International RoRo Car Shipping

Roll On Roll Off (RORO) is the easiest and cheapest way for transporting your car. RORO shipping is used by leading car manufacturers for shipping vehicles. This process of shipping is simple and fast.
Vehicles are driven on to the ship and are secured inside the car decks where they are safe, clean and dry. It is a specially designed vessel to carry wheeled and tracked cargo like trucks, cars, trailers and construction machines. It has more than one ramp at bow or sides for more flexibility at different berthing conditions.

Types of RORO Ships:
1. Ropax (roll on/roll off passenger): Ropax vessels facilitate the passengers to travel with their cars.
2. ConRo: This vessel combines roro and container services. It has cellular container slots on the top deck and vehicles of heavy machinery on the lower decks.
3. Rolo (roll-on / lift-off): It is a hybrid vessel with ramp for rolling cargo and crane for static units.
4. Car carriers: Car carriers are designed to carry new automobiles at huge quantities. They can also be described as floating autoparks ocean passing service for thousands of cars on single sailing.

Advantages of RORO Shipping:
• Risk of vehicle damage is less during loading and unloading. Damage mostly occurs during crane operations and RORO shipping eliminates the risk by not using the crane.
• Cost of loading and unloading is less compared to LO/LO (lift-on/lift-off) shipping which uses cranes.
• There is no need for disconnecting the cargo.
• Easy lashing and security is assured.
• Goods are handled gently and protected from outside influences.
