The history of stena roro

Stena RoRo, a wholly integrated division of Stena AB, was one of the first participants in the RoRo market. Its experience, knowledge of vessel operation and close customer relationships give Stena RoRo a competitive advantage. In addition, Stena RoRo is considered a leader in the development of technologically advanced vessels.​

A milestone in the Stena RoRo story was in 1977 when 11 new RoRo vessels were built at Hyundai Shipyard in South Korea. This order was an important and crucial starting-point for our future engagement in successful RoRo operations.
