Breakbulk Shipments

While containers may be one of the convenient ways to ship cargoes, they are not always the best option. That’s where breakbulk shipping comes into play. Items that are oversized, overweight and are too large to fit into containers are considered breakbulk, and must be loaded individually.

Examples of breakbulk cargo include wind turbines, oil and gas machinery, pipes, turbine blades, ship propellers, generators, large engines and steel parts.

Project Cargo

Considered as one of the most complex shipments in shipping, project cargo includes large, heavy, high value or complex parts of equipment. The term “project cargo” comes from the need to devise a detailed and well-thought plan that takes into consideration time, delivery date, budget and safety requirements.

There are several industries that rely on project cargo such as:
  • Oil and gas
  • Renewable energy
  • Aerospace
  • Engineering
  • Military


General Cargo

  • Loose or separate cargo: considered as a single product and can directly be allocated to the most suitable space on the airplane.
  • Palletised cargo: that is a group of goods shipped together and packed on a pallet or container.

  • Retail and most consumer goods

Special Cargo

As the name may hint at, special cargo are goods that require special handling due to their nature and/or value. They may have to follow a specific criteria during their transport such as packaging, labeling, documentation and handling.

Special shipments can either be:
  • In gauge cargo: goods that can be shipped in a standard 6-wall container, flat-rack or open-top container.
  • Out of gauge cargo: oversized goods that can’t be shipped in a flat rack or open-top container since they exceed them by length, width or height..
Items that fall into the special cargo category include:
  • Dangerous goods
  • Animals
  • Perishable cargo
  • Wet cargo
  • Time and temperature sensitive products such as medical kits
