SHIPPING SERVICES TO JAMAICA


RO/RO SHIPPING SERVICES TO JAMAICA

Ro/Ro (Roll on/Roll off) shipping service to Jamaica:

For transporting automobiles, cars, vehicles, buses, ambulances, fire trucks, tractor trucks, all other types of trucks, trailers, machinery, and much more, this is the most secure way of shipping via ocean transportation. Why? Because RO/RO carrier vessels have special inclines (ramps) constructed to enable vehicles to be loaded on and off the vessel using the vehicle’s own power. This is the safest, easiest, and most convenient way to transport drivable vehicles across continents.

How much does it cost to send a vehicle to Jamaica?

Between USD 350 and over USD 1500 depending on the type, size, weight, and location of the vehicle being shipped. Cargomax handles small automobiles, high and heavy equipment such as trucks, truck and trailer combinations, bulldozers, excavators, mining equipment, and everything in between.

CONTAINER SHIPPING SERVICES TO JAMAICA

Cargomax International offers ocean container service from the USA, Canada, China, and Europe to Jamaica. Our services include the ports of Kingston, Montego Bay, and Port Antonio.

This service is offered on cellular vessels and involves direct sailing from the East Coast of the United States and service with transshipment from China, Europe, and Canada. Our services are offered from major ports with the standard equipment types, such as 20’ STD Dry, 40’ STD Dry, 40 HC Dry, 45’ STD Dry, 20’ FL Dry, 40’ FL Dry, 20’ OT Dry, 40’ OT Dry, 20’ RF, 40’ RF, and 40’ RFH containers.

How much does it cost to ship a container to Jamaica?

Between USD 800 and over USD 4000, depending on the port of origin and service required, such as equipment types—20’, 40’, 40 HC, 45’, 20’ FL, 40’ FL, 20’ OT, 40’ OT, 20’ RF, 40’ RF containers.

LO/LO LIFT ON/ LIFT OFF SHIPPING SERVICES TO THE JAMAICA

Cargomax International offers Lo/Lo services on breakbulk vessels for your project cargo from most ports on the East Coast of the USA and Canada to Kingston, Montego Bay, and Port Antonio in Jamaica. Ports in China and Europe are also available. This service is provided on regular call from the US East Coast and on inducement from other origins.

How much does it cost to send cargo using Lo/Lo (lift on/lift off) services?

LoLo service can be tricky because everything is determined by the size of the cargo and the lifting points. The weight of the cargo must be well distributed when lifting onto and off the vessel.

For this service, there are many factors to consider, although the price will likely be 3000.00 or more, depending on the different factors involved.

OOG (OUT OF GAUGE CARGO) SHIPPING SERVICES TO JAMAICA

How much it cost to ship cargo with OOG service to Jamaica?

Like Lo/Lo, this service is determined by the size of cargo, dimensions, and lifting points. The weight of the cargo must be well distributed, but instead of being lifted on/off the vessel, the cargo will be secured on a 20’, 40’, or 45’ Flat Rack container or 60’ 90’ Mafi equipment. Cargo will be secured by blocking and bracing with straps and chains. The cost of this service could be 3000.00 or more.

ABOUT JAMAICA


Jamaica is a Caribbean Island located 90 miles south of Cuba. Jamaica is the 4th most populous country in the Caribbean, and relies heavily on tourism, over 4 million visitors a year come to tour the gorgeous beaches and coffee plantations. The official language is English and the official currency is the Jamaican dollar. The economy is heavily reliant on and encouraging private sector ownership and investment, and the agriculture and mining industries have both been growing. However, tourism remains the fastest-growing field, with the island being a popular stopover destination for visitors from North America, South America, Asia and Europe.

Many entrepreneurs struggle to find a reliable logistics partner to transport their cargo overseas. This challenge is even bigger when it comes to shipping to the Caribbean. Language barriers, lack of infrastructure and personnel in the area are some of the biggest issues faced by companies who are in need of moving commodities to countries like Jamaica.

Picking the right freight forwarder can make all the difference in ensuring your shipment has a successful outcome. However, several factors need to be taken into consideration in order to make the right choice.
