What is Initial Load?

Initial load refers to the first load or shipment of cargo that is transported on a vessel or other mode of transportation. This can include the initial shipment of goods from a factory or warehouse to a port or other transport hub, or the first shipment of goods on a vessel departing from a port. The initial load is an important milestone in the transportation of goods, as it marks the beginning of the journey and sets the stage for subsequent shipments and deliveries.
