Mozambique is a country in Southeast Africa that is bordered partially by the Indian Ocean. The country is largely based on agriculture and has many natural resources. Mozambique is also becoming known for its petroleum and aluminum production, as well as chemical manufacturing.
There are many reasons as to why a person might be going to Mozambique from the U.S. to reside or even stay a while. Often times, it is for study or employment. Regardless of why consider having your vehicle shipped to the country so that you can leisurely travel throughout the country and its surroundings.

Mozambique's Seaports and Popular Shipping Destinations
The country of Mozambique is home to five different seaports. These ports are all located along the coast of the Indian Ocean. Some are significantly larger than others, but regardless, they all make it easier to have a vehicle shipped to the country. Here are the five seaports that exist in Mozambique:
- Port of Maputo
- Port of Beira
- Port of Quelimane
- Port of Nacala
- Port of Pemba
These ports allow vehicle import. However, some of them may not accept RO/RO shipping, so make sure that you are able to find transportation to the correct port if the one closest to you doesn't accept the method of shipment you selected for your vehicle. You must be present the day that your vehicle arrives in port. A port will not hold a vehicle for the owner to retrieve it.
Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Mozambique
- Passport (original)
- Registration card (original)
- Purchase invoice (original)
- Import permit
- Inspection report
- Bill of lading
The Methods of Vehicle Shipment
There are technically three ways to have a vehicle exported to Mozambique. Only two of these methods are practical, considering that air shipping is very expensive and not affordable for many.
The RO/RO shipping method is the least costly option of shipment for a vehicle. The vehicle will be empty with a few exceptions and will be required to roll onto and off of the ship. This method is commonly chosen but not accepted at all seaports.
The container method of shipping is also a great option. This shipping method allows the owner of the vehicle to ship other belongings as well. The vehicle and the container can be packed with property allowed by Mozambique Customs. The container can be shared with someone and that will help to lessen the cost.
Be sure that you contact the Embassy of Mozambique before you try to have a vehicle shipped. You will have to make sure that you are complying with the vehicle shipment requirements set for the country. The embassy will inform you of all current regulations and required documentation.

The RoRo, LoLo and flat rack shipping services we have are all open air methods of transport. RoRo is the most favored and inexpensive option overall but your heavy equipment or large vehicle must have the ability to drive onto and off of the ship using a ramp. LoLo shipping is for inoperable vehicles and crated equipment that need to be lifted onto the boat, while flat rack is a more secure open air service that fastens your cargo to a frame. Container shipping is an enclosed service that is only available to those with heavy equipment small enough to fit into a 40ft container.
