Break bulk

Bristol Port handles break bulk cargoes across a wide range of trades and has the capability to handle the largest break bulk vessels in operation

Bristol Port has a long history in break bulk; the first vessel to call the newly opened Royal Portbury dock in 1978 was owned by Gearbulk. Today Bristol Port has regular calls from Gearbulk from South Africa and Saga Welco from Asia as well as European break bulk shipments in coaster vessels.  Cargoes currently handled include Steel, Aluminium, Plywood, KLB, Paper and Pulp.

We operate over 1 million square feet of high quality, quayside warehousing with polished concrete floors for the storage of break bulk cargoes as well as extensive open storage areas.
