- Roll On/ Roll Off shipping: this method of shipping, also known as RORO is available for anyone importing a vehicle from the United States to Algeria. With this method of shipping, your vehicle will be driven onto the deck of a ship where it is parked ad harnessed down for safety. Your vehicle will then be rolled back off when it has arrived to the new port.
