RORO

RORO stands for Roll on Roll off and it primarily used when your vehicle, whether it be a car, boat or motorhome needs to transported on the vessels deck for shipment abroad. It is the ideal shipping solution for larger vehicles that cannot fit inside a container. RORO is usually the cheapest and quickest transit, but we prefer to opt for the safety and security that containerized shipping provides when we are shipping classic cars.
