Shipping Costs to West Africa

Vehicle size and weight, shipping method, destination, custom clearance fees, and shipment time all affect how much it costs to ship a car to Africa.

Dimension and weight pricing structure is one of the shipping industry’s standards used as a cost determining factor.

The costs of sending cars or auto supplies to West Africa also depend on whether you choose the RORO or Container shipping option. However, RORO shipping from the USA to Nigeria, Ghana, or other West African regions is less expensive than Container shipping.

The shipping costs will include the price for the miles that the cargo will travel from the United States to the final port of destination in the West Africa country of your choice.

Each West Africa region has its custom clearing fees and requirements for auto imports. The condition of your car (new or used), for example, may influence the total shipping costs due to higher taxes.

Increased demand for international shipping during the peak moving seasons of the year often means higher costs of shipping a car to Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, and other West Africa regions.

International car shipping from the US to West Africa timelines depend on factors such as route distance, shipping type, and the time of the year. Cargo shipments take significantly longer if many miles need to be traveled to reach the destination port. The average transit time, however, is roughly 30 days but can vary greatly depending on external factors. Waiting for your cargo to be consolidated with other containerized shipments could cause delays and increase shipping time. Further, shipping cars to Africa during peak moving seasons might cause shipment delays. To discover how to fast-track your car and auto supplies forwarding from the US to any West Africa region, contact AFL today.
The distance between the pickup and drop off locations of your cargo as well as international shipping costs determine how expensive your auto shipment would be. You may have to pay more, for instance, if you have us pick up the car from your designated location. Also, the size of the vehicular cargo can influence what you pay. You'll spend less on shipping a compact car than forwarding a large SUV to West Africa. Get an Instant Quote today based on your requirements.
To minimize the financial loss to you in the event of an accident or other mishaps while transporting your cargo over ocean freight, we recommend you get the optional marine insurance policy. AFL offers full-coverage marine and inland insurance for your vehicular investment against loss or damage from the point of pickup to when you receive your cargo at your destination.
