After last year's cancellation, Breakbulk Europe will not take place on the planned alternative date in September. The reason is the still unstable pandemic situation. In 2019, Breakbulk, the world's largest trade fair for general cargo and heavy lift logistics, was already held in the halls of MESSE BREMEN. In 2020 and 2021, it was to take place again in the smallest German federal state. The cancellation of Breakbulk is sad news, also for Bremen as a location: It brings thousands of people to the city, which benefits from it. In 2019, around 11,000 visitors from 120 countries thus came to the Hanseatic city.
In the next two to three years, the general cargo fair will be held in Rotterdam. However, the organizers are confident: they would like to return to Bremen as soon as possible because of the positive experience they had in 2019.
