RO-RO bound for Kolad



RORO means Roll On Roll Off, where loaded trucks are directly carried by railway wagons to their destination. Konkan Railways pass through one of the rough terrains in India. So KR ( Konkan Railways) came up with concept of RO-RO in 1998 between Kolad in Maharashtra and Surathkal in Karnataka. This has helped in saving fuel, decrease in wear and tear of trucks, reach faster to destination. This also helps in reducing the congestion of roads and lowering of pollution. This concept has been beneficial for both truck operators and KR. KR currently operates RO-RO between Kolad-Verna, Kolad-Surathkal and Ankola-Surathkal.
