Bulk Cargo

Bulk Cargo is unpacked dry cargo such as grain, iron ore or coal. Any commodity shipped in this way is said to be in bulk.

The term bulk cargo is often used in the shipping industry to describe goods that are not packed into individual containers. Instead, they are loaded into a large vessel such as a freighter or oil tanker.

Bulk cargo can be shipped in two ways:

1. By using a bulk carrier, which is a specialized ship designed specifically for this type of cargo.

2. By loading the cargo onto traditional vessels and using cranes to move it around.

The benefits of shipping bulk cargo include lower shipping costs and fewer delays at ports. However, there are also some disadvantages, including the need for special equipment and the risk of damage during transport.
