Break bulk: means coffee is stowed in the ship’s hold in bags – the cargo is loose. Sometimes the bags are left in the loading slings to speed up discharge at destination, at the expense though of less freight capacity per cubic metre. The disadvantages of break bulk shipping are numerous: the goods can be exposed to the weather during loading and discharge; the bags can be torn; there is a risk of contamination from other cargo during the voyage; and bags may be lost or mixed with other shipments. Marine insurance is usually higher for break bulk cargo.
