hort sections of chain or wire rope. The term comes from the Dutch word “roer” meaning to move or to shake. Ro-Ro lashing is a type of marine cargo handling that involves the attachment of a heavy chain to the bow and stern of a ship. The chain is then hauled in by a winch, which pulls the ship closer to the dock. Ro-Ro lashing is used to move bulk cargo, such as oil and coal, between ships and shore.
