SHIPPING SERVICES TO DOMINICAN REPUBLIC


RO/RO SHIPPING SERVICES TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

 Ro/Ro (Roll on/Roll off) Shipping service to Santo Domingo:

Ro/Ro (Roll on/Roll off) shipping service to Santo Domingo: 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 DOMINICAN REPUBLIC?

Between USD 350 and 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 CAUCEDO,RIO HAINA, AND PUERTO PLATA

Cargomax International offers ocean container service from the USA, Canada, China, and Europe to the Dominican Republic. Our services include the ports of Caucedo, Rio Haina, and Puerto Plata.

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 the Dominican Republic?

 

Between USD 800 and 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 DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

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 Santo Domingo, Caucedo, Rio Haina, and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. 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 of 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 CAUCEDO, RIO HAINA AND PUERTO PLATA

How much it cost to ship cargo with OOG service to the Dominican Republic?

 

Similar to 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 DOMINICAN REPUBLIC


The Dominican Republic occupies the eastern side of the island of Hispaniola, with Haiti on the western side. In recent times the Dominican Republic has been one of the most vibrant economies in the Caribbean. Its traditional exports have been tobacco, coffee, and sugar. But the small country has expanded its mining industry greatly, along with tourism and finance. The Dominican Republic is also the third most populous country in the Caribbean, with three of its ten million residents living in the capital city of Santo Domingo.  

 

The Dominican Republic is the 8th largest economy in Latin America, and the largest in the Caribbean. It is home to the largest gold mine in Latin America, and the mining industry is growing fast. Tourism is also a fast-growing industry, accounting for 1 billion in annual earnings. The other main industries are ferronickel mining, textiles, cement production, tobacco, and sugarcane.   

Many entrepreneurs struggle to find a reliable logistics partner to transport their cargo overseas. In this scenario, picking the right logistics partner makes all the difference to ensure your shipment will have a successful outcome. Our brand is known among major importers in Dominican Republic.
