Roll-on/roll-off (RORO or ro-ro) ships are vessels designed to carry
wheeled cargo such as automobiles, trucks, semi-trailer trucks,trailers
or railroad cars that are driven or towed on and off the ship on their own
This is in contrast to lo-lo (lift-on/lift-off) vessels which use a crane to load
and unload cargo.
RORO vessels have built-in ramps which allow the cargo to be efficiently
“rolled on” and “rolled off” the vessel when in port.
While smaller ferries that operate across rivers and other short distances
often have built-in ramps, the term RORO is generally reserved for larger
The ramps and doors may be stern-only, or bow and stern for quick loading.
The selected agents work together with all major ro/ro shipping lines and
have the expertise of local procedures in order to protect cargo owners
