A break in bulk point is a shipping term for any loose materials that must be loaded individually. It is a place where goods are transferred from one mode of transport to another. For example, the dock where products are transferred from ship to truck is a break of a bulk point. It relates to cargo, generally manufactured goods.

When moving, often large and weighty break bulk cargoes, it is paramount to use an expert shipping agent who knows how to handle a heavy load. Simply, it is a place where you can transfer goods from one mode of transport to another.

A place where you can transfer goods from one mode of transport to another.

A break-of-bulk point is a location, such as a city or an airport, where you can transfer goods from one mode of transportation to another with minimal costs. For example, at a sea port, you can transfer goods from a train to a ship in the same place. A good example of such a place is Chicago.
