Week 22, 2018


It is week 22 and I am attending the breakbulk expo in Bremen which takes place between 29-31 of May. It is normally held in Antwerp however this year it takes place in the German port city of Bremen. It is the biggest event in the world for breakbulk and project cargo and thus there is a need to be there to meet and greet and hopefully catch up with old friendships whilst also forging new ones.

Therefore for this week's issue of Project Cargo Weekly I have compiled  5 interesting interviews that we have had in the last year. It is a mix of shipowners, freight forwarders and also a geographical mix spanning from Nepal to Africa and from Scandinavia to Australia. We also have trade sector news, video, history and other informations for you as usual.

Meantime a general notice to you all that:
Project Cargo Weekly will be "closed" for holiday between June 15 and August 02 meaning our last issue before the summer will be June 14 and our first issue after summer will be August 02.

Enjoy and have a great rest of the week...end

Yours sincerely, Bo H. Drewsen
