Importing cars from the USA
shipments from the USA to austria can be made via consolidated container, single container or roll-on/roll-off service.
Collection container service – a 40 or 45 foot container is used to transport several vehicles at the same time. The total cost is divided by the number of vehicles in the container. These costs include terminal handling charges, container handling, loading and unloading, and customs clearance charges. This method is faster than roro due to weekly departures. We use our steel ramp system for loading to ensure maximum protection against damage and loss, the other companies still use wooden ramps.
The big advantage here is that with our R rak system we can load safely and cheaply. Benefit here from our years of experience and well-trained employees. Send us your transport request now.
Full container load (FCL) – this process is similar to the collection container, except that there is only one vehicle per container. Costs that are shared with the collection container must be borne here alone. Container loads offer a very high level of safety. When the vehicle is received, pictures of the vehicle and the charging process are taken until the container door is closed. The vehicle will not be accessible until the container arrives at the unloading point. Here are pictures taken again, before and during the unloading process. Since the vehicle is completely safe in the container during the entire transport, additional cargo can be carried inside the vehicle. However, it is necessary to stow the cargo safely to avoid damage to the vehicle or the cargo. CFR is not responsible for items on board the vehicle. This method is faster than roro due to weekly departures. We only use our steel ramp system for loading to ensure maximum protection from damage and loss, the other companies still use wooden ramps.
Roll-on/roll-off – this is the method we use when we cannot ship the loads in a container. For example school buses, large agricultural vehicles, large boats on a trailer, etc. The vehicle is driven onto a large ferry and parked there.
