Vehicle Shipping Methods

Roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) Shipping

RORO (Roll-On/Roll-Off) shipping stands as a specialised transportation method, streamlining the loading and unloading of vehicles and heavy machinery directly onto the carrier vessel through a built-in ramp, ensuring a convenient and efficient transport solution while minimising handling and potential damage risks.

The RORO shipping process involves the utilisation of purpose-built ramps or platforms, enabling vehicles to be driven directly onto the carrier vessel. Once safely aboard, these vehicles are securely fastened in designated areas, ensuring stability and safety throughout the journey.

One of the notable advantages of RORO shipping, which contributes to its widespread popularity, is its simplified loading and unloading process. Unlike other complex methods involving cranes or dismantling, RORO shipping allows vehicles to be driven directly onto the vessel, resulting in significant time savings and minimising the risk of damage.


Vehicle Container Shipping

Dolphin Shipping, offers an exclusive container shipping service, catering to the transportation needs of luxury cars and high-value vehicles. Vehicle Container Shipping provides an added layer of protection, making it an ideal choice for clients seeking enhanced security for their valuable automobiles.

Containers are sealed and safeguarded throughout the journey, mitigating the risk of damage from external elements such as weather conditions or potential accidents.

While Vehicle Container Shipping provides superior protection and peace of mind, it is important to note that it is a premium service and typically carries a higher cost compared to Roll-on/roll-off (RORO) shipping. This premium reflects the additional security measures and dedicated attention given to each vehicle. Whether it's a classic car, a high-end sports car, or an exotic automobile, Dolphin Shipping's Vehicle Container Shipping service provides the peace of mind and assurance that luxury car owners demand.
