What factors influence the RORO shipping cost for heavy equipment?

One of the most significant factors in deciding the cost is distance of international shipping for heavy equipment. Transporting by RORO incurs the same expenditures as other modes of transportation. The prices consist primarily of fuel and labor costs.

The dimensions of the equipment determine the cost of international shipping for heavy equipment. If the equipment is huge and requires too much space, the international shipping cost may go up.

Is the equipment motorized? The cost may also differ based on whether the equipment is fully functional or not as a non-running vehicle would require additional drayage services.

If your equipment needs a storage facility, there will be additional charges for warehouse storage.

Depending on trade laws and federal standards, you might be subject to an import tax equal to the value of your vehicle! Imported vehicle taxes can be exorbitant in certain countries. Hence, the cost may vary for international shipping for heavy equipment.
