Handysize

Handysize is a term used in shipping to describe a category of cargo vessels that are relatively small in size and have a capacity of typically between 10,000 and 50,000 deadweight tons (DWT). These vessels are designed to carry a variety of cargoes, including dry bulk commodities such as grain, coal, iron ore, and fertilizers, as well as smaller quantities of break-bulk and project cargo. Handysize vessels are typically smaller and more maneuverable than larger bulk carriers, allowing them to access ports with shallower drafts and narrower waterways that are inaccessible to larger vessels. This makes them a popular choice for transporting cargo to smaller and less-developed ports around the world. In addition, Handysize vessels are often more flexible in terms of their cargo-handling capabilities, with a range of onboard cranes and equipment that allows them to load and unload a variety of cargoes quickly and efficiently. Overall, Handysize vessels are an important part of the global shipping industry, providing a vital link between ports and helping to facilitate the movement of goods around the world.
