What Agricultural Equipment Can Ship Internationally?
With today’s global economy and increased emphasis on international trade, many agricultural businesses are looking into shipping their farming equipment overseas. In addition to combine and tractor export, some of the other types of farm machinery and equipment we ship but are not limited to:
HANDLING of AGRICULTURAL EQUIPMENT SHIPPING
The agricultural equipment requires special handling and customs clearance to guarantee safe passage across the globe. Heavy machinery and equipment used for agricultural applications usually won’t fit inside a standard ISO shipping container. This means you may need custom out-of-gauge shipping solutions to protect your goods during transit.
Another option to consider when shipping agricultural equipment internationally is Roll On, Roll Off (RoRo) shipping. Self-propelled equipment like tractors and harvesters enable carriers to drive the vehicle onto the shipping vessel deck, which is secured for transport without a container.
While these processes may take some extra effort, agricultural companies can broaden their market reach beyond their local regions to grow their business.
