Motorhome Shipping Roll on Roll Off Shipping (RORO) Rate Calculation

Roll on Roll off Shipping rates are charged on a number of different criteria:

Cubic metres (CBM) – CBM  is the volume of your shipment, it can be calculated with the following formula: Length x Width x Height = Cubic metre (m3) (normally calculated to the nearest centimetre).

Weight or Measurement (W/M) –  The carrier will base the sea rate on either the weight of shipment or CBM, whichever is greater. The W/M rule represents a cargo density equation i.e. light cargo is charged based on the CBM, while heavy cargo is based on the weight. W/M calculations may differ among carriers.

Metre Length – The carrier will charge a rate per metre of the cargo length, disregarding both CBM and W/M. i.e if your vehicle is 6.2m long then the rate would be: Rate($300) x 6.2 = Sea Rate of $1,860.

In addition to the Sea rate, it is important to understand that you may also have the following charges to pay:

Carrier Charges – OTHC (origin terminal handling charges), Bill of Lading, BAF (Bunker Adjustment Factor or Fuel Scale Charge), LSL (low sulphur surcharge) and other charges.

Outgoing / Export – Customs clearance fees and related charges, additional local handling fees.

Incoming / Import – Customs clearance fees and related charges, Documentation Fees (i.e BL), THC (terminal handling charges), Cargo Dues, other local handling fees.

Quite often, agents will only provide you with the fees quoted by the carrier, these often do not detail local charges or destination fees. Where available, we will include these in your quote.

(Roll on Roll Off)

How is the Roll on Roll off vehicle shipping price calculated?

Roll on Roll off (RORO) shipping costs are normally priced by cubic metre i.e. the total dimensions of your vehicle Length 5.0m Width 2.0m x Height 2.1m = 21 cbm times the cost per CBM.

Sometimes shipping companies charge by length or the greater cost of CBM or weight.

On top of the ocean rate calculated above, you will also have the following costs: Bunker Adjustment (BAF) and Low Sulphur Fuel Surcharge (LSF).

Other fees that may be charged for export and import of the shipment are Security Fees, Gate fees, Document Fees, Terminal Handling Charges (THC), and Clearance charges.

Is my car and equipment Safe?

The security and consistency of RORO shipping has improved over the last few years, with very few reported incidents of damage and theft from vehicles.

If you ship via RORO, we would advise that any removable items are secured / locked up. If you do have personal belongings in the vehicle, consider putting in place a temporary barrier preventing people from accessing them.

Where possible, make sure everything has been stored out of sight and inaccessible to anyone but you.

If you do plan to ship personal belongings with your vehicle, please read the next FAQ.

Can I ship personal belongings with my vehicle?

Most RORO shippers state that they do not accept personal belongings in their T&C's, others state that they are allowed in Motorhomes or that they are carried at your own risk.

The first and most important thing to understand is that if you do take personal belongings, it will be at your own risk.

In practice, personal effects are tolerated, however they should be secured and stowed away out of sight.

We would recommend that you fully secure or separate the area where your personal effects are, you can do this by creating a secure barrier between sections of the vehicles, having chains or separate locks on the passenger doors and boot. You should not leave anything unsecured in the vehicle where people can access it.

*Note The loading of vehicles with personal goods is at the discretion of the shipping company, they reserve the right to refuse loading of your vehicle. They may also sometimes request additional photos of your vehicle prior to loading.
