What Is RoRo Shipping?
RoRo shipping ports in USA refers to roll-on and the roll-off. This method of shipping involves transporting cars that move in the vessel’s cargo hold. However, this type of ocean freight isn’t quite as secure as containerized shipping since your vehicle could be exposed to weather conditions.

RoRo prices may increase due to global economic conditions and the global congestion at ports and the price of fuel can cause unexpected increases. We expect another small increase in April. So keep an eye out for future announcements.
