Course information

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

The ports of Flanders are preferred ports for the handling of steel, project cargo, forest products and cars in Europe. With more than 200 calls of breakbulk vessels each month, the Port of Antwerp handles a considerable amount of breakbulk cargo. Numerous logistics players offer various services with a high added value to the customer: steel service centers for handling and cutting steel, warehousing, ripening and refrigeration of perishables, and various other services for fruit, wood and project cargo. North Sea Port (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. Simply put, this port course is hosted at the heart of the European breakbulk market.


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 labor-intensive. Furthermore, general cargo creates opportunities for value added services such as supply management, order picking, quality control, packaging and storage. Shipping breakbulk requires a product specific approach: every shipment is different.
