RORO
ROLL-ON/ROLL-OFF (RORO or RO-RO) ships are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo , such as cars , trucks , semi-trailer trucks , trailers , and railroad cars , that are driven on and off the ship on their own wheels or using a platform vehicle, such as a self-propelled modular transporter . This is in contrast to lift-on/lift-off (LoLo) vessels, which use a crane to load and unload cargo. RORO vessels have either built-in or shore-based ramps that allow the cargo to be efficiently rolled on and off the vessel when in port. While smaller ferries that operate across rivers and other short distances often have built-in ramps, the term RORO is generally reserved for large oceangoing vessels. The ramps and doors may be located in stern , bow or sides, or any combination thereof
