Ocean Services

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 some of the world’s leading manufacturers.

Our vessels have heavy lift capabilities of up to 320 tons, door height clearances of up to 21 feet, and drive widths of 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. When presented with a unique cargo requiring special handling and equipment, our cargo-handling specialists will customize a solution.
