Without the right resources, equipment, or technology in place, it can be difficult to make heavy freight transportation feasible on your cargo ship. RoRo cargo can include construction equipment, oil and gas equipment, windmills, boating machinery, vehicles and more. If the cargo can roll under its own power or on a specialized cargo trailer, RoRo shipping could be the solution you are looking for. Shipping cargo on RoRo Vessels can help with unique, heavy loading and unloading needs. Ceres Terminals has cultivated successful port and terminal solutions that your shipping company needs to succeed.

What is RoRo Shipping?
RoRo typically refers to “Roll on & Roll off” solutions. This means, with effective RoRo technology and services in place, you can incorporate specially designed heavyweight cargo ships that are able to effectively roll on or roll off any precious cargo from your ship.
Whether utilizing a standard PCTC (Pure Car Truck Carrier) Vessel or another type of vessel with RoRo cargo capabilities, specialized equipment can easily remove your heavyweight cargo without crane lifting it. With these technologies in place, your maritime team can mitigate risks in handling heavy machinery. Typically incidents in the RoRo shipping sector are less catastrophic than in other sectors requiring high lifting and more specialized gear. Measured in lanes and meters, RoRo technology can also be utilized and incorporated in the naval sector to transport important naval freight and machinery.
“Break Bulk Cargo” is a term that refers to non-containerized cargo that is delivered as separate pieces due to the oversize and overweight nature of the shipment. When organizing cargo as “break bulk,” it can often mean that the majority of standard freight containers might not be able to accommodate this size or type of product.

RoRo Shipping: Top Benefits
As one of the main benefits, RoRo shipping allows heavyweight cargo to stay on the ship until reaching the desired destination to be subsequently rolled off the ship. With that in mind, your maritime team can provide safer, more efficient solutions to your heavyweight loading and unloading needs. Avoid crane lifting expensive, dangerous handling equipment and spend less money on accidents, machine damage, or even crane solutions.
Rolling cargo on and off a vessel with RoRo Technology is faster than any other solution. After implementation, many shipping professionals tend to prefer this method — especially in instances where high-value cargo is being transported. As shipping companies begin to invest in faster and more reliable ships, RoRo Technology can provide simpler, seamless solutions for heavyweight cargo with a less sophisticated logistics chain.
Here are some of the cargo areas in which Ceres Terminals Roro technology exceeds:
- Unloading Oversized Cargo
- Discharging Machinery
- Loading High & Heavy Cargo
- Processing Wheeled Vehicles
In order for your products to arrive at their destination in the shortest amount of time and as safely as possible, RoRo Technology and Services offer the best solution.
