General cargo - piece goods, goods or products that are transported in boxes, bags, barrels, containers, bales, big bags, packages or in other types of packaging of goods.

General cargo may include the following types of goods:

• hire, tape, wire, fittings, metal ingots, ingots, scrap metal and other various metal products;
• self-propelled and non-self-propelled tracked or wheeled vehicles, i.e. mobile vehicles;
• reinforced concrete structures and products;
• containers;
• cargo in transport packages;
• piece goods in packaging (for example, in boxes made of various
materials and different sizes);
• heavy and bulky cargo;
• various types of timber (boards, lumber, plywood, etc.);
• cement, non-ferrous metal ores and concentrates in big bags;
• cat-barrel loads, that is, various loads in barrels, baskets, drums.

General cargo can NOT include bulk cargo (oil products or fuel, liquid and caustic substances, as well as other dangerous goods), bulk or bulk cargo (crushed stone, sand, ore, coal and grain).

General cargoes are limited in size and are divided into regular, long (over 3 meters) and oversized, which by their weight are divided into lightweight and heavy with an excess weight of more than 5 tons.

Transportation of general cargo, as a rule, is carried out by a full transport batch - a wagon, a container or a road train, on ships of regular lines. General cargo may be shipped in bulk. At the same time for the delivery of general cargoes, a separate document is drawn up - the cargo list.

General cargo must always be prepared for transportation with regard to the requirements for the products being transported. These requirements are approved by the IMO Code of Safe Practice for Depotting and Securing Goods (Assembly Resolution A.714 (17)), SOLAS Convention 74.

When transported by sea transport, the cargo declared for transportation must meet all the conditions and requirements of sea transportation and the established standards applicable to transportation:

• serviceability of packaging and packaging;
• availability of seals and serviceability of locks, control tapes;
• lack of flow of liquid goods;
• compliance of the packaging with the established requirements for the cargo;
• the presence on the packaging of clear markings and warning signs and labels;
• no wet loads that are afraid of it;
• exclusion of odors and other signs of damage to the cargo.

The complexity of the transportation of general cargo is to ensure control of the quality of the packaging and careful handling of it throughout the transportation route. The peculiarity of transportation is that the general cargo is not subjected to reloading, as a rule, they are delivered in the same cargo container (most often container) from the place of loading and departure to the point of destination. General cargo moves through one set of accompanying documents, if it is not associated with a change of the mode of transport, since it completely takes up cargo capacity,

The absence of the need to perform additional operations on the compilation of delivery and modular routes or cargo handling when it is sent from one sender to one recipient leads to a reduction in the time for delivery of general cargo.
