Many liquids and flowable solids can be successfully transported without being placed in a container. Some of the solid bulk cargoes are: Ores, fertilizer, coal, limestone, cement, all kinds of grains, flour, chemicals, sugar. Liquid substances are products such as petroleum products, vegetable oils, rubber raw materials, liquid gases, chemicals, wine, fruit juices, milk, water and beer. Crude oil and petroleum products take the largest place in bulk cargo transportation in terms of tonnage. Secondly, there is grain transportation. Grain transportation leaves its place to ore transportation as metal needs increase. The most important benefit of transportation in open stacks rather than packaging is that it is economical. There is no need to use packaging material. In addition, the packaging work is eliminated. In bulk cargo transportation, since loading and unloading can be done faster, ships lose less time in ports and thus they make more voyages.
