RO/RO SHIPPING

 

What is RO/RO? It is a term for roll-on roll-off cargo which is driven on and off a vessel. RO/RO cargo consists of items such as tractors, buses and trucks, or oversized cargo loaded on special flatbed, mafi or lowboy trailers. New or used automobiles that are transported by ship are often moved on a large type of RO/RO called a Pure Car Carrier (PCC) or Pure Car Truck Carrier (PCTC).
