Bulk cargo is a shipment type that is shipped without any package, pallet, or box. The term bulk means that dry cargoes such as mines, grain, coal, etc., are transported unpackaged, unloaded in containers, and loaded directly into the ship's holds. Bulk carriers transport bulk cargo.
The loads transported by bulk carriers but transported in pieces with equipment such as pallets, sacks, and barrels are called break bulk cargoes.
Bulk cargo refers to goods or commodities that are transported in large quantities without individual packaging. It includes materials such as grains, ores, minerals, liquids (such as oil and gas), coal, and other similar substances.
An example of a bulk cargo is coal, which is often transported in large quantities without individual packaging or containers.
A:Non-bulk cargo refers to goods or commodities that are transported in individual units or containers. These can include items such as machinery, vehicles, packaged goods, consumer products, and other items that are typically packaged or palletized for transportation. Non-bulk cargo is usually handled and shipped differently than bulk cargo due to its individualized nature.
