What is RoRo?2020-02-28T06:36:08+00:00
Need to ship your vehicle overseas and you have heard about RoRo, but not sure that really means and you need to know if that could be an option for you.
Well in very simple terms, what RoRo means is Roll on Roll Off, which basically means if the car is drivable, it can be driven to the departing port and driven off at the destination port.
In most cases this method is more economic since you don’t have to pay for a tow truck to and from the ports
