Dry Bulk Carriers
Bulk carriers are the work horses of the merchant fleet, transporting the raw materials that enable us, amongst other things, to house, heat and feed our populations and manufacture products.
Major bulk cargos are: iron ore (a key ingredient for the manufacture of steel), coal (both an energy source and a secondary ingredient of steel), and grain. Other bulk cargoes include products such as bauxite, cement, fertilisers, rice, sugar and timber to name just a few.
Bulk carriers offer the most environmentally friendly method of transporting large volumes of dry cargo long distances: the typical bulk carrier emits 6.5 gCO2/tonne nm, versus 61 gCO2/tonne nm for rail transport.

The ships often provide an economic and environmentally friendly alternative to other methods of transport. A special type of Ro-Ro ships is one designed just to carry new vehicles from where they were manufactured to their global customers, these are known as pure car and truck carriers (PCTC). PCTC ships move vehicles by sea. Using the ship’s own loading ramp, vehicles are simply driven on at the port of departure (‘rolled on’) and driven off on arrival at the destination (‘rolled off’).
