General cargo ships
In the field of maritime transport, general goods are goods that must be stowed individually. They appear on several bills of lading, each covering a different commodity. Unlike goods stowed in intermodal or bulk containers, such as oil or grain, these goods are stowed individually. General cargo vessels are often referred to as general cargo vessels. The term breakbulk derives from the expression breaking bulk – removing part of a ship’s cargo or starting the process of unloading the ship’s holds. These bulk goods are transported in bags, boxes, crates, drums or barrels. The breakbulk has been the most common form of freight for most of the history of shipping. Since the late 1960s, the volume of general cargo has declined globally due to the rise in containerisation.
