Break Bulk

Whilst break bulk shipping is seen as a thing of the past to most people, we pride ourselves on our capabilities within this field,  as we have been trading for over 30 years, some of our more senior members of the team can remember a time before containerised shipping.

Our team call upon their wealth of knowledge along with experience gained from more recent movements.  We can organise every part of the project, moving it door to door if required.


Uniexpress are experts in arranging timed dock side deliveries, to meet with strict berth times for vessels arriving in the UK and Worldwide.  By using both geared vessels and specialised dock side cranes, break bulk has become a specialised service although it is still a commonly offered service from Uniexpress and regularly used by our clients.


Whether your machinery is small and heavy, long in length, we can match a service to meet your requirements.  As with our project shipments, a member of our team will partner you through the process of planning, pricing and execution of shipping your break bulk cargo.  Our extensive network in this field allows Uniexpress to handle large cargo consignments from anywhere in the world, to any destination.
