A selfdischarger is a ship that is able to discharge its cargo using its own gear. The most common discharge method for bulk cargo is to use an excavator that is fitted on a traverse running over the vessel's entire hatch, and that is able to move sideways as well.

Selfdischarge companies:
* [ Aasen Shipping AS] (Norway)
* [ ALL-Transport AS] (Norway)
* [ Rimship AS] (Norway)
* [ Citadel Shipping AB] (Sweden)
