RoRo ships are designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as cars, trucks, etc. These vehicles are driven on and off the ship using their own wheels or a platform vehicle. This is in contrast to normal ships which use cranes to load and unload cargo. These ships have either built in ramps or utilize land-based loading facilities. The ramps are located in the stern (back), bow (front), or sides, or a combination thereof. Smaller ferries that operate across small distances often have built in rampos, but the term RoRo refers to large ocean-going vessels.
