RoRo ' 94

Svenska Massan Gothenburg, April 26-28 RoRo '94 returns to Gothenburg, Sweden as the major meeting for all those involved in the business of marine transport using roll-on/rolloff methods. Since 1976 the RoRo series of conferences and exhibitions have evolved and grown to become a leading international meeting, covering every aspect of marine transport using roll-on/rolloff methods. A special feature of every RoRo exhibition is the high profile participation of leading ports and shipping lines, and RoRo '94 will be no exception.

Stena Rederi, Tor Line, Wallenius and the ports of Cuxhaven, Gothenburg, Hamburg, and London will be present, among many other shipowners, operators and port authorities, and there will be displays by companies providing the whole range of techniques and equipment for RoRo cargo handling operations.

Many RoRo shipowners are planning and pursuing substantial newbuilding programs which will take them into the next century, according to show management. There are currently 27 RoRo ships on order with the prospect of up to 10 further new orders within the next three months.

There is also a great potential for the high speed freight ferry, now regarded by major operators as a serious alternative to the traditional ferry, with a demonstration of future conviction in the concept shown by the 40-knot, 1,500-passenger, 375-car Stena HSS capable of carrying freight vehicles as well as cars.

The accelerating demand for ships and the expected boost in traffic is also encouraging more port investment in new terminal and linkspan construction leading to renewed purchasing of cargo handling equipment.

The RoRo '94 Exhibition is a way for companies to develop future business in one of the strongest growth periods ever experienced in the RoRo industry.
