RoRo

  Glossary

Better known as ‘Roll on Roll off’ is a phrase used to describe the method of loading vehicles onto the vessel for shipping. Unlike container shipping, vehicles are driven onto the vessel at the origin and destination. In some respects, it can be cheaper and faster when compared to container shipping.

Your vehicle is taken to the port and it awaits loading onto the vessel that will be shipping it.

Then the vehicles are simply driven onto the RoRo vessel – ready to set sail.

You cannot bring personal possesions and from nearly every country – your vehicle must be cleaned before loading it onto the vessel.

A minimal amount of fuel is required to drive the vehicle onto the RoRo vessel and manoeuvring when it is unloaded at the destination port – but no more.
