A bulk Terminal is an industrial facility utilized to store large amounts of a product, such as a
material before that product is moved to another location for further processing or delivery to end-
uses. Bulk Terminals are frequently an integral part of larger networks of transportation
infrastructure, including pipelines and storage facilities. They are also used in the storage of
hazardous materials. Bulk Terminals can be either road or rail-loading systems, with the former
using rails or trucks as platforms for the storage and conveyance of products while the latter uses
trucks. They are sometimes called by other names, depending on the specific application.
Other types of bulk terminals include terminal buildings, including warehouses that specialize in
the storage of finished products as well as other materials, such as petroleum. There are also
specialized warehousing yards where different types of goods are stored temporarily or long-term.
