Understanding LIFT ON / LIFT OFF Services

LIFT ON / LIFT OFF (LOLO) is a method of loading and unloading vehicles onto and off cargo ships using specialized equipment. This technique is particularly advantageous for shipping vehicles, such as automobiles, heavy machinery, and oversized cargo, which may not be suitable for conventional roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) methods.


The Benefits of LOLO Services:

  1. Versatility: LOLO services are adaptable to various types of vehicles, from standard cars to oversized and specialized equipment.
  2. Safety: Our trained professionals handle the loading and unloading processes with utmost care, reducing the risk of damage to your vehicles.
  3. Security: With our LOLO services, your vehicles are securely fastened during transport, ensuring they arrive at their destination in the same condition as when they left.
  4. Efficiency: Our state-of-the-art equipment and experienced personnel ensure swift and efficient loading and unloading, minimizing downtime.
  5. Global Reach: Direct Express Inc. offers LOLO services for international shipping, connecting you to destinations worldwide.
