Ships are generally categorized based on their
use, their type of cargo, and the method by which
the cargo is loaded. In terms of usage, ships can
be classified as commercial vessels, military
vessels, fishing vessels, or specialized vessels.
Commercial vessels can be classified as cargo
ships, which carry cargo, or as passenger ships,
whose primary function is to carry passengers.
When classifying based on cargo type, if the
cargo is in a liquid state then the ship is
called a tanker, if it is in a solid state it is
called a cargo ship, and when it is carrying a
powder it is called a carrier. However, nowadays
these terms are often used in an indiscriminate
manner. Within the industry, there are ten main
shipping classifications

success story of the last 40 years. General cargo

and fragility of the numerous cargoes being
carried on any one vessel.  Read More
