the future of breakbulk

AntwerpXL, the award-winning breakbulk and heavy lift event, has been postponed from December 2021 to 4 – 6 October 2022.

The decision has been made in consultation with the community due to the announcement on Covid restrictions by the Government in Belgium last week. The situation looks likely to continue for the weeks ahead, directly impacting Easyfairs’ ability to serve the industry in the best possible way.

XL Connect, AntwerpXL’s 1-2-1 meetings programme, will continue to facilitate networking online from 7 – 9 December 2021. Those looking to connect with industry peers and enable business can still do so by registering for the 2021 event. Once registered you will receive your personal link and more information on how to book your meetings on this networking platform.

Port of Antwerp is a major lifeline for the Belgian economy: more than 300 line services to over 800 destinations ensure global connectivity. The Port of Antwerp annually handles around 238 million tonnes of international maritime freight and is home to Europe’s largest integrated chemical cluster. The Port of Antwerp accounts, directly and indirectly, for a total of around 143.000 jobs and more than €20 billion added value. 

The ports of Antwerp and Zeebrugge to join forces

The City of Antwerp and the City of Bruges have reached an agreement to merge their respective ports. The two-city agreement marks the start of a unification process that is expected to take a year to finalise. Once completed, the ports will operate under the name ‘Port of Antwerp-Bruges’. As a result of the merger, the ports will be able to strengthen their position within the global supply chain and continue their course towards sustainable growth. Furthermore, the unified port will be more resilient to the challenges of the future and will take a lead in the transition towards a low-carbon economy. The ambition is for Port of Antwerp-Bruges to become the world's first port to reconcile economy, people and climate.
