Online Skills and Training


Breakbulk Shipping refers to cargo that can only be transported on multipurpose ships and is generally not carried on other ship types. Transportation of heavy lift, project cargo and non-containerized cargo is a sector of shipping that requires specialized knowledge. As a rapidly growing, important area of maritime business, Breakbulk Shipping calls for new entrants with the appropriate skills and existing professionals who can achieve a global benchmark of industry knowledge.

ECM’s Breakbulk Shipping online skills and training courses are accredited by The Breakbulk Institute. The Breakbulk Institute grew out of panel discussions at Breakbulk (US) and Breakbulk Europe conferences.  This panel, composed of shippers, carriers, and third party logistics providers, defined their primary industry challenge as being able to attract, develop, and retain qualified talent within their organization. ECM’s courses have been designed specifically to help companies transition employees from new hires into qualified Breakbulk professionals.
