roll trailer is a dolly platform that requires towing by a powered vehicle. It is commonly used for the transport of heavy static goods and materials. Roll trailers are similar to shipping flat racks containers; however, they have a set of rear wheels.

Roll trailers are a piece of common equipment used in ports and onboard of roll-on/roll-off ships,[1] to facilitate the shipping of unmovable commodities from one port to another.

Standard lengths of roll trailers are 20, 40 and 62 feet (6.1, 12.2 and 18.9 m), in line with twenty-foot equivalent unit shipping containers, but can also be found in lengths of 30 and 80 feet (9.1 and 24.4 m). The standard payload of roll trailers is 80 or 100 tons, and the tare of the trailer varies from 7 to 10 tons.[2]

The trailer has a steel structure and a hardwood surface, plus a front pocket for towing by tug master gooseneck, and side handles for applying lashing hooks.

Operations

Goods are usually placed on roll trailers by forklift or shore crane, secured with lashing or chains, and then towed on/off-board via tug master tractor.[3] When empty, they can be stacked like shipping containers.

Every trailer has a unique identification number stamped on sides, composed of four letters and seven digits, directly related to the manufacturer company’s abbreviation name, the payload capacity, and its length size.

All the main shipping lines have an owned fleet of roll trailers available to be offered to shippers for moving heavy static cargo. Additionally, all main roll trailers manufacturers tend to lease extra equipment during peak times, by charging a daily hire fee to the shipping lines.

Once in the port, after a short “free time” period, roll trailers are subject to demurrage charges,[4] to cover storage and detention fees[5] and to ensure consignees swiftly unload their cargo, temporary position on the shipping line’s trailers during the sea passage.
As per standard practice, and opposite to shipping containers, roll trailers are not permitted to exit the ports, with receivers requested to collect their goods inside the terminals.
