What is a Lower Deck?

In shipping, a lower deck refers to the part of a ship that is located beneath the main deck. This area is commonly used for storing cargo that requires cooler temperatures or that needs to be protected from the elements. Lower decks are often used for carrying perishable goods such as fruits, vegetables, and meats. They are also used to transport vehicles, heavy machinery, and other large items that require special handling.
