Breakbulk Europe is the leading international exhibition and educational forum for the sectors of Cargo, Logistics, Breakbulk, Freight Forwarding, Ground Transportation, Air Transportation and Maritime industry. One of the defining traits of this international exhibition is the fact that each year it switches host cities among several major European cities.

  • The audience consists of decision-makers that number over 10,000 professionals;
  • There are two massive outdoor display areas reserved for big equipment;
  • Four content theatres tackle emerging trends and the most talked-about challenges;

As to what trade visitors are able to see displayed in the halls – we’re talking the entire value chain from transport facilities and freight transport systems to transport technology. It’s the linchpin for the European sector and one event you can’t afford to dismiss for your business.
