RORO is an acronym for ROLL-ON/ROLL-OFF shipping method; this service is used mainly for its simplicity and fast-handling cargo operations.
How it works: All type of wheeled cargo such as automobiles, trucks; trailers etc are driven on and off the ship. These ships are designed to load this type of self-propelled, towable or forklift cargo.
Majority of countries offer the full RORO bouquet of services, but some destinations offer only RORO towable and forklift service for an additional charge. Please note, however, this does not include ocean insurance.
