Title: Car shipments to Suriname for “The Great Amazon Adventure”

4 Seas International Shipping Inc. is one of the freight forwarders involved in shipping
cars to Suriname for the Amazon Rally. One Container with a 1991 Toyota Land
Cruiser was loaded at their warehouse facility in Miami, Florida. The container departed
from Port Everglades on September 13, 2016 and arrived as scheduled in Paramaribo
on September 24.

After completing the customs formalities, the vehicle was unloaded on September 27 in
due time for the Rally.

The Amazon Adventure starts on October 7 in Paramaribo and will last 24 days.
Suriname is the smallest country in South America and Dutch is spoken by 60% of the
population as a mother tongue.

French Guiana is the
next stop on the journey.
The country is a
department of France
and the official language

for the European

The Rally continues to
Brazil with its wonderful

Amazon National
Reserve exploring
nature. The final stop will be Peru with a visit to Machu Picchu, one of the 7 Wonders of
the World.

Bespoke Rallies in the U.K. is the organizer of this fascinating event. They offer

4 Seas International Shipping is specialized in shipping cars from the U.S. to any
destination across the globe and they distinguish between Container and Ro/Ro

“Most customers prefer this option when it comes to the transportation of classic,
antique or high value vehicles. It also allows the shipper to leave personal effects, car
parts or any other items in the car at no extra charge” said Yasmin Stover, Vice
President of 4 Seas International. Professional warehouse personnel securely block,
brace and tie down the vehicles to prevent them from moving during transportation.
Vehicles such as trucks, buses, campers and self-propelled agricultural equipment do
not fit into containers and have to be shipped Ro/Ro . They are driven onto the vessel
and stored below deck to prevent exposure from the elements. Jens Boerner, Logistics
Manager at 4 Seas International Shipping adds “this service does not allow anything
inside the vehicles except for one car jack and one spare tire”.
