Break Bulk

Break Bulk significantly exceeds the size and/or weight of a standard container and is therefore handled as non-unitized cargo and normally placed on a bed of flat racks with many lashing points. Break Bulk cargo includes things like yachts, masts, industrial machines or train carriages. We offer a tailored solution for your Break Bulk requirements.

With Out-of-Gauge Cargo, the dimensions of the cargo exceed the flat rack or open top container by length, width or height, but a container can still be used. Out of Gauge cargo includes things like propellers, flanges or trucks.

  • If upper corners casting is not free for lifting, slings must be used handle the unit. In that case, unit must be stowed on deck 1st tier, otherwise can’t be handled.
  • The Payload of unit cannot be exceeded else cargo will be handled as break bulk cargo.
  • Maximum payload is 40 tones regardless of load bearing equipment.
