Ro-ro Ships

Ro-ro (short for ‘Roll on, roll off’) ships are not everyone’s cup of tea and even people like me, a big fan of modern merchant ships, tend to think that there’s something of the ‘floating brick’ about these ships. These ships, as opposed to passenger and freight vehicle ferries, carry new vehicles in and out of the country and Southampton is one of the UK’s premier ports for the import and export of cars, trucks and tractors, etc.
