How do shippers get their breakbulk and project cargo where it needs to be on time, in good condition, and for a reasonable price? How do they make complicated packaging, loading, transport, and discharge decisions? If their cargo has to cross the sea, how do shippers choose the best vessel type and route to make sure it arrives safely? John Hark, North America regional director for Bertling Logistics and an adjunct professor at Texas A&M University, will close the morning sessions of Breakbulk Academy 2023 with a session that completes the circle for the breakbulk logistics chain, helping students understand the fascinating opportunities that exist in this exciting shipping sector.
