Break Bulk

We handle break bulk shipping both internationally and domestically.

Break bulk cargo was once the most common shipping material from port to port and door to door, but today it represents a smaller percentage of the shipping industry. Most cargo today is shipped via containers, because using standardized containers simplifies the loading and unloading of cargo from ships and trains. There are times, however, when a standard container isn’t going to work.

When your cargo won’t fit readily into a container because of an odd size, or if the port of pick up or destination doesn’t have the capacity to handle the loading, then you’ll need an expert to help you navigate the special circumstances that comes with break bulk shipping. At Bruning International, we have years of experience in dealing with all the issues that can come up when shipping non-containerized freight.

Break bulk cargo means a different set of logistics for getting your material from door to door. We have moved all types of break bulk material, but each project has its own set of unique issues to resolve. Our job is to anticipate problems, resolve bottlenecks, and deliver your goods with the kind of care we would use on our own cargo.

From crating and lifting, to lashing and rigging, to load and offload, we can get your out-of-gauge material moved from one corner of the world to another. Besides our experience with the physical issues of shipping break bulk materials, we are also import and export experts, dealing with international shipping and freight issues on a regular basis.
