Out Of Gauge Cargo or OOG Cargo / Breakbulk Cargo

If your cargo does not fit into a container, then it is classified as OOG Cargo, or Out of Gauge Cargo.


O.O.G. cargo exceeds the internal dimensions of a container by length, width or height. Depending on its
dimensions, O.O.G. cargo is loaded on an open top or flat rack container.



Break Bulk (B.B.) cargo

B.B. cargo is O.O.G. cargo that does not fit in an open top or a flat rack container because the cargo’s weight exceeds the
container maximum payload and/or its dimensions exceed a single flat rack container, such as large yachts, large factory
components, large machines, etc.
B.B. cargoes are loaded on flat rack containers (several assembled side-by-side) or platform containers. B.B. cargoes are
accepted alongside of the vessel and are delivered alongside of the vessel.
