what is a ro ro vessel?

The key point of Roll-on, Roll-off as I understand it is that the boat has two identical ends, so that it is not necessary to turn it around for unloading, nor for the cars to reverse to unload. They drive onto one end and off the other.

Roll on-roll off. They have large ramps that anything from motorcycles to tanks and airplanes can be driven up. The doors are usually something like 50 feet wide and about the same high

Have you never heard the song Ro Ro the boat?
It is a vessel with a ramp or ramps which allows cargo to be rolled on and off
This ranges from very small river ferries through short sea ferries like those that ply between the Uk and Mainland Europe to ocean going liners which travel the world carrying everything from cars, trucks and mechanical equipment.
The concept started with the LCT's (Landing Craft Tank) off WWII

'RO RO' is a Roll-on, Roll-off boat, like in carrying cars, you drive 'em on, transport them, then drive them off .................
