From one carton through an entire barge load, Young Brothers services the full spectrum of cargo needs.

At Young Brothers, shippers are allowed to ship everything from pre-loaded equipment such as containers to less than container loads (LCL cargo). Available equipment types are described on the YB Equipment page. LCL cargo consists of two broad categories: palletized and unpalletized (also called “Mixed”).

Palletized Cargo

Palletized cargo consists of cargo secured to pallets and tendered as a unit. Reservations are NOT required for palletized cargo, and cargo is shipped based on space available on the barge.

Unpalletized, Mixed Cargo

Mixed cargo consists of individual boxes or items tendered to YB. These items may consist of furniture, equipment, boxes, household items, etc. Reservations are NOT required for mixed cargo, and cargo is shipped based on when the container is filled, as well as when space is available on the barge.
