Breakbulk Cargo Services
Tuscor Lloyds’ project management teams are highly knowledgeable in managing heavy, oversized, and abnormal cargoes. While many project and freight forwarders traditionally rely on specialized break bulk vessels for such shipments, we leverage our stevedoring partners and shipping line contacts to secure space on standard shipping container vessels. This approach reduces costs, improves transit times, and enhances reliability and flexibility.
Handling break bulk cargo shipping requires determination, commitment, and in-depth knowledge of specific ports and shipping routes. We approach these challenges with creative thinking and always strive to find the most effective and logical solutions. In many cases, we can offer availability and transit times that surpass those of conventional break bulk carriers.
Our project cargo teams are dedicated to supporting clients throughout the entire process. For complex jobs, they are willing to travel to ports or loading facilities to ensure proper securing and safe stowage of the cargo. Effective coordination with the right personnel at the port is crucial for seamless connections between incoming transportation, mother vessels, storage, and handling. Our experienced teams personally engage with these key individuals, providing instructions to ensure that terminals, which are often more accustomed to handling containers, employ the correct methodology for specialist break bulk cargo.
