With RoRo, the cargo is simply “rolled on” the vessel at the port of loading and “rolled off” the vessel at the overseas destination port. Everything is handled by the port workers. RoRo ships are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as automobiles, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars that are driven on and off the vessel on their own wheels or using a platform vehicle, such as a self-propelled modular transporter.
By far the simplest method of shipping cars is by Ro-Ro vessels. These RoRo vessels are purpose built vessels designed purely for the shipment of cars. Vehicles are driven directly onto RoRo vessels and secured to the car decks. They are secured inside the vessel, wind-and watertight. If you can drive it, we can ship it. Cars are driven into the ship at origin and driven out at the destination port.
It is important to note that you cannot ship personal effects using this method, but spare tire and factory fitted accessories are allowed. 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 and heavy equipment and machinery. The only problem with RoRo has to do with its limited geographical coverage. It is not as all-encompassing as container shipping which can get you pretty much anywhere you want your vehicle to go.
However, our knowledgeable staff will be able to inform you on the availability of RoRo shipping in any country of your choice and advise you as such. We’ll make sure we find the best option that best suit your shipment.
