Australia to Africa shipping vehicle

In planning a future trip I need to know advice on the following possible shipping routes for a 4WD:

1) Australia (prefer west coast but can be east coast) to Sth Africa

2) Australia to Kenya

3) Australia to India

4) Australia to Suez Canal or Horn of Africa

Sounds like a lot but really I am happy to do my own research. I just wanted to get an idea if anyone knows whether these routes exist. Any websites for Australian based shipping companies?

Hi Mel

For shipping by sea, we strongly recommend dealing with an international shipping company who are more likely to have local staff and have organized processes. Several companies have been recommended by travellers. In no particular order, they are:

Hellman Worldwide Logistics have offices throughout Australia, including Melbourne. See the following link for contact details:

Panalpina is also international, and has an office in Melbourne. Panalpina World Transport Pty. Ltd.

+61 3 93385850 fax

Their website is: http://www.panalpina.com

And finally, Wallenius Wilhelmsen also has offices in Australia, including Melbourne.

Good luck with your trip, and keep in touch. Don't forget there is a lot of info on this site to help you plan your trip. Check out the Sahara Forum, which has a lot of info for 4WD travellers, and also the 4WD Travel Forum for non-Sahara subjects and technical discussions.
