SHIPPING SERVICES TO PUERTO RICO


RO/RO SHIPPING SERVICES TO PUERTO RICO

Ro/Ro (Roll on/Roll off) shipping service to Puerto Rico:

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 Puerto Rico?

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 PUERTO RICO

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 San Juan in Puerto Rico. 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 PUERTO RICO

How much it cost to ship cargo with OOG service to Puerto Rico?

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.
