Inaugural Project Cargo and Breakbulk Exhibition 2022 Conference to focus on resilient breakbulk supply chains


Free registration now open for exhibition and conference, bringing together industry thought leaders from across the globe

London, UK Wednesday 23rd March 2022Industry experts will share insight into how breakbulk and project cargo shippers can build resilient supply chains at the inaugural Project Cargo And Breakbulk exhibition (PCB) event taking place at the GRB Convention Center in Houston, 6th and 7th of April, 2022.

The free-to-attend event, backed by Comexposium, will include a two-day conference and more than 50 exhibitors from the US, Canada, Brazil, and Europe.

PCB brings together the entire breakbulk supply chain, including energy, procurement and construction (EPC), manufacturers, project freight forwarders, shipping lines, road hauliers, ports and support service companies.

The event will be opened in the morning of April 6 by keynote speaker Geir-Eilif Kalhagen, Director of Maritime Division, Texas Department of Transportation, who will share his thoughts on integrating resilient supply chains and sustainable transportation networks.

“Without a holistic approach, every link is a potential weakest link,” said Kalhagen.

Kalhagen will host a panel discussion focussing on the opportunities for the logistics industry as the world transitions to more sustainable energy options.

Other panels will cover the challenges of moving dimensional cargo on the US railroad; digital training options to support the next generation of logistics leaders; and navigating transportation challenges in a post-COVID environment.

Global shipping line and PCB exhibitor BBC Chartering will take part in a fireside chat with conference organiser Emma Murray of Meantime Communications, while multipurpose carrier AAL will lead a panel discussion on the development of new vessels capable of meeting changing demands.

“The last two years have shown how pandemics, skills shortages, port congestion, extreme weather events and conflict cause significant disruption to those involved in the transportation of heavy and out-of-gauge cargoes,” said Alli McEntyre Gaharan, head of marketing and communication for PCB Future Projects.

“Houston, a global energy hub, is the ideal location to host PCB and we look forward to welcoming our exhibitors and visitors.”

Exhibitors include BBC, Thorco Shipping, Spliethoff/ BigLift Shipping, UAL America, Chipolbrok, MSC, Port of Beaumont, Port of Lake Charles, GulfStream Marine, Pentagon Freight Services, HLI Rail, Rhenus Logistics, Bellemare and Fox Brasil.
