If you are shipping RO RO to Port Lagos, Cotonou and Tema the next vessel sailing from Port Tilbury is the Grande Tema, details below.
We have regular scheduled RO RO sailings using specialist vessels operating from UK ports to Ports worldwide. The term RO RO, Roll On Roll Off, comes from the way vehicles are loaded on to and off loaded from the vessel. Using the ships own integral loading ramps, vehicles are driven on and off the ship at departure Port and destination Port.
Cargo other than vehicles can be shipped on RO RO vessels. Boats and machinery on trailers and heavy plant and machines that run on tracks or tyres can be shipped on these vessels.
Vehicles, cargo shipped on RO RO vessels are loaded lashed and secured on secure fittings that are situated on every deck.
RO RO services are available from several Ports in the UK including Southampton, Sheerness, Bristol, Tilbury, Newcastle upon Tyne and Killingholme and Immingham. Once you make a booking, a standard shipping note is issued which must accompany the vehicle to port. Port Tilbury also requires a copy of the UK Customs Entry and a label printing. Whichever Port your vehicle is being shipped from you will be given the appropriate paperwork. When you deliver the vehicle the paperwork identifies the booking for the Port staff. They will sign your copy of the standard shipping note so you have proof of delivery.
RO RO car shipping vessels are used by the largest manufacturers of cars worldwide such as Mercedes, BMW and Audi. The sheer size of the vessel enables rates to be usually far more competitive than shipping a car in a container.
