    Dubai Port, Jebel Ali, Sets New Freight Forwarding Ro-Ro Record

    Dubai Jebel Ali Port has set a new record of handling vehicles, with over 500,000 (half a million) passing through the container port in 2012.

    Dubai’s Jebel Ali Port is the world’s biggest manmade harbour and the Middle East’s largest container port, and a key player in the freight forwarding world.

    Ro-Ro (or roll on, roll off) is the method by which freight forwarders and shippers get vehicles into containers to be shipped across the globe.

    This huge increase in importing and exporting cargo, specifically cars and vehicles, in recent years highlights the growth in Dubai, UAE, and the Middle East overall.

    It has recently been announced that the Dubai port will be expanding: increasing the current size of one of the container terminals, and constructing a new container terminal to deal with the increased demand of imports and exports to and from Dubai, UAE.

      RoRo and Vehicle Shipping

      Roll-on/Roll-off (otherwise known as RoRo) is a freight forwarding service for wheeled vehicles whereby they are roll on and off the car transporter ship.  Suitable for trucks, caravans, vans and cars, Mercator can arrange the shipment of your vehicle to almost any destination worldwide.

      An alternative freight forwarding service for importing or exporting vehicles is via a shipping container.  If shipping a vehicle for export or import in a container, Mercator will arrange for your cargo (be it a car, caravan, or motorcycle) to be secured in its container to ensure safety in transit.  This is secured using webbed netting, so that no marks are left on the vehicle whilst it is being transported.

      RoRo (roll-on/roll-off) and vehicle container shipping are two of the services offered by freight forwarding company Mercator Cargo.  Whether you’re looking to export or import a car, a van, motorcycles, or even caravans, Mercator Cargo has the experience and contacts to help you with your shipment.

      Contact us today to speak to a member of the Operations Department to discuss your RoRo or vehicle shipping requirements – Tel. 02392 756 575. Email: sales@mercatorcargo.co.uk.
