Breakbulk and Project Cargo

One of the both most complex and profitable parts of transport and logistics is that of breakbulk and project cargo. Breakbulk is too big or heavy to fit in a standardized 20 or 40 ft container. That’s why it has to be shipped in specialised transport forms, for instance in a special chartered ship or truck. Sometimes there is a possibility to place the cargo on top of the containers. There are many possibilities, but it’s always a special fit solution.

Project Cargo Summit is a new, fresh and ambitious. It will share the latest insights and developments on breakbulk and will bring together the international experts. Project Cargo Summit 2018 consists out of a business fair and conference. It’s located near the biggest breakbulk ports in the world: Antwerp, Zeeland, Amsterdam and of course Rotterdam (host location).

Location: Submarinehall Rotterdam

Project Cargo Summit 2018 will be held at the Onderzeebootloods (submarinehall) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The hall where submarines slipped off the ramp in earlier days, is now event space for up to 5,000 visitors. The Onderzeebootloods, having recently been renovated, has retained its raw and industrial character. The entire surface area is approx. 4,400 m2. Besides a parking lot behind the hall, it also offers modern facilities and the hall’s layout is flexible. Spido, the Waterbus and Watertaxi Rotterdam, all offer sufficient opportunities for fast and efficient transport of large groups.
