Planning and Shipping of Heavy Machinery

From keeping the Indian government happy to make sure you have the correct import permit; we’ll handle all of the planning and import-export documentation on your behalf.

All UK exports require an EORI (Economic Operator Registration and Identification Number) along with various other rules that, if not organized prior to shipping your heavy machinery, will cause significant delays and increased costs when reaching customs. We can ensure these are all taken care of professionally by Heavylift Group Scotland.

Shipping construction machinery internationally isn’t known as a quick and simple process, so make sure you are giving yourself time, with reasonable deadlines for when you need the heavy machinery in India. To help expedite the process, get the construction equipment in the best condition possible in advance of shipping, breaking it down into the smallest components that it can go, to allow for easier shipping and cheaper costs for your project.

Once your shipment is on its way, you’ll be provided with tracking details by Heavylift Group Scotland so you can monitor the shipment as it goes.

Customs and Quarantine Procedures

The roll-on, roll-off (RORO) process suggests that your construction machinery will simply roll onto a ship at its origin and roll off at its destination. There are many logistical steps along the way that complicates the process for an import-export company. If you’re looking for a reliable equipment importer in India that can handle importing from the UK, you’ve come to the right place.

Strict customs and quarantine measures from the Indian government will ensure your cargo has a rigorous checklist to comply with before it is released to you. As your customs broker, we ensure that all strict biosecurity measures can be easily addressed, and you’ll be informed along the way about your cargo status as it passes these security checks.

How Long Does It Take to Ship Heavy Machinery from UK to India?

Transit times from the UK to India via sea freight ranges from 21 to 35 days depending on the departure and arrival port, as well as the vessel that your shipment will be on. Our export-import department will give you an example of the length of our shipping times for importing heavy machinery to India.
