roro car shipping

Roro car shipping

RORO overseas shipping is a very popular way of transporting cargo to other countries. The idea was created and developed by the Japanese car manufacturers to ship their cars to USA and Europe in a fast and efficient manner by using specialized ships called “vehicle carriers”.

Nowadays RORO carriers can handle not just cars but all types of motorized, rolling and even static cargo: trucks, boats, buses, motor homes, travel trailers, tractors, excavators, cranes, and other high & heavy equipment and machinery.

International RORO shipping is popular with exporters and importers mainly for 2 reasons: cost and efficiency.

Roro shipping

RoRo allows your products to roll on and off the vessel, as opposed to being lifted onboard using cranes. Self-propelled products, such as cars and tractors, roll on and off the vessel on their own wheels. Products that are not self-propelled are placed on handling equipment with wheels in the terminal to be rolled on and off the vessel. Your product thus remains on the handling equipment for the entire sea voyage.


Roll-on/Roll-off vs Container Shipping

With RoRo, your car or RV is driven right onto the vessel, where it is firmly secured to the ship deck. The cars are held inside the ship, keeping them safe from the elements and the sea. As the term implies, container shipping involves storing your car or motorcycle in a container.
