Bulk Carriers

A bulk carrier is a ship specially designed to transport unpackaged dry bulk cargo such as grains, coal, ore, steel coils, cement in its cargo holds. Dry bulk cargo can be very dense, corrosive, or abrasive, that may cause safety problems – cargo shifting, spontaneous combustion, cargo saturation – and threaten the vessel.

On bulk carriers, crew are involved in operation, management and maintenance of the vessel, taking care of safety, navigation, maintenance and cargo care in accordance with international maritime legislation. Cargo loading operations vary in complexity where loading and discharging of cargo can take several days.
