What does the term ”break bulk” mean?

Break bulk is a term in the transportation industry that describes general cargo transported in bulk, not containers. The cargo can be, for example, over-gauge construction machinery, large engine parts, and many others.

Exhibitors at Breakbulk specialize in the transportation and logistics industries. Plenty of freight forwarders, shipowners, ocean carriers, representatives of transportation companies, ports or terminals, and many other businesses in this thriving sector are on-site every year.
