To successfully transport commercial trucks to Africa from the USA it is necessary to meet both the export requirements of the USA and the import requirements of the African country the trucks are being shipped to.
There may be other additional requirements in place as well, depending on the specific type of commercial truck you are shipping and the country you are shipping to. It is important that you understand the export and import rules and regulations so that your trucks are delivered as soon as possible without delay.
The cost to transport commercial trucks to Africa from the USA can vary substantially. The shipping distance will play a part in the total cost, and so will the weight, size, and volume of the commercial trucks being shipped.
For some African destinations you may be required to have certain permits, and you will also be expected to pay any port fees and other related expenses if these are not covered by the shipping quote you received. Import taxes, duties, and other financial assessments may also need to be paid for, and are part of the total cost to ship your truck.
Choosing the right shipper to transport commercial trucks to Africa from the United States is essential. The shipper is responsible for the export permits and certain documentation in most cases, so you want a shipping company that has experience in both shipping commercial trucks and shipping vehicles to Africa.
A common mistake when shipping commercial trucks is to neglect adequate marine insurance. Many people believe that if anything happens or damage is done then the shipping company will be responsible, but this is not always true. Most shippers are only liable for about $500-$1,000 at the most, and without marine insurance you could have a big loss if anything happens.
