Project Cargo – Breakbulk Cargo
Project Cargo – Breakbulk, are terms referring to cargo shipped by air or sea, which does not fall within standard shipping methods. For example, over-height, or oversize cargo which requires special equipment and handling. The materials and equipment assembled and shipped for a special project overseas, such as a factory or highway.
Houston Ship Channel has been serving customers since 1914. Each terminal is uniquely designed to handle a wide range of cargo types and customer needs; from grain to steel to heavy lift project cargo or breakbulk cargo to wind turbines and blades. Houston is the national leader for breakbulk cargo due to the large laydown areas located adjacent to the general cargo and heavy lift docks.
