Florida-grown startup, RORO.com, makes it easy to ship large assets
Orlando, FL - The Roll On Roll Off (RORO) Company, a digital freight forwarder, recently launched its new platform, RORO.com, to accelerate global trade of large assets. With access to instant quotes, schedules and bookings, users can save time and money on shipping machinery, automobiles, boats and more.
Global trade of large assets moves too slowly. Online auctions, such as Ritchie Bros., make it easy to purchase items worldwide, but delivering these items across the world is slow. The current model relies on a subset of shipping companies called freight forwarders. Simply receiving a quote takes an average of three to four business days. RORO.com eliminates the wait time and gives users direct access to quote, book and manage RORO shipments instantly. RORO.com is a free service allowing customers to increase revenue, lower costs and reduce administrative tasks, so they can focus on their business.
RORO stands for Roll-On Roll-Off, a type of shipping vessel designed to ship oversized freight. Cargo is driven on and off board using built-in ramps, and secured across multiple levels for transit. RORO vessels make up 23% of annual U.S. port calls with companies like Caterpillar, BMW and Kia using them to transport assets worldwide.
