Our regular sailings take about 26 days from the UK to Dar es Salaam port by sea and it is still the most preferred method of transport to Tanzania to date. The ease of loading and unloading the vessel makes this option a great choice for our customers which in turn helps us to keep our costs to you as low as possible.
The roll on/roll off vessel is a purpose built ship that has the capacity to hold over 2000 vehicles. From saloon cars, 4 x 4’s, trucks and trailers to huge pieces of plant machinery can be shipped on board at any one time safely across the ocean. All vehicles are parked and secured below deck using ratchet straps to the front and the rear, these straps are continually checked to ensure that all vehicles remain secure throughout the voyage. Safety on board the ship is taken very seriously, any vehicle being shipped by roll on/roll off to Dar es Salaam and be assured that their vehicle is in safe hands from the moment it loads right up until it has been delivered to Tanzania.

Do vehicles need an inspection before shipping to Tanzania?
The Tanzania Bureau of Standards requires that all vehicles being shipped to Dar es Salaam or simply just transiting through Tanzania must now have a pre-shipment inspection prior to being shipped from the UK. Failure to have this prior to shipping to Dar es Salaam will result in a hefty fine to the consignee in Tanzania. First Base Freight can arrange this for you prior to delivery to the UK port or you can arrange this yourself. If we do this for you the cost will be £190.00 per vehicle and will be inspected at Sheerness port, Immingham port or you can deliver it their office in Tilbury.
