You might want to investigate Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (WWL). They actually own ships and port facilities and move cars from the US East Coast to Europe ports, including Gothenburg, SE. Subaru uses them to ship cars from its plant in Lafayette, IN to Europe via the Port of Baltimore and WWL has an office there in Lafayette. An ideal situation would be to drop your car off at the Subaru plant in IN and it gets shipped to the Port of Baltimore via train with a bunch of new Subaru Tribecas. I wouldn't hold my breath on that, though. It is possible that WWL can recommend a carrier that can safely move your car from Sioux City to one of their port facilities on the East Coast.

Here are some WWL links.

The US DoD is, by far, the largest customer which needs to arrange shipment of POVs out of the US. You might want to try and figure out who the DoD uses as contractors.
