About the BBC Break Bulk
In the field of maritime transport, breakbulk cargo refers to goods that have to be stowed individually. They appear on several bills of lading, each covering a different commodity. In contrast to goods stowed in intermodal containers or in bulk, such as oil or cereals, these goods are stowed individually. Vessels carrying breakbulk are often referred to as general cargo vessels.
The term breakbulk is derived from the term breaking bulk – the removal of part of a ship’s cargo or the process of unloading the ship’s holds. These bulk goods are transported in bags, boxes, crates, barrels or drums. Breakbulk has been the most common form of cargo for most of the history of maritime transport. Since the late 1960s, the volume of breakbulk cargo has declined worldwide due to the rise of containerisation.
