Ro-Ro transport


Definition

Ro-Ro is the abbreviation of Roll on – Roll off and in addition to that the term for the transshipment and transport of rolling goods i.e. machines and vehicles which could be usually moved on their own wheels.

Advantages

  • The transport is more sustainable in comparison to other transport modes, especially compared to trucks. Furthermore, the environment is relieved enormously. A barge consumes considerably less diesel for 100 tonnes-km and has significantly lower CO2 emissions. The loading is performed gently for the item (usually rolling). The damage rate tends to 0%.
  • New vehicles only drive short distances
  • Rolling material has lower signs of utilization
  • Avoidance of weekend driving bans
  • Relief of deployment concerning social and steering legislations
  • Traffic jams and driving bans are circumvented, for example 84 truck trailers correspond to a loading length of approximately 1,100 m, on a motorway this would be a length of more than 3 km
  • Based upon 100 departures, motorways can be relieved from an equivalent of approximately 17,000 trucks
  • Rising shortage of drivers in the truck sector can also be counteracted
