4 Seas International Shipping Inc. is one of the freight forwarders involved in shipping cars to Suriname for the Amazon Rally. One Container with a 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser was loaded at their warehouse facility in Miami, Florida. The container departed from Port Everglades on September 13, 2016 and arrived as scheduled in Paramaribo on September 24.
After completing the customs formalities, the vehicle was unloaded on September 27 in due time for the Rally.
The Amazon Adventure starts on October 7 in Paramaribo and will last 24 days. Suriname is the smallest country in South America and Dutch is spoken by 60% of the population as a mother tongue.
French Guiana is the next stop on the journey. The country is a department of France and the official language is French and the currency is the Euro. This will come in handy for the European participants.
The Rally continues to Brazil with its wonderful rainforest. Most of the time will be spent at the Amazon National Reserve exploring nature. The final stop will be Peru with a visit to Machu Picchu, one of the 7 Wonders of the World.
Bespoke Rallies in the U.K. is the organizer of this fascinating event. They offer adventurous classic car rallies and tours in some of the world’s most fascinating regions.
4 Seas International Shipping is specialized in shipping cars from the U.S. to any destination across the globe and they distinguish between Container and Ro/Ro service.
“Most customers prefer this option when it comes to the transportation of classic, antique or high value vehicles. It also allows the shipper to leave personal effects, car parts or any other items in the car at no extra charge” said Yasmin Stover, Vice President of 4 Seas International.
Professional warehouse personnel securely block, brace and tie down the vehicles to prevent them from moving during transportation. Vehicles such as trucks, buses, campers and self-propelled agricultural equipment do not fit into containers and have to be shipped Ro/Ro . They are driven onto the vessel and stored below deck to prevent exposure from the elements. Jens Boerner, Logistics Manager at 4 Seas International Shipping adds “this service does not allow anything inside the vehicles except for one car jack and one spare tire”.
