How to Choose the Break Bulk Shipment Services

Jun 5th 2014 at 2:45 AM

Shipping industry is one of the oldest industries in the world. This is the connecting road, which enhanced business and trade facilities between different countries since ages. If shipping services would not have been there, hardly a couple of people might have gone across the sea in another country. With years of development and changes, shipping industry has reached to its pinnacle. Even today, after the introduction of various other shipment methods and mediums, shipping is an essential part of trade industry.

It is affordable, safe, and eco friendly in comparison to rest of the shipment methods. With help of the freight services, it is also possible to reach to large share of land in short period. Companies hire shipping services to send off their products, construction material and even oil throughout the world with help of the shipping services. Every other company provides container shipping services or different industries, but there are a couple of services, which are not hosted by majority of them due to the complications involved in it. One such service is break bulk shipping.

In break bulk shipping, the cargo is not packed in containers but is loaded in open on the ship and in the cargo hull. Due to the size or condition of the cargo, it is not possible to store them in a container of limited size. All the containers are made as per the guidelines of ISO. They are used to reduce the theft of cargo during shipment but they are not suitable for the large cargo like construction material, large machines, oil, and grains. Such things cannot be shipped in form of containers overseas. Here are a couple of tips to look for the right break bulk shipping services, if you are planning on hiring one for your business:

Specialized ships: since the company will have to carry the break bulk cargo in open without the safety of the container, it is essential for them to have a specialized ship to carry all the break bulk cargos. You can even confirm about the ships in which they will be carrying off your load to be sure about it.

Safety measures: since the cargo will be in open on ship deck or in the cargo hull, you must find out more about the safety measures they will be taking to carry your cargo. Especially if you are sending off your expensive and state of the art machines or project equipments, safety is the first thing to be considered.


Keep all these above given tips in mind to make sure your bulk is in safe hands and with the right freight services in CIS countries.
