Ocean Transport Methods

Roll-On / Roll-Off: Roll-On/Roll-Off, also known as RO/RO, is often the least expensive and most efficient method of overseas vehicle shipping. Your vehicle is driven directly into the ship’s hold and is secured inside the car deck. This method does not work for vehicles that do not run and drive, as your vehicle must be able to roll into the ship’s hold. With RO/RO you cannot transport other goods with the vehicle.

Shipping Containers: When shipping your vehicle in a Shipping Container, it is loaded, strapped-down and secured inside either a 20-foot or 40-foot cargo container. An advantage of container shipping is that the customers are allowed to ship other items with the vehicle and the vehicle does not need to run and drive.
