The Republic of Yemen is a country situated at the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, with Saudi Arabia to its north, Oman to the east, and bordered to the west and south by the waters of the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, and the Arabian Sea. The Gulf of Aden is the body of water where Yemen’s main seagoing port, Aden, does commerce with the rest of the world. The ideal characteristics of the Gulf and the surrounding terrain allow Aden to be considered one of the best natural ports in the world.
When you’re importing your vehicle to Yemen, it’s important to choose an international shipper well-versed in the intricacies of shipping cargo to that area of the world, because the requirements tend to be fairly stringent. A company that has often dealt with the port authority there would be a good choice to handle your shipment because the authorities will have had some prior working relationship and some trust built up.
After having selected a shipper with good knowledge of Middle Eastern shipping requirements, the next things to decide are how you will get your vehicle to the departure port in the U.S. and how you want your vehicle shipped while in transit.
Your choices on how to get the vehicle to port are pretty simple – either you can drive it to the port yourself or you can have the vehicle picked up by your shipper. If you’re driving the vehicle to port, you’ll have to know ahead of time which ports your shipper has departures from in your area of the U.S.
Having figured all that out, you then need to arrange with your shipper for a method of shipping, which involves how your vehicle will be secured onboard the ship for the ocean-going part of the journey. The most common shipping methods are RORO (Roll-on/Roll-off) and container shipping.
RORO shipping means that your vehicle will be driven on and off the ship by means of a ramp, and then secured to an upper or lower deck for the trip. Container shipping will have your vehicle placed inside a closed container of either 20-ft or 40-ft in length and anchored securely inside the container.
Of the two, RORO shipping is the less expensive because the charges to you basically are contingent upon how much space your vehicle takes up onboard. Container shipping provides an extra layer of protection for your vehicle but does consume at least 20-ft of valuable shipboard space.
Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Yemen
- Bill of lading.
- Certificate of origin.
- Certificate of manufacturing (with date)
- Work permit.
General Requirements for exporting
In order to export a vehicle from the U.S., you will be required to demonstrate to domestic authorities that you are the legal owner of the vehicle, that you have a valid driver license, and that there are no liens against the vehicle.
This means you will have to provide proof of a bill of sale for the car, and a title showing no liens or if there is a lien, a certified document from the lienholder indicating approval for shipment. Your vehicle must have nothing inside it except for one set of keys for driving on and off the ship, and for that, it must have less than ¼ tank of gas.
At the destination port, your vehicle will have to go through Yemeni Customs, which will involve an inspection to see if it meets emission standards, so in order to avoid hang-ups, it will be advisable to have the vehicle in excellent running condition.
Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Yemen
Shipping oversized cargo and heavy equipment to another nation such as Yemen isn’t easy to do without anything you need. This may include things such as haulers or the right shipping materials and equipment. Not to mention, you’ll need to tolerate the foreign import policies of the nation which isn’t typically that easy for any persons without prior understanding and knowledge. Luckily, A1 Auto Transport can help oversee the cargo’s delivery regardless of what it is or where it must go.
Any cargo that cannot fit into a 40ft shipping container is considered as oversized through A1. However, if your cargo fits into a shipping container yet exceeds the standard weight limitations, it may also be considered heavy equipment. Here are a few examples of the heavy and oversized equipment we’re able to have shipped to Yemen and any other nation (lawfully permitting):
- Tractors, combines & other farm equipment
- Backhoes and excavators
- RVs and motorhomes
- Industrial equipment
- Bulldozers, dump trucks and forklifts
- Hydraulic equipment
- Oversized engines
- Pile drivers
- Large trucks & heavy vehicles
- Engineering & agricultural equipment
At A1 Auto Transport, we ensure a safe transport of your heavy equipment from the United States to Yemen. Throughout the entire shipping process you will benefit from our guidance while having the ability to monitor your cargo’s whereabouts through satellite tracking services. Your cargo is also protected by partial insurance coverage during its transport.
The Shipping Options We Have Available
Depending on the equipment you need to ship and the route that must be taken to carry out the delivery successfully, there are several shipping methods that we have available. Some of these options offer more security than others and some of them are much less expensive than others. Here is what we have to offer our customers...
- LoLo Shipping or Lift On/Lift Off- Using a crane, we will safely lift your cargo onto the ship. Once the cargo reaches the port closest to or in Yemen, it will be lifted off the ship in the same manner. This shipping service applies primarily to non-op vehicles and crated heavy equipment.
- RoRo Shipping or Roll On/Roll Off- This method of transport is the cheapest option one available. With this shipping method, the motorized piece of equipment or operable vehicle is rolled onto and off of the ship using a ramp.
- Container Shipping- This method tends to cost a bit more yet it isn’t available to all those shipping heavy equipment. If your heavy cargo fits into the container than you’re likely able to request this method of transport. The walls and ceiling of the container provide the ultimate protection during your cargo’s travels.
- Flat Rack Shipping- This shipping method uses what appears to be the frame of a shipping container. Lacking walls or a ceiling, your cargo is secured to the frame for its transport. The frame with your cargo secured, is placed atop the ship for its delivery. Depending on the weather, your cargo may be shielded by shrink wrap or plastic sheeting.
