Ocean Break Bulk


Ocean Break Bulk


Non-Containerized Cargo:
Break bulk shipping involves transporting goods that are not containerized. These can include oversized items, heavy machinery, or commodities that cannot be easily packed into standard shipping containers.

Individual Handling:
Each piece of cargo is handled individually, loaded, and secured onto the vessel. This method allows for the transportation of diverse and irregularly shaped items.

Diverse Cargo Types:
Break bulk cargo can include a wide range of items such as machinery, vehicles, project cargo, steel, timber, and other large or heavy goods.


Port Facilities:
Ports that handle break bulk cargo need specialized facilities for efficient loading and unloading. This includes cranes, ramps, and storage areas capable of accommodating various cargo types.

Stowage and Securing:
Cargo in break bulk shipping is carefully stowed and secured on the vessel to prevent shifting during transit. This requires specific expertise to ensure safe transportation.


Break bulk shipping offers flexibility in handling cargo of different sizes, shapes, and weights, making it suitable for items that cannot be containerized. For oversized or irregularly shaped cargo, break bulk shipping can be more cost-effective than containerized shipping as it eliminates the need for custom-built containers. Some types of cargo transported through break bulk methods may not require extensive packaging since they are loaded individually.
