Shipping Type & Shipping Costs

Sharp Intercontinental Shipping works with three methods of shipping, each one of them having its specific conditions:

Containerised Shipping of vehicles:

This method is limited only by the size of the cargo. To ship your cargo by this method we have 20FT and 40FT containers. In order to have lower fees and thus lower rates, we choose to load more than one vehicle in a container. So in a 40FT container we can fit 1 to 5 cars, for example. From our experience we have learnt how to load effectively and safely the vehicles and we have perfected two types of loading: R-Rack and Wooden Ramps (read more about the loading here).

Most containerized shipping departs from Cape Town or Durban where we have weekly sailing schedules and direct routes that ensure a quick transit from South Africa to our other branches. It is believed that the container shipping is the safest method and we can confirm that from our experience. A container allows us to add multiple safety features. The best part about this method is that it is available all over the world so you don’t have to worry whether the port where your car must arrive can receive containers or not.

RoRo or “Roll on, Roll off”

This type of shipping is more suitable for large vehicles that don’t fit into a container. In this case your vehicle is loaded on the deck of a specialized vessel and shipped to its destination. This method is considered to be the cheapest, but it has disadvantages too. For example, not all ports have spaces special designated for RoRo vessels. All the vehicles from Cape Town must be relocated to Durban or Port Elizabeth as they are the only ones in South Africa that have special loading ramps. And maybe the biggest disadvantage is that it takes way longer for your cargo to reach the destination than with containerized method.

Break Bulk

This method is usually used for commercial cargo that needs to be loaded by crane onto the ships hold. This was the most common methods years ago, but now it is left as a last option. We only use it for certain kinds of cargo and for reputable routes.

We can advise you about the best method that suits to your vehicle. But in order to do that we need all the information that you can give about your vehicle including some pictures. Rates will vary accordingly to the type and dimensions of the vehicle. To apply for a rate today, click here!
