The project

This project is about the loading of the 243 metre long cargo ship, the Washington Express, for its journey to Houston on the Gulf of Mexico. This so-called break bulk colli weighed more than 83 tonnes, so for this project we are using a special floating crane from Hamburger Hafen and Logistik AG for this project.

A break bulk container is used to ship enormously bulky or heavy freight. Strictly speaking, there are two other terms behind it: Break bulk refers to the sea transport of both bulk and general cargo.
