International Heavy Equipment and Oversized Cargo Shipping Options
At A-1, we use the industry shipping practices in transporting your oversized and/or large freight to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. One of the most common and economical ways to ship your cargo is by the RoRo (Roll On/Roll Off) option. Mostly reserved for self propelled vehicles it’s the most simplistic way to ship. Entering the ship’s hull, your vehicle is guided up ramps and secured to mounts within the ship. If you would rather have your cargo shipped by means of a container then you could use that option as well. Containers come in sizes of 20 and 40 feet and aren’t always ideal for larger/heavier cargo. They do provide more security from the elements at a higher price.
If your item is too large for a container and not able to propel onto the ship, then transporting via LoLo (Lift On/Lift Off) would a way to go. With help of a crane operator, your cargo is lifted and placed onto the ship. This is a very good way to ship all sorts of large and heavy items since they will be lifted and placed on top of the ship. A bit more expensive than other methods of transport due to the man hours involved. You can use a flat rack to get your oversized cargo to Mauritania. Flat racks only have sides on the short side of the rack, so freight can extend out the side of the open container during transit. Very versatile as it can be used to ship mostly anything not made available by the other shipping options.
