Women in Breakbulk

In a predominantly male-dominated industry, women are steadily making their mark. To encourage further inclusion, Breakbulk Events & Media brings together women from different sectors to share their perspectives on building a successful career in the maritime, project cargo and breakbulk industry. These key female figures in leadership positions offer insightful tips and advice for women from all corners of the industry on how they too can climb the ranks and change the narrative on an industry that is progressing in the right direction.



We invite you to join this group, whether new to the industry, an industry veteran or anywhere in between.
