Abstract

For the firm that ships or receives extremely large quantities of product, entire ships are used. Large is the operational word; a dry-bulk freighter may carry 65,000 tons compared with 50–80 tons in a common railcar. Handling vessel loads of goods requires extensive cargo-handling equipment, storage space, and funds to invest in large stockpiles of inventory.
