What’s the Difference between Freight and RO/RO Shipping?
Both means of transport are great options, and they’re actually about the only options one will have to choose from. RO/RO shipping tends to cost less than container shipping since the vehicle is shipped on top of a flatbed ship without protection from the elements. The vehicle must be empty at the time of transport.
Container shipping can be shared with another individual. This also means that the costs can be split. Property can be stored in the vehicle as well as the container itself. This means of transport is efficient for anyone moving to Mahajanga for permanent residency or for a long period of time.
