Bulk Cargo

Large quantities of goods that are transported in large amounts without being packaged, typically in loose form or large containers. 

What is bulk cargo? 

Bulk cargo refers to a large quantity of unpackaged or loose commodities, such as coal, grains, ores, cement, and chemicals, that are transported in a vessel, train, or truck without individual packaging. This type of cargo is usually loaded and unloaded with the help of specialized equipment such as cranes, conveyor belts, and hoppers. 

Bulk cargo is generally classified into two categories: 
1. Dry bulk cargo: This includes commodities that are not liquids, such as coal, grains, iron ore, cement, and fertilizers. 
2. Liquid bulk cargo: This includes commodities that are in a liquid form, such as crude oil, petroleum products, and chemicals. 

How to transfer bulk cargo?

Bulk cargo is typically transported in large quantities to reduce transportation costs, as it is more efficient to transport large quantities of goods in bulk rather than in individual packages. This is especially true for commodities that are heavy or bulky, such as coal or iron ore. Bulk cargo transportation involves specialized equipment and infrastructure, such as bulk carriers, barges, and terminals, designed to handle large cargo volumes efficiently. The loading and unloading of bulk cargo is also a specialized process that requires trained personnel and equipment to ensure that the cargo is handled safely and efficiently.
