What is RORO?
RORO is short for Roll-On, Roll-Off. The RO/RO idea was an innovative one that evolved
from ferries and now is revolutionizing the transport industry worldwide Overdimensionnal
self-propelled/ motorized ( on wheels: trucks, construction equipment, cars, etc. ) cargo
is rolled on to this special vessel and then simply rolled-off at destination port.This
very simple way of handling your oversized cargo is the safest and cheapest way. Nothing
else comes close.
Why? The RORO Operation, contrary to the containerized one,
generally avoids all dismantling and reassembly costs and damages. Furthermore,
there is no danger of water damage since the cargo is always secured in the vessel's
garage-like decks for the entire voyage. These special vessels also carry non-motorized
vehicles or non-roadworthy vehicles. If it's not on wheels, it can be put on wheels
with the use of specialized equipment.
Each week, RORO vessels sail around the world to major RORO ready ports, and thanks to a network
