20th Annual Breakbulk USA Transportation Conference and Exhibition

July 23 - All Eyes are now focused on New Orleans, as the 20th Annual Breakbulk Transportation Conference & Exhibition will return from October 13th to 15th 2009 at the Ernest M. Morial Convention Center.

The Journal of Commerce's Breakbulk Transportation Conference and Exhibition is now the single largest gathering of top executives in the breakbulk and project cargo industry.

The logistics business of moving breakbulk cargo has seen many slumps in recent decades and the global recession of the past year has been one of the worst. But the downturn appears to have bottomed out and momentum is beginning to build for a new cycle of breakbulk recovery. Economic indicators are positive going forward as the 2009 Breakbulk Transportation Conference and Exhibition celebrates its 20th anniversary.

This year's Breakbulk Transportation Conference and Exhibition includes the industry's biggest collection of exhibitors and two days of panels that will examine the renewing breakbulk sector, its key emerging markets and regions where the Breakbulk industry is coming back.

During the two-day conference of panels, leaders of the breakbulk industry will address the major topics, trends and challenges that face the transportation and logistics of the specialised cargoes that make up the breakbulk trade.
