Roll On Roll Off (RORO) - Oversized Cargo

MOVING OVERSIZED 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 moves a variety of oversize cargo using RORO or Lo/Lo methods as it would be time-consuming and cost-prohibitive to disassemble them for shipping and reassemble them on arrival.

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 over-sized 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. 

 
BGI Worldwide Logistics understands how to maximize the relationships it has with RORO and Lo/Lo carriers to quickly move oversized or project cargo from one destination to another - here, in the U.S. and worldwide.
