Landing Craft are sea going boats which are usually flat bottomed and a flat front with a lowerable ramp for easy loading and off loading of cargo. Landing Crafts are typically used for hauling Cargo, Trucks, Containers, Building Materials, Passengers and Cars. Many times a Landing Craft is the only type of vessel that can do the job of hauling cargo, vehicles and passengers between ports that do not have fully functioning or developed wharfs and docks.
Large container lines must utilize smaller feeder vessels to forward containerized cargo from major ports of call to outlying destinations. These vessels are versatile and can land your roll on roll off cargo on a pier or right to the beach. Today they are more in demand than ever due to the world wide increase in development of remote sea shores, Island resorts and ocean side communities.
