What is RO-PAX ?
RO-PAX is an abbreviation that stands for "Roll-on/Roll-off Passenger Ferry." It refers to a type of passenger ferry that is designed to carry both passengers and vehicles. The vehicles drive on and off the ferry using ramps, hence the term "Roll-on/Roll-off." These types of ferries are commonly used for inter-island or coastal transportation, as well as for transporting passengers and vehicles between mainland and island destinations.
RO-PAX ferries typically have large vehicle decks, as well as passenger lounges, cabins, and other facilities for the comfort and convenience of passengers. They are usually built to be highly maneuverable and efficient, with a focus on safety and stability. These vessels are an important part of the transportation infrastructure in many coastal communities and island nations.
