Breakbulk cargo is defined as general cargo or goods that do not fit in or utilize standard shipping containers or cargo bins. Breakbulk cargo is transported individually, oftentimes on a skid or pallet or in a crate.
Examples of breakbulk cargo include construction equipment, manufacturing materials, oversized vehicles, boats, cranes, turbine blades, generators, large engines and more.
The main benefit of shipping in this manner is the ability to move oversized, over-weight items that wouldn’t otherwise fit into a container or cargo bin. Simply getting these large items from point A to point B via such a service is a big plus for many shippers.
In some cases, breakbulk can be an affordable way to ship such large cargo — since the item will not have to be dismantled to ship. When you reduce the time spent in deconstruction and re-construction, the item will be ready for dispatch upon arrival much more quickly.
