International shipping & Forwarding services
Fastlane Forwarding is an international shipping company based in UK that offers three different ways of shipping cars and goods. These 3 different ways are:
- Roll On/Roll Off Service - Ro/Ro (for cars, trucks and vans)
- Private container Service - 20 foot and 40 foot containers ( for cars and personal effects)
- Shared Container Service - 20 foot and 40 foot containers (for cars, personal effects and commercial goods)
Roll On/Roll off Shipping Service - Ro/Ro
With Roll - on/roll - off (Ro/Ro), goods such as Cars, Lorries, Trucks, and Trailers can be transporterd from one country another.Not all countries can accomodade RO - RO car shipping, This is because the unloading of this type of ship requires special docks.The vehicles are transported in specially designated places on the ship. On arrival at the destination port, the cars are unloaded by driving them out on special ramps aligned with the cargo deck.
Shipping Service in a Private container
For those wishing to ship their cars or goods in private containers,this can also be done.Our shipping agents will position your private container at our shipping warehouse. After that, a professional car loader will drive your car into the container and will secure it for Car shipping. When the container reaches the destination you will be advised to go and collect the container. Understandably, this type of International shipping becomes slightly more expensive because you are paying for the full container even though you may not be using the full space it offers. The benefits to this form of shipping cars is that the car your import will be safe from any sort of damage or theft that may occur on board.
Shared Container Services
For those whishing to ship more than 2 cars, we can offer a high cube container. This containers loads up to 4 cars into a single container.
The shared container service means that cars can be loaded or off loaded safely without any damage to the vehicles.. Thus, it saves money for the international shipping companies which is directly passed on to you in the form of cheaper Shipping Rates.
Using this way of shipping, 3 or 4 cars depending upon the size of the car are loaded in a high cube forty foot container.
