What Is Breakbulk Cargo?


Breakbulk cargo is the heavyweight stuff. It’s the bulky, tall items such as heavy machinery, vehicles and motor homes. Breakbulk shipping lines such as BBC need to take into account a wide range of factors due to the size, dimensions and cost of the loads involved. Some examples of this type of breakbulk sea shipment are:

  • Motorised vehicles such as cars, lorries and tractors
  • Cargo that can be loaded using trailers such as yachts, caravans and rolling heavy plant equipment
  • Agriculture machinery, including fertiliser spreaders and verge cutters
  • Heavy machinery and tools
  • Power generation items such as generators and turbines
  • Mining equipment like conveyor belts, drilling rigs and mine roof supports
  • Steel and other metal products
