Break-bulk shipping is used for cargo like construction equipment, manufacturing materials, oversized vehicles or engines, boats, cranes, turbine blades, ship propellers, generators etc.

The main benefit of using break-bulk shipping is that it becomes easier for shippers to move oversized, over-weight items that wouldn’t otherwise fit into a container or cargo bin.

In some cases, break-bulk can be an affordable way to ship such large cargo — since the item will not have to be dismantled while shipping.

Break-bulk shipping is also beneficial in terms of speed.

When you reduce the time spent in deconstruction and reconstruction, the item will be ready for dispatch upon arrival much more quickly.

Break-bulk ocean shipping is a common method used to successfully transport cargo or goods that cannot fit in standard-size shipping containers or cargo bins. Instead, cargo is transported in bags, boxes, crates, drums, barrels, other handling equipment, or is simply rolled, lifted, or pushed onto a ship or barge.

In other words Cargo qualifies as break bulk when it is:

  • Wider than 14’
  • Higher than 14’
  • Longer than 40’
  • Heavier than 70,000 lbs
  • Or any combination of the above

Examples of common break-bulk goods include reels and rolls, steel girders, structural steel, heavy or oversized goods, manufacturing equipment, construction equipment and vehicles.

Benefits of break-bulk shipping:

  1. The ability to move oversized and overweight items that won’t fit in a container or cargo.
  2. Reduction in time spent on deconstruction and reconstruction so that items are ready for dispatch.
  3. Goods can enter smaller ports that typically would be unable to accommodate larger container ships or tankers.
  4. Goods don’t have to be combined in a container; therefore, items can be shipped separately..

Though the containerization method is one of the more popular shipping methods, break-bulk is noticing an influx of interested shippers with oversized items.

The ships that carry these break bulk cargoes are known as Break Bulk, Multi-Purpose or General Cargo vessels and come in a variety of sizes and types such as Single Decker, Tween Decker, Box Holds.

Cargo can be loaded under deck, on deck or between decks (tween deck) which some of the ships have.

In a break bulk or multipurpose vessel,

  • Cargoes may belong to various customers
  • No dedicated berth or terminal required
  • Can operate from any free berth

BREAK BULK SHIPS ALSO COME IN TWO FLAVOURS

  1. Gearless– meaning the ship doesn’t have its own cranes and/or other cargo handling equipment which means these ships can only berth at a terminal which has the required cargo handling equipment..
  2. Geared– meaning the has its own cranes and/or other cargo handling equipment which means these ships can call at any suitable berth at the port for cargo operations..

Freight rates for Break Bulk cargoes are worked out on the basis of Freight Ton or Revenue Ton which means freight is charged on the volume (CBM) or weight (MT) of the cargo whichever is higher..
