HOW BREAK-BULK SHIPMENT ARE CARRIED OUT – APT LOGISTICS
Break bulk shipments refer to the transportation of cargo that is not containerized or unitized, such as oversized, heavy, or irregularly shaped items that cannot fit into standard shipping containers. Examples of break bulk cargo include steel coils, lumber, machinery, and vehicles.
Unlike containerized cargo, break bulk cargo is shipped loose and loaded onto ships in individual pieces or on pallets. Break bulk shipments require specialized handling and stowage, and the cargo may need to be secured with ropes, chains, or other equipment to prevent damage during transportation.
Break bulk shipments are typically loaded and unloaded using cranes or other heavy equipment, and may require specialized facilities such as warehouses or terminals. As a result, break bulk shipping can be more time-consuming and expensive than containerized shipping.
Despite its challenges, break bulk shipping remains an important mode of transportation for certain types of cargo that cannot be containerized. Many shipping companies offer break bulk services, and there are specialized logistics providers and freight forwarders that specialize in handling break bulk shipments.
