We make shipping to Libya an easy, painless process, regardless of the size of the purchase. It makes no difference whether you’re shipping one car or a large group of automobiles. We’ve helped happy customers all over the country successfully transport their valuables vehicles into the country.
There are a few documents you’ll need to get the shipping process started. These include:
● The original BOS (Bill of Sale) for each vehicle or for the group
● The original car title or registration for any vehicle built in 1969 or earlier
● A lien release if there’s a lien present on the title. Otherwise, the car should be lien-free.
We can assist in purchasing cars at auction around the U.S. and then have them transported to our warehouse intact or disassembled for transport. We then truck your vehicles to the proper port and either load them into a container or roll them directly onto the shipping vessel. We ship to all Libyan ports and can arrange to have your vehicle delivered to any location in the country once it arrives.

Container shipping can either be shared (consolidated) or exclusive (full cargo load). Consolidated shipping combines multiple shipments into one container. Your car will be placed in a container with other cars, and possibly other freight. This saves you money but can extend service times. FCL shipping is more expensive, but you have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your vehicle isn’t sharing space with other freight.
Regardless of the option you choose, we can arrange to have your car transported from its point of purchase to one of our convenient warehouses. From there it’s either loaded into its own container and trucked to the port of departure or its brought to the port for inclusion in an existing container shipment. The container is then loaded onto the ship, bound for its delivery port.
RORO (Roll On Roll Off) is the simplest and cheapest method of shipping for vehicles. Vehicles are driven directly onto the RORO vessel and secured to the car decks. They are securely inside the vessel, wind-and-watertight. It is important to note that you cannot ship personal effects using this method, but spare tire and factory fitted accessories are allowed. Ideal for shipping car, motorcycle, truck, specialty vehicle, equipment and boat.
When you travel internationally, we all know that it is essential to get your documents right. International shipping is no different. Libya customs and duty rules can be complex depending on the contents of your shipment. Trust MTL for customs clearance, we’ve compiled Libya customs laws in an easy to follow format.
Taxation: The taxation for a Libya depends on the local GST/VAT, as well as the item category and its declared value.
The tax & duty threshold is the amount at which a person begins paying taxes based on the declared value of an item.
We help clients arrange for the purchase of used cars at auction houses around the country. If you’re an exporter or a member of the public that’s purchased used vehicles from a wholesale auction house like IAAI, Manheim or Copart, we can help facilitate the transfer of your vehicles to our warehouse.
We have warehouses servicing the largest ports in the U.S., including ports in New York, Savannah, and Los Angeles, among many others. We have the infrastructure and the experience to move your vehicle from wherever it’s purchased to your location in Libya as efficiently and as cost-effectively as possible.
The Port of Al Khums is a primary point of entry for all types of freight into Libya. It’s a smaller but highly serviceable port with berths available for nine medium-sized transport vessels.
We commonly bring vehicles into Libya through Al Khums for customers located in the westerly regions of the country. Cars that are loaded into containers must be lifted off the ship and unpacked before being loaded onto a truck. Roll-on/roll-off vehicles are simply rolled off the ship and onto a transport vehicle.
The Port of Benghazi is a major seaport located within the Gulf of Sidra. It handles traffic from around the globe. Numerous processing industries are located within the bounds of the port. It also hosts one of the world’s largest water desalinization plants.
Benghazi is a larger port than Al Khums and can handle larger vessels, but our shipping process is the same regardless of entry port. We monitor your shipment at all points, from purchase to warehouse, warehouse to port, in transit, back into port and throughout the rest of its journey. We make absolutely certain your vehicles arrive in pristine condition so that you don’t need to worry.
The city of Misrata, home to 281,000 residents, has been called the trade capital of Libya, and the Port of Misrata is an integral part of the economy. On average, the port sees about 200 vessels per year and is a hub for all manner of freight coming into the country.
Opting for roll-on/roll-off service will save you the most money and provide reliable dates or departure, as your shipment isn’t dependent on container space. Container shipping takes a bit more time and costs more, but offers your vehicle maximum protection and is suggested for particularly valuable purchases.
