This is a monster of a truck here in the U.S and I was wondering what your thoughts would be if this would be shipped off to Somalia. Can port authority be trusted? Same with checkpoint officers?

Looking to ship this off when it comes out inshallah.
 
the government is bunch of thieves if what i heard is true. i heard that if you are importing a car or any type of vehicle such as construction or agricultures machines, the tariff is sometimes 100% of the price of the item.

you gonna get robbed
Probably, but going to get shipped off to Puntland. My uncle shipped some western machines for a factory and he got it fully in tact. Just the electricity power in Somalia was too high so the machines broke lol.

Other than high import costs... It would be difficult to keep this beast maintained.

All the parts need to be also imported.

If you're shipping it to Puntland then you're safe and that's the smartest decision to make.

I would like an answer to this as well. What is the process?

First step is sending to Dubai, not many shipping companies do direct to Bosasso. Second step is finding qaraabo either in Somalia or Dubai that can organise the shipping to Somalia. Third step is making sure that your qaraabo have organised the transport straight from Bosasso as well as a place to store it.

I have imported stuff to Bosasso a few times, never had it stolen but you need to know people just in case.

I'm waiting for more affordable electric cars to ship off to somalia. Some nice electric suvs would be great to explore the mountain ranges of sanaag.

Besides with all the wind and solar power somalia should become a mass electric car manufacturing giant. Might even invest in it myself.
