Break Bulk (B.B.) Cargo
Break bulk cargo is O.O.G. cargo that does not fit in an open top or a flat rack container because the cargo’s weight exceeds the container maximum payload and/or its dimensions exceed a single flat rack container, such as large yachts, large factory components, large machines, etc. Project cargo is loaded on flat rack containers (several assembled side-by-side) or platform containers. Abnormal cargo are accepted alongside of the vessel and are delivered alongside of the vessel.

Project Cargo Shipping
Flat-rack containers with a strong platform are suitable to carry heavy cargo and oversized cargo such as steel materials and machinery. The lack of sidewalls allows considerable flexibility in loading and is especially useful in transporting long cargoes. Oversized items such as yachts can be stowed on several flat rack containers set side-by-side together onboard vessels. It is important to note that the height of the end walls differs between a 40 ft. flat rack (1.943 meters/76.1 inches) and a 20 ft. flat rack (2.231 meters / 91.4 inches). Cargo that may not be over height for a 20 ft. flat rack, may well be over height for a 40 ft. flat rack.
