Shipping agricultural machinery overseas is a big undertaking, and it’s important to choose a reputable and reliable freight forwarding company.
At Seaway Logistics, we have over 20 years of experience in handling heavy and outsized cargo. From our base in Hull, we are ideally positioned to provide effective worldwide shipping solutions.
Agricultural machinery such as combine harvesters are bulky and high value items, and shipping them overseas takes a lot of forward planning and preparation. That’s why it is important to find a shipping company with a well-established reputation in the sector that you can put your trust in.
We provide a tailored service and are able to handle complex and non-standard shipping requirements. Our years of experience mean that we have the knowledge and flexibility to accommodate each client on a case by case basis, making us an ideal choice as one of the UK’s leading heavy vehicle freight forwarders.
There is no denying that shipping combine harvesters overseas can be a challenge, because of their weight and awkward shape. This may mean that standard containerised shipping is not an option. There are two main alternative methods: Lift-On/Lift-Off (LoLo), and Roll-On/Roll-Off (RoRo).
The most common solution for combine harvesters is the RoRo option, where the vehicle is driven or towed on board the vessel via ramps. It’s a quick and safe way to transport self-powered heavy vehicles overseas.
If for any reason the machinery cannot be driven or towed, the other option is to lift the vehicle on and off board the vessel via cranes, known as LoLo.
Seaway Logistics is a fully accredited company with membership of the British International Freight Association (B.I.F.A.) This gives you peace of mind that your valuable cargo will be dealt with safely, efficiently, and in accordance with all of the most up to date industry standards.
Whether you have an individual vehicle or a substantial fleet, we can handle all of the logistics and paperwork involved in a professional and no-fuss manner.
We work closely with all our clients to identify the best solutions for shipping their cargo, assessing requirements for packaging, transport and shipment needs. All our services are entirely bespoke and tailored to suit individual requirements. If you’d like to find out more, get in touch with the team today to discuss worldwide freight shipping.
