Hi Haakon

M&M Transport logistics services
M&M Militzer & Münch - M&M Group

I shipped motorbikes with'em three times (Uzbekistan-Zürich, Ulaanbaatar-Vancouver, Miami-Zürich)


They have an office in Ulaanbaatar and a very good network in the northern hemisphere.

Mrs. Bayarkhuu

M&M International Forwarders

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

She made a great job and it was also cheaper than Tuskiin(or similar) which is the most famous Freight forwarder in Ulaanbaatar.

Good luck

So, how much did you pay for shipping from UB?
A rough amount will be helpful for deciding a travel budget!

Thanks

Prices Mumnet

Well,
From UB to Vancouver I paied $2700 (crating excluded). That's a hell lot of money but UB is a shitty place to ship something to Canada. I remember Tuuskin, the most famous freight-forwarder in UB was about $300 or $400 more expensive. I'm sure it is cheaper to fly a bike to europe.

From Tashkent (Uzbekistan) zu Zürich I paied about $1900 (crating included). They had to fly it Tashkent-Prag-Munich-Zürich.

From Miami to Zürich I paied $1600 (crating excluded)


Those prices were all inclusive and for Airfreight. The box was everytime about 350kg.

Of course you well ship your bike much cheaper, if you find somebody to share a container with. I couldn't finde someone and I didn't have the time to search much longer..

Wish you good luck and cheap shipping..

Glenn

A similar thread is at http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...zakhstan-60406 including my reply ref the Pain-In-The-Arse-ness of shipping TO Mongolia.

Ref shipping FROM Mongolia to Europe I got the following info via an email from PanEuropa in mid-2011

Quote
Rates import from Ulan Bator to Germany for bikes packed into strong wooden cases stackable
Outgoing customs in Ulan Bator 55,- Euro
Freight Ulan Bator - Tamm (Germany) 375,- Euro per cubimetre
Incoming customs clearance 85,- Euro incl. 1 customs tariff number and
each further 9,- Euro
Customs inspection 65,- Euro
Limited cover transport insurance 1,45%
Oncarriage to Leeds 375,- Euro
Unquote

This is for land/sea freight. So about e700 to Germany for 2 m3 plus customs fees. I recall somebody else got a pallet made in UB for e200.

Hope this info is useful.

Chris

PS I live near Leeds/UK
PPS I'm shipping my bike this year with 11 mainly Dutch guys to Almaty/Kaz: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...zachstan-60688
