Cargo shipping plays a vital role in the transfer of material between the buyer and seller. The world’s 90% of trade is carried via the sea. Cargo shipping has evolved over the years, but the basics of business remain the same. Containers of various sizes and types are used to transport objects from one place to another. These are designed to do specialized tasks and are often loaded with cranes and some other mechanisms that are used to load and unload the container. Cargos transported by ships are of various types such as dry cargo container, bulk, general, hazardous, and petroleum. The Dry cargo container is majorly used to transport goods worldwide as it is rigid, weatherproof, and has tough sidewalls and floor. It mainly carries dry products like drums, cartons, boxes, pallets, cases, etc. along with goods it can transport vehicles across the globe. Bulk cargos mainly carry dry products, iron ore, coal, grain, and other minerals. They usually have 2-3 loading hatches in the roof of the container, and two unloading hatches are equipped in the doorways to empty the container. General cargos are often loaded individually and not with intermodal containers. Ships that carry these kinds of cargo are termed as general cargo.
