What transport methods to ship your vehicles to Canada?

RORO is the most common and convenient method for transporting vehicles. There are three other options that exist to ship cars, motorcycles, trucks and other vehicles internationally.


Roll-on Roll-off car shipping is the easiest and cheapest way to ship a vehicle to Canada. Because of its efficiency, RORO shipping is the most popular method for car companies as well as exporters and importers of vehicles and heavy equipment (mining, construction,agriculture,etc).
When you use RORO transportation, your vehicle is simply driven directly onto a specific RORO vessel using its own power or a self-propelled modular transporter.
RORO transport is convenient and involves minimal lifting, ensuring a safe shipping process. Simply drive on at the original location and off at the final destination. There are no expensive haulage and container costs, and normally port and customs procedures are not too complex or time-consuming.
Thanks to our network of RORO carriers, we are amongst the best roro shipping companies. Our RORO shipping services to Canada are available from ports all around the world.
With roro shipping, size simply doesn’t matter. Our experts are able to handle all type of vehicles from small units like personal cars to larger units such as industrial trucks.


LOLO stands for lift on/lift off and is an open air service. LOLO transport is a good alternative to RORO when shipping inoperable large vehicles and equipment, such as yachts, that may not fit on a trailer.
LO-LO transport is a cost-efficient option as vehicles do not have to be driven onto the transporting vessel. It offers also the advantage of being available to and from any port in the world.
LOLO vessels are equipped with cranes that assist in the lifting (for on-loading and off-loading purposes) of the vehicle or equipment. LOLO vessels have a larger container capacity than RORO and container vessels. This allows for more cargo transportation.
However, LOLO shipping is slower and makes it a bit more complex to prepare than RORO. While RORO shipping services offer vehicle transportation by driving them on and off the ship, with LOLO you won’t be able to do so. If you are not in a rush to get your car shipped to Canada, LOLO is an interesting alternative. If you have strict deadlines then RORO will remain your best solution.


Container shipping is the most common alternative to RORO to ship a car to Canada. Shipping your vehicle by container remains the safest form of international transport as your cargo is enclosed during all the shipping process. If you are shipping a luxury car, container shipping is the perfect option. However, cost is a little more elevated than RORO shipping rates.
Container car shipping to Canada is a great option for most vehicle types, provided they fit into the ocean container alternatives: 8 feet wide x 8 feet high x 20 feet to 40 feet long.
Container is also the best solution to ship your car overseas, if you plan to relocate to another country. Along with your vehicle, you can easily load your household goods and personal items inside the container, as there is usually plenty of extra space. On the contrary, with the Roll-On Roll-Off services all of your personal property must be removed from your vehicle and shipped using other methods.


Flat Racks are specific open top platforms where the vehicle is secured onto a metal frame before it is placed atop the water vessel. Flat rack containers come in 20' and 40' ft lengths.
Do you need to ship your trailer or maybe your construction or agriculture equipment? Flat Rack is a frequently used shipping solution to transport all sorts of vehicles with unusual dimensions such as heavy industrial vehicles, yachts, oversized trucks, vehicles on tracks and machinery.
