Why is Overseas Auto Transportation so Complicated?

Overseas Auto TransportationIf you’ve been following our blogroll at all, or if you’re someone whose job includes getting vehicles shipped from one area to another, you likely know a bit about overseas auto transportation and how it works. If you don’t, here’s a quick overview: when you ship a vehicle to Alaska, Hawaii or some other overseas U.S. territory, you book your order like normal with an auto transport broker, who then arranges transportation from your pickup location to the port on the west coast with one carrier, then they hire the port shipper to ship it overseas. A lot of people have asked why the division of labor is the way it is when shipping overseas, and why it’s so complicated, which is what we’re going to explain a bit about today.

Overseas auto transportation is done the way it’s done because it pretty much has to be. Auto transport brokers are great because they have relatively low costs in comparison to other transportation companies, which means they can do a lot with a little; a small office, a few employees and a bit of cash flow is all it takes to broker freight. Actually getting it transported overseas is something that no brokerage can do by themselves, and overland auto transport trucks obviously can’t drive their vehicles on the water. Someone has to have the resources to ship big things overseas, though, and that’s where the port shipping company comes in.

They don’t just handle cars; since getting items overseas is as difficult as it is, port shippers often handle a lot of different freight from a lot of different industries. Naturally, storing all of those different things on a single cargo ship can be problematic, so they have to work everything in very carefully. Vehicles are handled much differently from boxed freight; some cargo ships owned by a port shipper will load vehicles into those large metal shipping containers, but others will simply chain vehicles to the deck, underneath the top deck more often than not.
