How We Ship

We can arrange for the export of your vehicle from the UK to Tanzania by either one of two methods. RORO is the more popular of the two when it comes to car transport. There are frequent sailings from all major ports and the loading procedure could not be simpler. All vehicles being shipped are driven on board the specially made vessel, and are parked on one of the multiple decks designed to hold thousands of cars at any one time. These cars are then strapped and locked down for the journey. Once at their destination, the cars can simply be released and driven off. Departures are available 3 times a month from the ports of Sheerness and Tilbury, and arrive at Dar es Salaam. Transit time is between 24 to 32 days.

Loading your vehicle into a container is the alternative to RORO. Services are available to Dar es Salaam from Southampton or Felixstowe. Your car can be stored inside a 20ft or 40ft container, which is closed and locked for the journey before being lifted on to its vessel for transport. Dar es Salaam is the largest city in Tanzania and has a railway infrastructure (TAZARA) connecting the beautiful coastal town to the neighbouring country of Zambia (the Western border), we can even arrange for our Agents to assist you with on carriage or delivery if required.
