Project Cargo Summit 2023 is back to its normalised format. As the project cargo and breakbulk industries returned to a more normal way of operating, the Summit itself is moving back from the digital platforms to a physical setting.

With around 100 industry experts gathered in a single spot, it is prime time to discuss the major issues the industry is facing and suggest potential solutions. This year’s Project Cargo Summit is all about managing digital, political and environmental demands. The industry will converge in Bremen on September 6-7 to discuss the issues, and solutions and to network as well. You can meet members of the Tank Storage Magazine team there next week!

 

Topics of discussion

Through various sessions, speakers will put the supply chain under the microscope and look closely into the challenges and major drivers within the breakbulk and project cargo industry.

The offshore wind industry is certainly undergoing a major expansion, however, before the ambitions of this industry can materialise, there are many questions to be answered. Is the supply chain big enough to cater to that specific industry? Is there much capacity left for other aspects of the energy transition agenda, such as Hydrogen industries or resurging Carbon Capture and Storage?

Furthermore, how will the multipurpose fleet of the future look, what are the technical advancements, are there enough vessels on the water or on order, and what is the fuel of the future? These are all the questions that will be asked and will need answering.

 

Networking

While the conference part of the programme will focus on recognising and focusing on specific aspects of the industry, the networking program will enable the participants to exchange experiences and make new connections.

Project Cargo Summit 2023 will open with a site visit to the breakbulk terminal in Neustädter Hafen in Bremen, Europe’s largest terminal for steel products, forestry products and project cargo. The terminal area of approximately 100 hectares, including 240,000 m² of covered storage space, handles around 1.4 million tons of break bulk cargo per year.

To cap off the proceedings of day one, a networking dinner will take place, offering the perfect opportunity to get together with your fellow industry professionals in an informal setting.

 

Rail freight connection & breakouts

For the first time since its inception, Project Cargo Summit will be held in parallel with RailFreight Connects, an event catered towards the rail freight industry and port operators. Participants of both events will meet on several occasions and can attend breakout sessions of both events. Breakout sessions will feature topics ranging from labour shortage at terminals, solving port congestion and bottlenecks to using smart solutions for precise ETA prediction.

The event is set to take place at Radisson Blu Hotel Bremen on September 6-7 and with limited spot availability, make sure you don’t miss out by registering here!
