The transportation of automobiles and components often requires special conditions.

That is why the transportation of oversized cargo requires the route to be approved by the appropriate authorities and the cargo to be transported on specialized platforms.

International car and spare part transportation by sea is carried out with the use of specialized intermodal containers and ferries. Transportation of tractors, as well as specialized vehicles and cars by rail, requires renting special train carriages. Spare parts and components can be transported in standard freight carriages alongside other cargo. In some cases, the transportation of cars, vehicles and spare parts is carried out by air. Usually only expensive cars, components, and spare parts are transported by air, or when the situation requires maximum speed and safety of delivery.

- MARKET KNOWLEDGE
The rules for the carriage of car cargo are determined on the basis of several criteria, including: the type of transport used for delivery, the weight and dimensions of the cargo, and the geography of transportation. In each specific case, carriers refer to the rules for cars and automotive equipment transportation by road, rail, air or sea transport. It should also be taken into account that the legislation of many states establishes special rules for the circulation transport vehicles and also impose legal liability for non-compliance with the rules concerning the transport of cars from other countries.
The rules for the transportation of cars are diverse, as are the types of documents necessary for carrying out such transportation. For example, automobile compontents and specialized transport veicles, like trucks, often exceed the permissible standards of overall dimensions and weight and belong in the oversized category of cargo. For the transportation of oversized transport vehicles, a special permit, coordination of the transportation route, and other formalities are required. Norms governing the process of carriage of cars are contained in a number of technical regulations. All these documents establish complex and detailed rules for carrying out automobile transportation. AsstrA not only monitors compliance with relevant rules and regulations but also advises on the preparation of related documentation, including shipping documents, invoices, customs declarations, permits, etc.
