From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A mini-bulker taking on cargo in Brest.

Bulk cargo is commodity cargo that is transported unpackaged in large quantities. These cargos are usually dropped or poured, with a spout or shovel bucket, as a liquid or as a mass of relatively small solids (e.g. grain, coal), into a bulk carrier ship's hold, railroad car, or tanker truck/trailer/semi-trailer body. Bulk cargos are classified as liquid or dry.

As of 2009 the largest bulk carrier cargo ship in the world is the 364,768 metric tons deadweight (DWT) iron ore carrier Berge Stahl.

The busiest bulk cargo port in the world is the New Orleans-area based Port of South Louisiana.
