We are currently looking into shipping ourselves and our motorbikes from Vladivostok to USA.


We are planning to be in vladivostok around Mid June 2012 -if anyone would like to share a shipping container with us, please get in touch.

If anyone can give us some information on companies that may help us do this or if anyone has recently been to russia and done similar, we would love to hear from you.

Just for reference my quote from Yuri was $4500 & $5500 from vlad to southampton UK and Seattle USA respectively, that was for a 20' ISO container with a $200 surcharge per each additional bike, too much for me sadly but passing the info along

There hasn't been a scheduled air freight to Anchorage from Vlad for some time ... certainly none there when we were in Vlad last year..but things change so who knows.

My plan is to take the ferry to south korea and than a plane. Wendy told me, that there is no cargo flight to Alaska. She only can offer me Vancouver, San Fransisco or L.A.
Option would be to take the passanger flight to Alaska but than I need a whole container. Thats about $11.000, thats too expensive. If there is another one than it would be ok, there is place for 3 bikes in a container.

Drive2 ,,
With all due respects to Wendy ,, she is not a cargo person.

I have strongly recommeded her for doing the customs clearance, and that only,, in and out of Korea ,, for a fee around USD 100. She is a wonderful person,,, but not really a qualified freight expert.

Alaska Air, Korean Air, Asiana ,, all flies to Alaska ,, some to Vancouver or Seattle then to Alaska ,, carrying both passenger and cargo ,,
Call the airlines cargo department direct.
You will have to hire a forwarder ,, have Wendy do the paper work.
Expect some where USD 2,500 per bike, for the shipment.

I also have an alluminium bike air cargo box, which I got from Harley and very light,, if you need one ,, making the box by the shipping company would be around USD 500 ... it will be wood and takes a day or so.

Call the airlines ,, ,some of them will say ,, they can only quote to a freight forwarder,,, so find one in Anchorage ,, let him have airline comm,,, do the paperwork for the arrival ,,

Even ask from Vlad to Anchorage ,,, Korean air and aerofloat flies to Seoul from Vlad,, think of it as a baggage service ,, they load and transfer ,, they don't have to fly direct ,,

Danzas in the list is a EU company , offices every where in the world ,,

@seouljoe

Thanks for that information. Now I have an offer by DHL. They can arrange the transport by air from Seoul to Anchorage for about € 2800.

What is the price for your cargo box?

seouljoe 23 Mar 2012 15:39

ICN to Alaska
 
2,800 Euro from DHL sounds bit stiff.
Call Korean air and Alaska also ,,
I paid DHL for Frakfurt to Seoul 2,300 Euro,, basis 450KG ,, 2.1m x 1.4x 1.1 m box.
Box is free ,, but I did pay USD 130 for the transport from Harley to my cottage.
You can have the box gratis,,,,just after using,, try to give it to another HUBBer.

Hire this guy to deliver the bike and the box to DHL ,, ca. USD 250,,,you ride in the truck,,, DHL does the packing and customs. You take the bus to passenger terminal and fly out ,,,

Again call Alaska and Korean air. They bring fish from Alaska to Korea , goes back light.

The new Vladivostok international airport is due for it's first flight on June 1st, i cannot believe an investment of this magnitude will not increase the freight traffic aswell as the size of the aircraft, so there maybe hope to freight a motorbike out of there.

We do the same - maybe its idea to cooperate?
 
Hi there.
Just letting you know that we (2 BMW R1200GSA bikes) are searching similar solution:
First we tried to find direct way from Vladivostok to Anchorage, but it seems much easier to go via South Korea.
We plan to arrive to Vladivostok on 15th of july 2012 and take a ferry to Korea. Then ship the bikes somehow to Anchorage, Alaska.
We are not in a hurry and plan to restart riding in America at the end of August 2012.
Sharing a container is an option ... or maybe its cheaper to transport them by DHL, Air Korea or Alaskan...
Please let us know, what options have you found most reasonable.

seouljoe 27 Mar 2012 13:12

Vlad / Korea to Alaska
 
A Korean freighter forwarder is working on the air cargo from Vlad or Seoul to Alaska ,, should have answer in a few days. Will let you know.

I will also be mid of July with my F800GS in Vlad. Ferry to South Korea goes on Wendsday. So if you arrive on 15th we can take the ferry on 18th.
I wait for the answer from DHL when the flights will go. I want to be in Anchorage latest on 29th.
Would be great to meet you and to take the ferry and the transport together.
Will you also take the Amor Highway? I will come from Mongolia to Ulan Ude and then to Vlad.

Thats sounds interessting. I am looking forward for it.
At the moment it looks like that DHL is the best option. They will do all the paperwork and the transport. I just have to give them my bike in Seoul and will get it back in Anchorage, no work for me.
