RORO – Roll-on / Roll-off

RORO ships, real assets of the CMA CGM Group

Roro vessel

The CMA CGM Group and its Comanav subsidiary offer a range of intra-Mediterranean services towards the Maghreb through a fleet of RORO (Roll-On, Roll-Off) ships.

RORO are vessels equipped with a mobile access ramp allowing the loading and unloading of the goods by towing between the edge and the wharf. They are fast and allow short loading / unloading times. Trucks with trailers, semi-trailers, dry / reefer containers and exceptional loads are thus easily disembarked.

Reliable and sustainable RORO vessels

The use of RORO ships allows for a more secure, simpler and faster transport to preserve optimum merchandise quality.

The maritime transport allows a very high degree of reliability compared to a 100% road service. The risks of uncertainties are limited by sea. The distance is shorter and the power of the ships allows the customer to benefit from exceptional transit times.

In addition to being more reliable, the transport on Rolling ships is much more ecological because it mutualizes the transport of goods on board. CO2 emissions are significantly reduced and noise nuisance is limited compared to road transport.

The RORO offer of the Short Sea Lines Mediterranean has been reviewed to adapt to the needs of the customers of each Maghreb country. We are proud to offer a complete RORO offering, the most successful ever made in the Group's history.

Rail connections are then possible from Marseilles and Genoa to Northern Europe. The Port of Marseilles is the gateway to Europe and is served by each of the three maritime services. The CMA CGM Group is the only one to offer scheduled services from the city of Marseilles.
