Stuck in SA! Need RoRo to USA

We're stuck in SA with our camper . . . we need RoRo and the last two months we've had ships cancelled on us. If anyone has RoRo ideas out of any South America ports (pref. Chile or Argentina) to any US port, please reply. I've tried all the contacts on the shipping page here. Thanks!

the next RoRo from Chile is

the next RoRo from Chile is out from Antofagasta to Galveston Tx. . Departing January 29th , but you should be there 4-5 days prior to departure.

Ther previous RoRo ship was cancelled

There is also a RoRo/mixed with containers that leaves Valparaiso and antofagasta every week or so, However booking is a must and quickly .

If your camper does not fit a container these are the options. Get ion contact withh us and we could help you.

we used K-Line

We shipped RORO from BA (with a stop in Mexico) to Jacksonville FL back in 2010 using Kline (see  We went with Kline after NYK cancelled on us. When we were shipping their agent in BA was very helpful, athough at the time didn't speak any English.

Kobus ,

Kobus ,

I ahve just wrote you an email through your web page.



We are shipping a container  to Seattle/Tacoma around end of March/beg.April or before with few motorcycles.
We offer a complete package, storage, Customs clearance , loading , trucking to port, freight and destination clearance.

Bikes run for about $1,550 +$200 destination
Cars run for $3,250+$300 destination on  shared container

If you need an exclusive container (20 ft) the complete freight service is around $4,300 plus destination charges , around $600-$800 (clearance, xrays, inspection, trucking and unloading).

I am not sure if you vehicle fit in a 40 ft container high cube. If not the only solution I can offer yuo is RoRo from Antofagasta , Chile or LOLO from Valparaiso or Antofagasta to Houston


Please sned me a PM at samericaxplorer [at]

Seattle/Tacoma RORO, possible?

Hi saexplorer,

This is good information. I sent you an email earlier this morning. But I didn't see the RoRo information then. Our vehicle will fit a container, but the Roro costs are much cheaper, so we would prefer to go this route. Do the ships from both Antofagasta and Valparaiso both only arrive in Houston? We would much prefer to ship to Portland or Tacoma. Please let me know if that is possible.

Again, thanks for your help.

I have published at the top

I have published at the top of this forum the latest on our shipment to Seattle/Tacoma from Santiago Chile.

Have in mind, RoRo ios not possible from Chile to the U.S. except on a LOLO type of shipment and to Houston.
