Roll-on / roll-off (RORO)

Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO) is a shipping method for transporting wheeled cargo, such as vehicles, trailers, and containers, onto a special vessel equipped with ramps. The cargo is driven or rolled on and off the vessel, without the need for cranes or other lifting equipment. This method is commonly used for automobiles, heavy equipment, and other wheeled cargo, as it is cost-effective and efficient for shipping large items.
