RORO Shipping from Mexico to Colombia

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 Security

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.

Carriers, Routes and Costs

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.

Container Shipping from Mexico to Colombia

Container shipping from Veracruz Mexico to Cartagena Colombia is the most secure method, provided you are present during the loading, sealing and unloading of the container.  We (where possible) use loading warehouses where our customers can be present at these critical times.

You have the option to ship in 20ft containers or 40ft High Cube (HC) containers. In a 20ft container you would normally only be able to fit one vehicle, 40ft HC you can fit 2 vehicles or one vehicle and a number of motorbikes.
