Brokerage of full vessels for bulk

BV Forwarding helps you to find a suitable vessel for a certain transport route for bulk cargoes and bagged cargoes.

The different cargoes we mainly handle are:

  • Rice
  • Grain
  • Sugar
  • Coal

For certain cargoes we book full vessels, depending on the contract and the quantity to be shipped.  For rice, we mainly work out of Vietnam and there we arrange full vessels and part cargo vessels with a destination in the same range or on route.

Difference between Bulk and Bagged cargoes

The main difference between bulk and bagged cargoes is already in the title.  The bulk cargoes are not packed and are shipped in bulk.  Main examples are coal, grain, soybeans, corn, …

Bagged cargoes are normally commodities packed in bags of 50kg.  Out of Vietnam, we have had quite some shipments, only of bagged rice.  The rice is packed in bags of 50kg and is loaded as such into the vessel.  Minimum quantities to be profitable towards shipment by container and shipment out of Vietnam is from 12,500 MT.
