There are currently 171 ships in service with the name prefix "Rio", all under various ownership and operation.

What types of ship are they? Are they recent or old vessels? This info might help to provide a better answer.

That sounds like Empresa Lineas Maritimas Argentinas S.A. (ELMA). The company is no longer around, but they did have a lot of ships with the name prefix "Rio".

Cheers
