BTJ 1/14 - Baltic break bulk and project cargo market

Although there is a global tendency to pack more and more kinds of cargo in containers, the break bulk cargo market continues to exist, and probably will not disappear any time soon.

Upstream by Monika Rozmarynowska (Gdynia Maritime University)

Within the Baltic Sea there are still ports where a great deal of general cargo is served as break bulk. Moreover, for many ports (especially medium and smallsized ones) break bulk is a key cargo, which helps their livelihood.

The 1/2014 issue of Baltic Transport Journal in the Special section features also:

  • Andrius Sutnikas, Vassilen Iotzov, Theresa Weis, Oversize Baltic. Streamlining: cross-border transportation management of oversize cargo:
    Every year in the South Baltic area more than 60,000 permits are issued for oversized cargo transportation. The construction or modernization of power stations as well as the needs of manufacturers of machinery, chemical plants, shipyards and construction projects, result in an increased demand for carrying of oversized freight.
