Thinking of industrial minerals as a loose dry bulk, it seems, that these are usually shipped in larger volumes by vessels across the seven seas. But that is not entirely correct. I have done quite a lot of mineral bulk shipments by using standard 20ft. or 40ft. containers. Of course, minerals in bigbags or in palletized paperbags seem more obvious, but yet as loose bulk material, this has been widely accepted nowadays by almost all major Carriers.
