The port of Antwerp is the ultimate port for the handling of steel, project cargo, fruit, forest products and cars in Europe. Shipping breakbulk requires a product specific approach: every shipment is different. With more than 200 calls of breakbulk vessels each month, the port has an excellent connection with the foreland. This is the biggest concentration in Europe and for every shipper reliable options are offered for the shipping of breakbulk cargo. Numerous logistics players in the Port of Antwerp offer various tailor-made services with a high added value to the customer. They include steel service centres for handling and cutting steel, vehicle processing centres for the customising and repairing of cars and many services for fruit, wood and project cargo such as supply management, order picking, quality control, packaging and storage.

Hear from leading experts and renowned speakers as they tackle the biggest issues facing the industry. The programme focuses on supply chain, handling and storage of general cargo and forest products, legal aspects of general cargo shipping, safety & security of dock workers, trade wars, disruptors, innovation and more.
