RORO Shipping from Colombia to Mexico
RORO is the best and cheapest option for oversized vehicles that cannot fit into a container. The alternative is to go flat rack. For smaller vehicles the cost of RORO and sharing a container is comparable.
RORO shipping is less complicated than Container shipping as there is no requirement to stuff and truck the container to and from the port.
RORO does pose a greater security risk, as employees of the shipping line will have access to your vehicle. Most travellers ensure that their vehicle is secured in such a way that the rear portion is not accessible in any way, they do this by creating an internal barrier and ensuring any doors cannot be opened.

There are several RORO carriers that go from Mexico to Cartagena and Santa Marta in Colombia. The prices between each of these carriers can fluctuate quite significantly.

Please note that customs in Mexico only one temporary import permit to be issued per person, therefore if you have more than one motorised vehicle, then the second vehicle must be imported under a second person’s name. It is advantageous to ensure that the paperwork for the second vehicle matches the name of the person intending to import it. If you are a married couple/partnership having a person’s name on at least one of the vehicle ownership documents is also advantageous generally travel in the Americas. If your documents do not include the second person’s name then you should ensure that you have notarised power of attorney in Spanish providing permission for the second person to import and use the vehicle.
