German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Ships, Sailing, Maritime / shipbuilding
German term or phrase: RoRo / LoLo
If "RoRo" can be translated as "Roll-on/Roll-off", what is "LoLo" - "Load-on/Load-off?"

The context is shipbuilding, types of ships (4 RoRo/LoLo Projektcarrier mit einer Tragfähigkeit von 5.100 Tonnen)

Thanks in advance for any help...

Fantastic! The quoted site mentions RoRo schedules as well, so confirms the translation neatly.

What would I do without Proz? ;-)
