We offer an efficient freight service to all international destination ports, with many Airlines daily and Shipping lines departing every week. We can ensure your items are loaded soon after Pick Up/delivery.

Smaller items can sometime be more economical to send by Air freight, however for many larger shipments we can also provide Oocean Freight Services including 20ft or 40ft steel containers. Our services vary depending on your needs. We can supply a container for you to pack and load on-site. Our packing service includes packing, palletising and shrink-wrapping.

Ship to and from Peru

Container-shipping encompasses a number of different options. We offer 20ft or 40ft sole-use container services, to contain only your vehicle, to various ports in Peru and around the world. You effectively pay for the sole use of the container, for your vehicle only. (A number of options are available at extra cost should you have other requirements and wish to ship them at the same time.) Selected port destinations are also served by ocean-going RORO ferry services. Such vessels are purpose-built carriers, used by manufacturers to deliver brand-new vehicles around the world. Vehicles are protected from the elements in enclosed decks, and are secured by straps and chocks. Service frequency is usually once or twice a month, and the transit time is sometimes longer than for container vessels, but there can be useful cost savings on some routes than with container shipment.
