Roll on roll off (RORO) Freight Services

Like sound at a concert, general freight is only noticed when it goes wrong. Partner with the best freight forwarder in the business.

RORO (roll on roll off) shipping is a very efficient way of moving trucks, busses, plant and oversize items between major cities in Australia.

These ships are effectively floating multi-story car parks and are about as pretty as one. However, they are extremely efficient and are only a few days slower than heavy haulage.

We are not limited to moving vehicles or trailers either. We can accept static plant, crates, pipes, boats and aircraft.

Static items can be loaded onto large trailers, called MAFIs, or run onto the ship by forklift.

We’ve moved everything from busses, large elevated work platforms, containers, trucks to laboratories via RORO.

Regularly serviced cities include:

  • Fremantle
  • Melbourne
  • Sydney
  • Townsville
  • Adelaide
  • Brisbane
  • Burnie
  • Darwin
  • Devonport
Our services are available as door to door and port to port. We will take care of the whole process; including Quarantine requirements in WA and Tasmania.

If you have a one-off oversize shipment, or regularly move large vehicles, let us know how we can help.

We offer a full range of services, from Economy, General, Express through to Premium.

Our Economy service is favoured by most customers for it’s cost effectiveness, but it also comes with full respect for your freight – it’s just that the transit time is a little bit more vague. We might only have a couple of services per week, or your freight might take an extra couple of days to be delivered – which is perfectly fine most of the time.

The difference with Applied Logistics is that we can use a different service for each shipment. Often, we can reduce the transit time of freight when it’s already in motion. This might be through upgrading the service with the carrier, switching carriers at a transit point, or arranging a direct delivery upon arrival.
