RORO Ships

Cargo-Friendly RORO Transport
Cargo-Friendly RORO Transport
All containers are mounted on a chassis and stowed so that they stay secure and do not collide with other containers. The cargo hold is arranged like an indoor parking lot, which offers the great advantage of protecting the containers against waves during the voyage. Because all cargo is placed in the hold, any risk of damage is significantly reduced.
On-Board Environment
On-Board Environment
There are 120 x 220V power outlets (along the domestic routes) and 68 x 440V (along the international routes) on board, which allow us to transport reefer containers. RKK Line is also able to store and manage chilled and frozen cargo. In addition, we strive to maintain cargo quality by checking container internal temperatures at 8-hour intervals after departure as well as during the voyage.

Containers & Equipment

RKK Line has ample numbers and types of containers, chassis and other transport equipment that we can tailor to your shipping needs. We even handle reefer containers for chilled and frozen cargo.
