It is transported in significant quantities, and its weight is measured in deadweight tonnage (DWT). The cargo is loaded and moved in loose form, without packaging. These are unprocessed commodities intended for use in manufacturing or production. When bulk cargoes are not loaded properly, they can shift, liquefy, ignite, or detonate. This can have disastrous consequences, such as vessel capsizing, losing stability, or sustaining severe structural damage. These incidents can lead to fatalities, injuries, insurance claims, operational disruptions, and significant expenses. Unfortunately, some people still assume that dry bulk cargoes are less hazardous and require less expertise than liquid bulk or container shipments. But this is not true, as evidenced by the fact that [...]
