Roll On/Roll Off
We can arrange for one of two different services to ship your vehicle from the UK to Namibia. RORO, which stands for roll on/roll off, is when your vehicle is driven onto a specially designed vessel and safely secured below decks, this way is the easiest and most cost effective option of the two. There are frequent departures from all major ports and loading process could not be simpler. Roll on/roll off is available from the UK port of Sheerness to the port of Walvis Bay, Namibia. Sailings are every 2–3 weeks, transit times being 15–18 days.
Loading into Container
The second option is to ship your car loaded into a container, your vehicle is safely secured within, and the doors closed and locked before the container is lifted on to its designated vessel. You will usually be able to place personal effects into the vehicle before it is loaded. This is something not usually allowed for RORO. For secured container transport, Felixstowe, Tilbury and Sheerness all offer this service, transit time to Walvis Bay, Namibia is approximately 19 days and sailings are once again every 2–3 weeks. You can check out our up to date sailing schedule and see when the next available sailings are for your destination.
