There are many challenges that come with importing a used car to Zambia, from finding the right car to making sure the shipping process goes smoothly. Unfortunately, as a landlocked nation in the southern region of Africa, Zambia happens to have one of the highest costs of importation due to lack of direct access to ports.
Distance is also another cost factor, as the nearest port is Dar es Salaam in Tanzania while other options are in Mozambique, Durban in South Africa, and Namibia through Walvis Bay. With the varying costs between each, it’s important to prepare and calculate taxes and duty before deciding to buy a car online.
