Pure Car and Truck Carrier
This ship is dedicated to the transport of motor vehicles. For the loading/unloading of vehicles, drivers roll on and off the vehicles via a ramp bridging the stern of the ship and the terminal quay. Inside the ship is a structure like a multi-storied parking lot. The overhead clearing is minimized, but some of the decks are variable in height so that not only ordinary passenger cars but also large buses, trucks and construction machines can be accommodated. This makes possible efficient loading of as many vehicles as the overall space allows.
