As said, they're enclosed to reduce transportation damage claims from environmental, theft and vandalism causes.

Toyota doesn't use shipping containers to US ports. They have a fleet of ro-ro ships sized to transit the Panama Canal.
Don't know how they are shipping from Germany though. Won't be the standard Toyota Transport ships.

Here's how they get them from Portland to Anchorage, about the same distance from Zeebrugge to Baltimore.



Maybe they could backhaul a Maru loaded with Supras and Yaris with stops down the East Coast and the Caribbean, through the Panama Canal to West Coast ports and back to Japan loaded with Camrys with stops in Hawaii and Guam but yeah, that's a lot of ship to transport a handful of cars, so unlikely.

That is a coastal barge. It would be doomed crossing the north Atlantic.

Thought it was obvious satire but of course.

Right, written tongue in cheek.
LOL I am never too sure anymore!

Because as said several times already, Toyota vehicles transported between POE's and dealerships are uncovered. Factory to POE's and distribution yards are covered.

Lexus covers them though. I caught sight of a transporter with the Lexus logo on the tarp-like sides.

I live relatively near the Port of Jacksonville FL. I see auto transports on I95 everyday taking cars to locations in the SE US. All the Lexus cars travel in those canvas side transports with the Lexus logo all over them. However, the BMWs travel on open transporters and are only protected by some self adhesive plastic squares on the cars themselves.

Remember. the Supra is a BMW!


Edit: Annnnd just when I say that, I see a car hauler heading south from Jacksonville loaded with Lexus cars and it was not covered. The back car was a LC500 and it just had those self adhesive plastics on it too. So much for any manufacturer giving special care. At least the Lambos and Ferrari are all under cover.
