Cargo International Shipping

There are different types of cargo five types of cargo can be distinguished: container cargo, liquid bulk, dry bulk, breakbulk and ro-ro.

A container ship (also called boxship or spelled containership) is a cargo ship that carries all of its load in truck-size intermodal containers. Container ships are a common means of commercial intermodal freight transport and now carry most sea going non-bulk cargo.

Liquid bulk cargo includes any cargo carried in closed tanks and poured or pumped into the carrying vessel.

 RoRo stands for ROLL-ON/ROLL-OFF and means that specially designed ships for carrying wheeled cargo, such as cars, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars can drive on and off of the ship on their own wheels through a vehicle platform.

A dry bulk shipping method is a raw material that is shipped in large unpackaged parcels. Dry bulk consists of mostly unprocessed materials that are destined to be used in the global manufacturing and production process.

Ocean shipping is a common method used to successfully transport cargo or goods that cannot fit in standard-size shipping containers or cargo bins. Instead, cargo is transported in bags, boxes, crates, drums, barrels, other handling equipment, or is simply rolled, lifted, or pushed onto a ship or barge.
