How to distinguish between Break Bulk (BBK) and Out Of Gauge (OOG)?

Shipping business distinguishes two methods for loading Special Project cargo: Break Bulk and OOG (Out-of-gauge)

We define Break Bulk cargo as any oversized cargo that does not fit into an Open Top or a Flat Rack container, such as large luxury yachts, very large factory components, very large machines, train cars, locomotives, massive turbines, generators, etc. This also includes heavy lift cargos. Break Bulk cargos are loaded on a bed of Flat Racks (several assembled side by side) or Platforms, under deck.

We define Out-of-gauge as any cargo that exceeds the dimensions of a standard container by length, width or height. Depending on their dimensions, OOG cargos are loaded on Open Top, Flat Rack containers or Platforms.
