ARC’s fleet is the most versatile U.S.-flag Ro-Ro fleet at sea today. In various configurations, these vessels can transport thousands of automobiles, trucks and military vehicles, as well as helicopters and break-bulk cargo. ARC also transports agricultural, construction and other high and heavy equipment for the world’s leading manufacturers.

Our vessels have heavy lift capabilities up to 320 tons, door height clearances up to 21 feet, and drive widths up to 77 feet. With 100% under-deck stowage, the vessels also provide the highest level of cargo security and protection.

To ensure the safe, secure loading and unloading of our Ro-Ro cargoes, ARC has specialized equipment such as heavy-lift trailers, 12-axle jack-up trailers, and rubber tire bogies for rail cars.

Global Network

In addition to ARC’s base ports, customers can access global coverage via our vessel partners and their networks. ARC is able to service a customer’s far-flung cargo needs via transshipment to the Middle East, Asia, Africa and beyond. ARC offers regularly scheduled U.S.-flag P1 service to and from Europe, with P2 service elsewhere in the world. Ask our team to craft a solution for your shipment, no matter how large or small. Charter and/or tramp inquiries are also welcome.
