The right fit for your oversized cargo.

SeaLand goes with you regardless of the size or shape of your shipment.

We find a way. We offer safe, effective cargo handling from origin to destination and on-time reliability for all types of special cargo.

  • In Gauge means that the dimensions of the special cargo are smaller than or equal to those of the container employed. We transport in gauge cargoes within the physical constraints of our open top containers.
  • Out of Gauge cargo will fit in one container unit, but is so large or heavy that we use flat racks and open top containers to accommodate the size and weight. 
  • Break Bulk is non-containerized cargo that we ship on multiple flat rack containers put together to accommodate the very large size or weight.
