What is RORO shipping?

"Roll-On/Roll-Off" refers to a combination of ground and sea transport, where vehicles or cargo are driven on and off a ferry ship. It is a time-tested method with origins dating back as early as 1833.

RORO ships are large ocean-going vessels, specifically designed to carry cargo on wheels, such as personal vehicles, utility vehicles, and heavy equipment. The cargo is rolled on and off the RORO vessel on their own power or using a platform vehicle, such as a modular transporter. This is in contrast to Lift-On/Lift-Off (LO/LO) vessels, which use a crane to load and unload cargo.

RORO vessels have either built-in or shore-based ramps that allow the cargo to be rolled on and off the ship. The ramps and doors may be located in stern, bow or sides, or any combination thereof.

What are the advantages of RORO?

Roll-on Roll-off is the cheapest and safest way to transport vehicles and breakbulk cargo to Costa Rica. In the international shipping business, an efficient yet economical service is crucial.

With RORO, your vehicle is simply driven on and off a specific RORO vessel. If the vehicle or cargo is not self-propelled (static cargo) then a modular transporter called a MAFI Trailer can be used.
