What is RORO shipping
RoRo ships are designed to carry wheeled and tracked machinery that are driven on and off the ship on their own tracks or using a platform vehicle such as a self-propelled modular transporter. This is in contrast to lift-on/lift-off (LoLo) vessels, which use a crane to load and unload cargo.
RORO vessels have either built-in or shore-based ramps that allow the piling rig to be efficiently rolled on and off the vessel when in port. Vehicles are either driven or towed on to the vessel via a ramp by fully qualified vehicle handlers, called Stevedores. They are professionally trained drivers that will ensure that your piling rig is driven safely on and off the vessel at each end. Once the vehicles are onboard the vessel, the piling rig will be strapped to various lashing points. These straps are checked throughout the voyage by professional cargo handlers onboard and are tightened up throughout its voyage if required. This will then ensure a safe delivery without damage into the overseas port.
Roll on Roll off Shipping is the simplest and most economical method of shipping Piling rigs bigger than 12m long, 2.3m wide or over 30000kgs.
RORO offers the shipper a simpler process by not requiring lashing like container shipping and usually port and customs procedures are less complex, making it not only more efficient but also more economical.
