How We Ship To Zambia
Zambia is a landlocked country so export will have to be done to the nearest port. The simplest option is to ship to Walvis Bay, Namibia by a RORO vessel. From there you will have to arrange your own delivery to Zambia with your consignee or agent in the country. If this is not the best option for you and your requirements, a different shipment to Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania can be made. Getting in contact with us is the best way to organise a reliable journey to wherever you need to be.
A roll on/roll off vessel is specially designed to hold thousands of cars and transport them safely to all major ports overseas. Your car is simply driven inside and secured, and then driven off at its destination. This is a very popular method with frequent sailings at most ports for affordable rates.
Another method of transport is by putting your car inside a freight container. Your car will be safely loaded inside and transported on a cargo vessel, ensuring the utmost safety for your vehicle. This method is not always available depending on the time of year and full enquiries must be made if you want to use this method. The main ports of departure for transport to Zambia will be Sheerness and Immingham in the UK. The receiving port of Walvis Bay is in Namibia. The transit times are between 19–21 days. There are between 2 to 3 sailings to Walvis Bay every month.
