Previous chapters have dealt with different types of vessels and with chartering bulk ocean carriers. This chapter deals with those vessels that operate on a scheduled basis, between major ports, and carry assortments of relatively high-value cargoes tendered by a multitude of shippers. Usually the products are manufactured or processed, and they move by number or count. These cargoes are sometimes called break-bulk or general cargo. Traditionally, they were handled and stowed on a piece-by-piece basis by stevedores.
