Breakbulk cargo is defined as general cargo or goods that do not fit in or utilize standard shipping containers or cargo bins. Instead, breakbulk cargo is transported individually, often times on a skid or pallet or in a crate. Examples of breakbulk cargo include construction equipment, manufacturing materials, oversized vehicles, boats, cranes, turbine blades, ship propellers, generators, large engines and more.

Transportation of heavy lift, project cargo and non-containerized cargo is a sector of shipping that requires specialized knowledge. As a rapidly growing, important area of maritime business, Breakbulk Shipping calls for new entrants with the appropriate skills and existing professionals who can achieve a global benchmark of industry knowledge.
