Automotive Market Full of Opportunities

Latin America is often recognized as the most urbanized region in the world, with nearly 80% of its population living in cities. The automotive industry in Latin America also offers a plethora of opportunities for auto exports from other countries. Colombia's automotive market, for example, has seen an increased demand for motor vehicles and auto parts beyond local production capabilities, making the country a good market for shippers to look into

Container and RORO car shipping rates to South America is determined by factors such as pickup location in the US, the vehicle type and size, international shipping method used, distance from the US departure port to the destination port, and time of the year.

If you’re shipping a car from the East Coast USA, it’s cheaper than shipping from the West Coast. In any of these US regions, the vehicle pickup location also influences the final shipping costs.

Shipping a compact car to Latin America is less expensive than shipping a big SUV or pickup truck. To get a quote for the size of your vehicle, contact AFL.

In Latin America, there are different countries to ship a car to from the United States. The distance your car would travel from the US border to a receiving port in your chosen Latin American country will have an impact on the final shipping price.
