Moving Vehicle Freight

Types of Vehicles Transported

  • Cars: This includes sedans, coupes, hatchbacks, SUVs, and other personal vehicles.
  • Trucks and Vans: Commercial vehicles ranging from small vans to trucks.
  • Motorcycles: Often transported on specialized carriers due to their unique dimensions.
  • Specialty Vehicles: Such as RVs, boats, and ATVs, which may require specialized handling.

Modes of Transportation

We can provide vehicle freight moved using many transportation types including:

  • Open Car Carriers: The big trailers you might have seen in the past that carry several vehicles at once. This can be suitable but the vehicles are left exposed vehicles to the elements during transportation. This can be a cost-effective option though.
  • Enclosed Car Carriers: These provide protection from weather, debris, and other hazards, making them suitable for luxury or classic vehicles.
  • Rail Transport: This can be a particularly good option for transporting a vehicle a long distance such as across Europe.
  • Shipping: For international transport, vehicles are often loaded onto cargo ships in specialized containers or as roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) cargo.

Logistics and Planning

  • Route Planning: Determining the most efficient routes to minimize transit time and costs.
  • Vehicle Inspection: Thoroughly inspecting vehicles before loading to document any existing damage.
  • Loading and Securing: Properly securing vehicles to prevent damage during transit, often using straps, wheel chocks, and other equipment.
  • Documentation: Ensuring all necessary paperwork, including customs forms for international shipments, is in order.


  • Weather Conditions: Adverse weather such as storms or extreme temperatures can affect transport schedules and vehicle condition.
  • Compliance with regulations: Ensuring adherence to legal standards and regulations, especially concerning shipments crossing borders or traveling internationally.
  • Maintaining vehicle condition: Ensuring that vehicles arrive at their destination without any damage or loss, minimizing the possibility of theft or harm during transit.
  • Timeliness: Meeting delivery deadlines, especially for commercial shipments or when vehicles are part of a larger supply chain.

Technology and Innovation

  • GPS Tracking: Real-time tracking of shipments enables better monitoring and management of vehicle movement.
  • Telematics: Utilizing sensors and data analytics to optimize routes, monitor vehicle condition, and enhance fuel efficiency.
  • Automated Loading Systems: Automated systems for loading and unloading vehicles, reducing manual labor and streamlining operations.
  • Electric and autonomous vehicles: With the emergence of electric and autonomous vehicles, adjustments in transport infrastructure and handling procedures may be necessary.
