390th SPOC Soldiers execute a Ro-Ro

Story by Sgt. Jeremiah Woods, 91st Training Division (Operations)

June 17, 2022

FORT HUNTER LIGGET, Calif. -- Transportation Soldiers from the Army Reserve 390th Seaport Operations Company out of Ceiba, Puerto Rico conducted roll-on/roll off operations at the Port of Oakland in Oakland, California, June 17, 2022.

Roll-on/roll off operations consist of moving tactical vehicles from a staging point on land, to a sea vessel, latching them into place in preparation for travel, then unlatching the vehicles and moving them off of the sea vessel. The purpose of this exercise is to simulate a real-world operation in which Soldiers would have to send vehicles out or receive vehicles from another port. The vessel utilized in this training exercise was the cargo ship MV Cape Orlando (T-AKR2044). The Cape Orlando is an inactive roll-on/roll-off ship that is part of the US Ready Reserve Fleet.

This roll-on/roll-off operation was an essential part of the Logistics Over The Shore mission which is a unified commander’s joint employment of Army and Navy assets to deploy and sustain a force.
