Breakbulk shipping & logistics

March 2, 2020 - March 13, 2020


The seminar on Breakbulk Shipping & Logistics covers all essential aspects of transport, storage, stevedoring and shipping of breakbulk. During this course you will get an opportunity to discuss with leading experts in the breakbulk industry about its opportunities and challenges.

The ports of Flanders are the ultimate ports for the handling of steel, project cargo, fruit, forest products and cars in Europe. With more than 200 calls of breakbulk vessels each month, the Port of Antwerp has a considerable concentration of shipping breakbulk cargo. Numerous logistics players offer various services with a high added value to the customer: steel service centres for handling and cutting steel, warehousing, ripening and refrigeration of perishables, and many other services for fruit, wood and project cargo. North Sea port in Ghent is the number 1 breakbulk port in Europe and the port of Zeebrugge is the largest port in the world for importing and exporting roll-on roll-off cargo.

Therefore, this port course is hosted at the heart of the European breakbulk market.
