bulk transportation

 

Dry bulk transportation is the transportation process of dry materials. Most frequently these dry materials come in large quantities, and that is the main reason why many manufacturers are choosing this type of load transportation. The dry bulk transportation includes hauling from the place of materials’ origin, transportation, and unhauling of the materials.

Transportation can involve the shipment of goods and people. However, freight shipping is the method more commonly used for goods. That being said, both are used to move things from one place to the other. While the essence of transportation and freight may be similar, freight is more reliable from a commodities perspective. 

Bulk transportation refers to the transport of commodities and material goods, as opposed to people. That means it usually involves the shipment of items in large amounts. Freight can be shipped over land, water, or air. Land shipment is the most commonly used. Trucking is the largest contributor to bulk transportation shipping.
