Höegh Autoliners has a specialized fleet of rolltrailers that are designed for safe and secure transportation of breakbulk and project cargo. Our unique approach to rolling cargo on board the vessel minimizes the risk of damage and ensures a smooth transit.
Secure and safe transportation of cargo to its destination is a key priority for us at Höegh Autoliners. All of our cargo handling personnel are well trained and competent to take care of all types of cargo that can be carried on board Pure Car and Truck Carrier (PCTC) vessels.

When you leave your cargo in our hands, you can trust that it will be well taken care of.
Our team of experienced cargo operators is equipped to handle a wide range of cargo types and will work with you to find the most suitable equipment and handling methods for your shipment. Trust us to transport your cargo safely and efficiently.
Underdeck stowage only
When transporting your cargo with us, you can be assured that it is safely stowed under deck. This means there is no risk of corrosion, which can be caused by saltwater. Most loading operations are also supervised by one of our Port Captains who ensures that all cargo is safely and accurately driven on board and secured on board the vessel.
Pioneering cargo transportation
Höegh Autoliners was a pioneer when deep sea transportation of cars started in the late 1960's and across 50 years in the industry, we have developed extensive experience in handling rolling cargo of all types. If cargo does not roll by itself, we have the solution for that, using our rolltrailers to transport it on board the vessel.
Höegh Autoliners’ fleet of rolltrailers are specially designed for smooth and safe transportation of breakbulk and project cargo. By rolling cargo on board the vessel, it reduces the risk of damage compared to lifting it. Furthermore, stowing your cargo under deck means no seawater will reach it during the transportation, so you can rely on less costly packing solutions.
We can transport almost any type of cargo and our professional cargo operations team will find the most suitable equipment and way of handling your cargo safely on board our vessels.
Types of Equipment
With a fleet designed for maximum flexibility, we are able to cater for a wide range of cargo. Our customers range from global vehicle manufacturers to producers of high and heavy construction equipment and other rolling and non-rolling stock. Höegh Autoliners is also a leading carrier of secondhand vehicles.
20 feet rolltrailer
32 feet superlow rolltrailer
30 feet rolltrailer
40 feet rolltrailer
Can be made Double-wide upon request
40 feet rolltrailer double wide
For wider cargo, we developed the Double-wide rolltrailer concept where two 40 feet rolltrailers are placed side by side, and joined together by a coupling system. A twin gooseneck, developed on a Höegh design, ensures the tugmaster has a firm hold of the rolltrailer at all times during transport.
62, 72 and 80 feet rolltrailer
62 feet Heavy-duty
With the use of the Höegh bridge, we can easily transfer the railcars from the truck trailer they were transported on to the railed roll trailer. This process eliminates the need for crane lifting in both the load and discharge ports, making the operation safer and less costly than with crane lifts.
For single trams up to 60 m, two or more railed roll trailers are placed in front of each other and connected with a Höegh bridge. Transfer from road truck to extended roll trailer is performed in the vessel’s cargo hold.
