Lift-on Lift-off (Lo-Lo)
Mainly for cargo too large to be shipped using container service or roll-on roll-off that must be loaded and unloaded directly to the deck of the vessel using cranes and derricks from the port. We refer to this as “Lift on – Lift off”. This method of shipping is used if your boat does not have a trailer or is too large for a trailer. In this case we would have a cradle constructed for your boat for shipping. Although shipping rates and port fees are higher it still can be very economical to ship this way. The reason for the higher rates are due to the use of extra equipment such as fork lifts, cranes, man power, and of course cradle costs.
