We can arrange to transport freight using roll-on roll-off or load-on/load-off (LoLo) methods for shipping both rolling and large or bulky project freight.

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 them to be ‘rolled’ into the cargo bays of the ship.

RoRo shipping is usually the safest and least expensive way to handle wheeled oversized items or special project cargo.

Roll On Roll Off Shipping


Lift-on/Lift-off is another method for handling larger or oversized cargo.  LoLo ships, sometimes referred to as multi-purpose ships, are vessels with onboard cranes that are used to load and unload cargo. LoLo vessels can operate from docks or ports without dockside handling equipment.
