Vehicle Logistics

A quick explanation of auto logistics


Transporting a vehicle from one place to another, especially if it’s crossing international borders or being shipped overseas, can seem like a daunting task. This is where Vehicle logistics comes in. Vehicle logistics is the ‘coordination of transporting vehicles between locations’, and a reputable vehicle logistics company like AUTOHUB can handle the process from end to end for you.

How can vehicle logistics help me?

If you’re looking to ship a vehicle overseas, a vehicle logistics company can take care of the whole process for you; from picking up the vehicle from the seller to delivering it safely to its destination.

They’ll work with you to determine the best solution for your shipping needs, such as deciding whether to use a roll-on-roll-off service, or a container shipping solution. And, in the case of the vehicle being shipped internationally, will deal with customs clearances and help you ensure your car meets the legal requirements of its destination.

Do logistics change depending on where I’m shipping my vehicle to or from?

Yes and no. Different countries have different requirements in terms of GST/VAT payment, customs clearance, and what makes a car legal to drive on the open road. A vehicle logistics company will be able to advise on any paperwork or certification you need for the vehicle you’re transporting and where to find guidance and information about the regulations. Some will even organise this for you as part of their services.

All you need to do is provide the pick-up and drop off location for the vehicle, show proof of purchase, and pay the transportation fee. Then, you just wait for your vehicles to arrive at your doorstep.

How does it work?

Once you’ve engaged a vehicle logistics company to transport a vehicle for you, their process will kick into gear. They’ll contact local transportation company required to pick up your vehicle from its current location, then move it to the nearest port for international transport. Once at the port, the car will be inspected and prepped for shipping before being sent to its destination port.

The vehicle logistics company will take the car through any border inspections and customs clearances, as well as any other regulatory checks, before transporting the car to your desired destination. They will also ensure your car has full insurance, to give you peace of mind.

Whether you’re transporting a single car as a one-off or are in the business of buying and selling cars, a vehicle logistics company will remove the stress of transporting your vehicles. An experienced team who’ve done it all before will make it seamless and pain-free – so you can concentrate on your business or car hobby.
