A break-bulk shipment is one where a shipper loads two or more smaller
shipments, to two or more consignees, in a single car. The car travels to
the first consignee, who removes their part of the load. The car is then
closed and re-sealed, and moved to the second consignee, who removes their
shipment, and on to the next consignee.

A small article in the 13 Aug 1932 issue of Railway Age about a
shipment of silk stated "At Chicago, where the shipment arrived on
the morning of July 30, one car broke bulk".

What does "broke bulk" mean?

TIA

THERE IS ANOTHER DIMENSION TO THE RESPONSE BY MR. DONAHUE REGARDING THE
"BROKE BULK" CAR OF SILK DESTINED FOR CHICAGO. IT MAY VERY WELL HAVE BEEN A
CAR OF SEVEAL SHIPMENTS THAT WAS UNLOADED AT CHICAGO AND THE VARIOUS
SHIPMENTS DELIVERED TO FINAL DESTINATION BY DRAYMEN. MONT
