Roll-On/Roll-Off shipping, often referred to as RORO shipping, is the safest and most convenient way to transport heavy machinery and equipment abroad. The vehicles or goods are driven onto a RORO vessel using a specialized platform vehicle, secured below deck and driven off upon arrival at its destination. Since cargo is locked and tied down to the deck during the journey, you don’t have to worry about damage caused by excessive movement or calamitous weather. RORO shipping requires less direct handling of the cargo, making it a faster and more cost-effective option than container shipping. It’s often the only viable method of freight transportation for heavy and oversized goods as they may not fit standard containers.
