Breakbulk shipment, also known as break bulk or general cargo, refers to the transportation of goods which are too large or too heavy to be containerized. The main reason to load in Breakbulk is if the cargo requires a specific assistance to be loaded (cranes, good lift, pipes…). Among Breakbulk ships, we have : Multi-Purpose Vessels (MPP), Handy-Size vessel and Bulkers.

From small and heavy to long and light, breakbulk shipments can be easily stowed, stacked and moved on breakbulk ships, which are designed to accommodate a wide range of cargo sizes and shapes, and may have features such as adjustable decks, ramps, or cranes to facilitate loading and unloading.


General Cargo

Breakbulk ships are made to handle a wide range of cargo sizes and shapes. Thus, many cargos which cannot be shipped in RoRo or Containers are allowed to be loaded on Breakbulk ships.

Special Cargo

Along with general cargo, Breakbulk ships handle special cargo as well, it can be boats,

  • Boats

Boats represent a heavy part of our breakbulk shipments. We have shipped countless boats, coming in all shapes and sizes. These units often come on a metal frame that we lift onto the breakbulk ship. However, we also ship in « water/water », the boat is lifted from the water onto the ship and then discharged from the ship onto the water.

We are in touch with many ship-owners who made bulkers the heart of their business. Through them, we can handle your bulk cargo.
