Looking for transportation of cars, trucks, earthmoving- and road construction equipment, mobile cranes, trailers, buses, plant equipment or machinery? Robert World Wide Shipping is specialized in world wide RO/RO logistics services.
The history of commercial roll on/roll off shipping companies dates back to the 1950s. Large scale usage took off in the ’70s when the market for importing and exporting cars increased rapidly. Simultaneously, international heavy industries discovered the advantages of being able to transport their rolling material worldwide using roll on/roll off vessels.
RO/RO (roll-on/roll-off) shipments consist primarily of shipping single or multiple vehicles. A RO/RO ship is specifically designed to accommodate mechanized cargo. The design allows cargo to be driven on- and off the ship by using her ramp. In addition, special trailers (mafi’s) are used to tow static cargo onboard that is stowed in the cargo area. Each type of ship and cargo presents different challenges to cargo handling when moving, arranging and fitting the cargo into the vessel.
Thanks to our outstanding working relationship with most of the worldwide carriers or operators Robert World Wide Shipping Ltd. offers safe international roll on/roll off shipping services as well as container transport, heavy lift and conventional/breakbulk.
