The range of solid bulk cargoes is considerable: iron ore, coal, grain, alumina, fertilisers, scrap, sugar, sulphur, cement etc., not forgetting a large number of agricultural products for the human and animal food industry; such as rice, corn, tapioca, copra, palm expellers and also, since the late nineteen nineties, cocoa. Ship types may vary from dedicated bulk carriers to general cargo vessels and a large range of coasters. Transportation from the port of destination to inland reception facilities is almost exclusively carried out by inland barges.

It is important to note that many of the solid bulk cargoes are classified under the International Dangerous Goods Code for Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC Code) and, as such, require special attention during loading, transportation and discharge.
