Roll On Roll Off (RORO) Cargo

Roll On Roll Off (RORO) Cargo

RORO and PROJECT CARGO

"RORO" vessels are ships that are specifically designed to handle large wheeled cargo such as

automobiles, trucks, construction machinery, and oversized or bulky items. BGI transports project cargo

using RORO or Lo/Lo methods for shipping both rolling, and large or bulky project freight as it would be

time-consuming and cost-prohibitive to disassemble and crate equipment for shipping and then reassemble

it upon arrival to the destination.

RORO vessels have built-in ramps that allow the rolling cargo to be driven or rolled on and off the

vessel when in port. These ships pull up to a dock and lower a ramp allowing to be ‘rolled’ into the cargo

bays of the ship. Ro/Ro is usually the safest and least expensive way to handle an oversized cargo item

or special project cargo.

LIFT-ON / LIFT-OFF (LO/LO)

Lift-on/Lift-off is another method for handling larger or oversized cargo.  Lift-on/Lift-off or Lo/Lo

ships, sometimes referred to as multi-purpose ships, are vessels with onboard cranes that are used

to load and unload cargo. Lift-on/Lift-off vessels can operate from docks or ports without dockside

handling equipment.
