Sharing container from Houston to Colombia (Cartagena) Jan 2020

Hi DTA community,

I am planning to ship my car from Houston to Cartagena, Colombia in late January 2020. Shooting for an arrival in Cartagena around February 1st. 

Since I will be using a 40 feet container there will be plenty of room next to my Toyota 4Runner for a 2nd vehicle.

The freight forwarder I intent to use is Horizon Auto, shipping on Seaboard Marine. Given Seaboard's office location at the port in Cartagena it should make retrieving our vehicles a little easier. See also this account from a few years ago:

Please respond to this post and we can take it from there.

Happy travels!

Hi David,

Hi David,


The car is getting shipped this week so I am afraid it's too late to add your vehicle. If your car is in Houston and you are ready to ship I can reach out to my shipper tomorrow and see if they can still fit it in but I don't think the chance is high.
