What is Break Bulk Cargo?
Break Bulk Cargo differs from standard freight forwarding shipping services because often items are unsuitable for transport in standard sized shipping containers. These items are usually transported as individual pieces due to being oversized and overweight.
This type of cargo usually includes goods such as equipment used in construction, automotive and oil and gas sectors as well as infrastructure machinery, off shore components, steel slab, steel coil, beams, timber packs, cars, trucks and yachts.
Break bulk rates are typically more commercially cost-effective when compared to the cost and time required in disassembling, packing, shipping, unpacking and re-assembly of oversize and overweight cargo.
