Roll On, Roll Off Shipping in India

The experience of the first roll on, roll off ship service in India, which began to transport goods from Mangaluru to Hazira port in October 2015 is analysed. It was expected to transform transportation by saving fuel, protecting the environment, and reducing traffic congestion. However, the ship owners decided to abandon the service within five months. A qualitative research approach is used to identify the causes for this, and the practical challenges faced by the industry. The key lessons learnt and possible policy interventions to revive the innovative ro-ro service are highlighted.
