What does Semi-Bulk mean?

Semi-Bulk refers to a quantity of goods that is larger than what is typically sold in individual retail packages but smaller than what is considered bulk cargo. Semi-Bulk shipments are usually transported in containers or trailers and may require special handling or packaging. Semi-Bulk shipments can be more cost-effective than shipping individual retail packages, but may require additional logistics planning and coordination.
