Understanding Roro Shipping Costs

RoRo car shipping is typically one of the most efficient and cost-effective methods to ship cars overseas when compared with different container shipping methods. However, the costs would vary based on several other factors such as the shipping distance and the weight of the vehicle, as well as any special services or handling that are required. A.E.S. Inc. has streamlined the RoRo shipping process over the years which makes the pricing pretty straightforward and consistent.
Weight / Measurement (W/M): Typically RoRo shipping carriers base the rate on either the weight of shipment or CBM (Cubic Meters), whichever is greater. Therefore, the cost is based on the Cargo density equation i.e. light cargo is charged based on the CBM.
Distance: Evidently, more distance equates to higher shipping costs. Also, shipping to destinations that are not easily accessible may increase pricing.
Carrier Charges: These charges can be OTHC (Origin Terminal Handling Charges), Bill of Lading, BAF (Bunker Adjustment Factor or Fuel Scale Charge), LSL (Low Sulphur Surcharge) and others.
Import / Export: RoRo shipping involve customs clearance fees and related charges for both import and export , also additional local handling fees if required.

It can be cars, trucks, trailers, or any platform vehicles, such as a self-propelled unit. The vehicles are secured to the deck while shipping with lading to ensure safe transit.

The modern day RoRo shipping vessels are highly elaborate and built with advanced engineering techniques. Some of the larger RoRo vessels are about 860 feet long and can accommodate about 6,000 cars per sailing.

Yes, RoRo shipping is very safe. Car manufacturers all over the world ship their brand new vehicles on RoRo shipping vessels. The RoRo ships  are like large moving parking buildings where the cars are properly secured to the decks. Most first class international RoRo shipping vessels are climate controlled to keep your cars protected from the elements of weather.

Break bulk shipping is the method of transporting cargo that cannot fit in standard size shipping containers. This method is suitable for oversized cargo that is placed directly on the shipping vessel. The key difference between  break bulk and RoRo shipping is that in RoRo shipping the cargo is wheeled and is driven on to the shipping vessels, whereas in break bulk shipping the cargo is placed with the help of other equipment; such as on shore or off shore cranes.

Almost all major international carriers such as Wallenius Wilhelmsen (WW), ACL/Grimaldi, Hoegh, K-line, Eukor, MOL, NYK, Sallaum offer RoRo shipping services.
