RORO Shipping

RORO: Transporting Large Assets on Specialized Vessels

RORO vessels were specifically designed to handle the transportation of oversized assets. The acronym RORO stands for Roll On Roll Off, indicating the vessel's unique capability to accommodate freight that cannot be contained within standard shipping containers. Originating in the 19th century to facilitate the transportation of trains across waterways, RORO vessels gained prominence in the 1960s with the global expansion of the automotive industry.
