Break Bulk Shipping

Not all cargo can be neatly stowed in a standard shipping container. Break bulk shipping is the ocean freight solution for uncontainerized goods that must be transported individually.

Commonly used for oversized and overweight cargo like vehicles, boats or construction equipment, break bulk allows for easy transportation of these items and eliminates space constraints caused by standard shipping containers. Palletizer or boxed cargo loaded directly into a vessel’s cargo hold is also considered break bulk.
