Schumacher Cargo Logistics is celebrating our website’s 21st anniversary. Back in 1998, Schumacher jumped into the digital world and created our website. We’ve had the chance to try many site designs over those years. Today, we’ll take a look back at all of these designs from our long history on the web. Also, stay until the end for a look at our newest design.
A Trip Back to 1998
After beginning business in 1977, we launched the first version of the website in 1998. Eventually, the creation of this website would lead the way for the future changes and designs. Interestingly enough, most of the main services are the same, although there have been many improvements over the last 21 years.
The Designs of the Early 2000s
Throughout the 2000’s, SCL made many changes in both location and website. The framework for the website used today was created during this time.These changes added many features to the site, allowing users to get more information for their shipments. Features like live chat, tracking, and online payments were added to further increase convenience for people. International shipping can seem daunting if never done before, so we needed to make sure people were properly informed. These websites accomplished their goals and users appreciated the clarity.
Moving to the Current Design
With our current design, we’ve been using the present framework since 2011. There is a vast amount of information built over the last 21 years. Navigation consists of both drop down and flyout menus in order to direct users to the right info. In this layout, users have access to tons of information really quickly. For the last 8 years we’ve used this design framework, and in 2019 we’re redesigning it.
New Site Design in 2019
Once the website launches, you’ll actually be reading this blog in the new design.
Our new design consolidates the large volume of information from the last 21 years and make it easier to navigate. Rather than showing tons of menus, we wanted users to be able to navigate without being overwhelmed. Each commodity has its own mega menu so users can get the relevant information for their particular shipment. Overall, the user experience should create a simple and clearer browsing session.

After 40 years of shipping cars overseas at Schumacher Cargo, we know that international car sales are much easier than you might think.
Cars from the United States are favorable overseas; they’re generally in better shape than what you’d find in other countries. Classic American cars are especially popular abroad because it’s easier to find these vehicles through a private seller in the States than in, say for example, Germany.
We frequently ship classic American cars overseas, usually after they sell at auction or through private parties, with our specialized service Schumacher Secure. The Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette and Dodge Charger are the most popular classics exported to Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
International Car Sales
You may be able to make a nice profit selling your car to a foreign buyer, especially a classic car in good condition.
Posting your car online makes it easy for interested buyers to find it. Millions of people around the world use these websites for buying and selling American cars overseas.
Be sure to include plenty of detailed photos and the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) in your listing. For classic cars, use our handy inspection checklist to answer all your buyer’s questions ahead of time.
The buyer should pay via a trusted wire transfer service. A cashier’s check works, too, but it needs to be from a reputable domestic bank. Get the full payment before you release the car, otherwise there’s a chance you’ll never receive it all.
How to Ship a Car Overseas
After you and your buyer have settled the deal, it’s time to get your car from Point A to Point B. Schumacher Cargo Logistics is fully licensed and bonded and a world-class expert in shipping cars overseas to popular destinations in Europe, Asia, Oceana and the Middle East.
The cost to ship a car overseas depends on the vehicle’s starting location, final destination, shipping method and any extra details. You can tailor these details to your, or your buyer’s, specifications.
For extra convenience, you can get door-to-door delivery service which includes ocean transport to the destination port. Once it arrives, our overseas agents can contact a local service to deliver the vehicle to its new home.
No matter which shipping method you choose, our services always include 24/7 online tracking and U.S. customs clearance.
