Breakbulk and General Cargo

April 19 - May 6

Why this programme ?

Breakbulk is considered a valuable niche market as it encompasses a considerable amount of job opportunities and value added services in a port.
Loading and unloading breakbulk is labour-intensive.

Furthermore, general cargo creates opportunities for value added services such as supply chain management, steel service centers, quality control and packaging & storage. Shipping breakbulk requires a product specific approach: every shipment is different.

What ?

The ports of Flanders are highly experienced ports for handling of steel, project cargo, fruit, forest products and cars in Europe. In addition, some international cases and their possible link with India will be highlighted. Get ready for a deep dive in breakbulk logistics from various parties involved in the supply chain.

5) Safety and Security of breakbulk shipping
6) Case studies from the working field
