Break bulk is cargo that is shipped outside of a container, loaded and unloaded individually, and is the ideal method for extremely large and/or heavy project cargo. This type of cargo is loaded and unloaded individually and is usually packaged in crates, barrels, drums or bags. The use of break bulk has declined as containers are generally more convenient for the customer and the people loading and unloading the freight. However, there are certain goods that can only be transported this way while some customers just prefer it.
