Vehicle Shipping Services for Military Personnel

personal vehicle transport for military members

Schumacher Cargo has a long standing relationship with the US armed forces overseas. We have shipped thousands of vehicles to military bases across Europe and the majority of the vehicles we ship for military personnel are done so in a shared container service.

The primary port of entry that we ship into is the large port of Bremerhaven. This is the main port of entry into Germany and we can transport your vehicle to any inland destination city from here.

Stuttgart, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Kaiserslautern, Berlin, Munich, and Mannheim are the main destinations we cover. You can have a complete "door to door" service if you wish.

We also ship military POVs to most active posts around the world including the UK, Italy, France and many more.

To all personnel, we appreciate your efforts in peacekeeping abroad and admire your loyalty to defend your country.

With this in mind, we'd like to say thank you by offering active service personnel a discount on shipments as part of our vehicle shipping services for military members.

*Discount applies to ocean freight rates only. Does not apply to domestic transport here in the US, at destination or for shipments to Hawaii. Ask your salesperson for more information.

Ask your salesperson for more details when making the booking. This is our way of saying thank you for all that you do.

We can pick up your car from any state in the US, and store it in our warehouse until ready to ship. Your vehicle will be parked indoors within our facility.

What We Need to Ship Your Vehicle

We know that the Military will ship your first car free of charge. So to ship your second private car as part of the military, you must provide the following:

  • Copy of your orders
  • Your original title, if there is no lien on the title at time of shipping
  • If you have a lien, you must get a notarized letter of release from the financial institution who is the current lien holder, along with 3 notarized copies of the front and back of the title.
  • A notarized bill of sale, if you have recently purchased the car
  • A copy of your passport picture page

For more individual information about the requirements for each port, please don't hesitate to ask your salesperson.
