RORO From Florida to Colombia

Hello everyone!

I contacted Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics and requested a quote using RORO service from Florida to Colombia. Their fee was very affordable ($850) but they told me that I need a Freight Forwarder. My question is why this is needed, how do I hire a Freight Forwarder and how much will it cost me.


Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I think we have talk already

I think we have talk already about your trip and intentions.

The fact of the matter is, yes you need a knowledge agent or shipper to prepare al the documentation needed for Customs and shipping line. It is like  any other service, you need somebody who knows the procedure.

Shipping line are not going to serve you without the proper documentation, not Customs , not the port.

There are certain standards that you must follow to ship your vehicle. Do not venture on your own or you'll be stuck and big headache.

People try to save money as much as possible and it is undertandable but, don't try roto save on this respect because you'll regret it later.

My 2 cents
