Isn't the Mokka too high for those decks??? Reminds me of last year when we went into an underground car park in Amiens in France forgetting we still had a roof box on.

Tight to say the least.

That is AMAZING! How many drivers must they have to do the loading and in my ignorance I thought they were loaded in containers for some reason. No wonder it takes so long to get to the dealer for goodness sake. It will take DAYS to offload all those. Incredible and almost military precision demonstrated there. Thanks for sharing. I noticed them fastening them to the floor. I guess choppy seas would necessitate they didn't move lol.

If you have ever taken one of the supercats , it is a very similar experience . I think they unload in less than a day , as I remember seeing something about this on TV a few years back .

The logistics of loading the cars in the correct order to ensure a seamless unload is mind blowing. You can see why they have the tape/film on the panels in case they touch on the high seas.

Never fear! The guys n gals at Portbury have earned the no.1 position in Europe for quality car handling. I'm happy to trust them with my Mokka baby!

Do they unload them as fast or is it five cars in an hour then a coffee break?

I thought they drop the ramp & take a run up at the jetty & shoot them off a row at a time.
