In the event of two RoRos docking on the same day and time, one vessel will have to wait on anchor for space, if not available. RoRo vessels can berth at designated areas only due to the access ramp that has to be lowered.

Roll-on/roll-off ships are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as cars, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars, which are driven on and off the ship on their own wheels or using a platform vehicle, such as a self-propelled modular transporter. This is in contrast to lift-on/lift-off vessels, which use a crane to load and unload cargo. RoRo vessels have either built-in or shore-based ramps that allow the cargo to be efficiently rolled on and off the vessel when in port and can carry up to 5,500 vehicles per load.

The Namibian Ports Authority has since January 2019 to date received 12 RoRo vessels.
