Initially developed in the 19th century for the transport of trains across waterways, RORO became commercially available in Japan in the 1960’s with the globalization of the auto industry. was developed to make shipping large assets as fast and easy as possible.

How does RORO work?

With RORO shipping, your cargo is driven or towed on and off ocean vessels, using built-in ramps that can withstand up to one million pounds. Cargo shipped on RORO vessels can be shipped “as is” with no dismantling required.

Your asset is delivered directly to the port, and picked up directly from the port at your destination. RORO trade routes are focused on specific global regions, so it is often the fastest way to ship large assets, and allows for a faster return on your investment.

We look forward to working with you on your upcoming international RORO shipment. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at, or call 1-407-605-RORO. You can also click on the chat icon on this page to be connected directly with our sales team.
