Service Change Alert for Shipping Cars Overseas to Australia and New Zealand
Dealers and individuals engaged in shipping cars to Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) should prepare for expected changes in shipping routes from the US West Coast to ports down under. These changes are due to Pacific International's (PIL) decision to shut down its service to ANZ. Since Aussie demand for classic cars remains strong, those shipping to Australia may wish to take special notice of this situation. See our top tips for shipping cars overseas to Australia.

PIL's Impact on Shipping Cars Internationally
West Coast Shipping (WCS) does not anticipate any delays due to PIL's decision, although unfortunately, there will be less space available to these markets. With less container space, WCS anticipates increases in international shipping rates to these destinations and the company is advising its customers to plan for cost adjustments in the near future. In the interim, WCS is monitoring the situation and will continue to keep customers up-to-date.
