Roll-on/roll-off (RORO or ro-ro) ships are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as cars, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars, that are driven on and off the ship on their own wheels or using a platform vehicle, such as a self-propelled modular transporter. This is in contrast to lift-on/lift-off (LoLo) vessels, which use a crane to load and unload cargo.

What’s the Difference Between RoRo and Container Shipping?

RoRo essentially means your cargo is rolled onto the ship or ferry at the departure port and then off again at the destination port. The ships and ferries have specially constructed ramps and cargo bays to facilitate this.

All You Need to Know About RoRo

Our RoRo shipping options are fast, reliable, and safe, plus you can ship vehicles and other wheeled cargo to almost any destination. There are two important things to remember about RoRo shipping, however.

Firstly, you should make sure you have adequate insurance cover just like you would for other forms of freight. Secondly, you can’t include personal belongings with a vehicle that is being shipped using the RoRo method. If you need to include personal belongings, you should consider container shipping instead.

RoRo benefits

RoRo is the simplest way of shipping most cargo on wheels, including passenger vehicles, trucks, and vans. As it is the simplest, it is usually the cheapest too.

One of the ways costs are kept low with RoRo is you don’t need to prepare the cargo in the same way you need to if you are shipping in a container. When using container shipping, the cargo needs to be packed in the container, transported, and/or stored, all of which adds to your overall costs.

Because of the points mentioned above, RoRo shipping is the faster option.

When Should You Use RoRo services?

When you want to ship a vehicle or other type of cargo that has wheels
When you don’t need to include personal or additional items with the vehicle
If you want a simple and fast option
When you want to keep costs low
