Shipping Methods for Your Move

Deciding on the right shipping mode for your international move is important. Speaking of household goods, container shipping via ocean freight is one of the common ways to move overseas. You can get a shared or a solo container for your items. We can also arrange air freight, which is the fastest way to ship your personal belongings to Tanzania. 

When it comes to the international auto needs of our clients, we ship cars in containers and via RORO. Depending on your budget and the car value, you can opt for individual container or consolidated service where your car shares space with other customers’ autos. 

Our logistics agents are ready to answer any questions about shipping methods and work out the best moving solution for you. 

How Much Does It Cost to Ship to Tanzania?

The cost of international shipping depends on many variables. It can be expensive if your container covers a long distance between origin and destination or if you send your items or a car by air instead of ocean freight. That’s why it’s impossible to state the exact shipping rate because it relies on the following factors: 

  • Distance and origin
  • Size and volume of your contents
  • Make and model of your car
  • Shipping method
  • Time of the year
  • Import taxes 
  • Door-to-door or port-to-port service
