December 14, 2023 [Hellenic Shipping News]- Thousands of breakbulk and heavy lift professionals from around the world descended on Antwerp for the best ever AntwerpXL this week.


The event, which was held from 28 – 30 November at the Antwerp Expo, featured exhibits from some of the biggest names in European breakbulk, hosted the forwarding and logistics industry’s VIPs, and facilitated networking, new business and knowledge and skill-sharing.

Exhibitor Ralph Mertens, Marketing & Business Development Manager at Deufol, said, “The show is great, AntwerpXL for us is a must-do not only because we are in Antwerp, but because it’s both intimate and international. It’s where all the breakbulk professionals meet and talk.”

Delegate Remy Aoveer, CEO of Nordway Trading, said, “I’m here to network, AntwerpXL is amazing, well-organised, and the right type of people are here. It’s really focused.”

Show sponsor Annick Dekeyser from the Port of Antwerp-Bruges, said, “The delegates at AntwerpXL are really relevant for our business. To have them all concentrated in one place at the same time is incredibly valuable.”

Conference speaker Susan Oatway, Research Analyst at S&P Global, said, “It’s been great to catch up with old friends and meet new colleagues. I love Antwerp because it’s a great place to do business and have fun.”

40 Under 40 winner Ayse Asli Basak, CEO, Shipsider “It’s really amazing to see the young generation from across many different countries and cultures celebrated at AntwerpXL’s 40 Under 40. As a woman in the industry, it’s also especially great to see all the women celebrated. Thank you to the organisers for the opportunity to raise our profiles here.”

Margaret Dunn, Portfolio Director of AntwerpXL, said, “This has been the biggest and best AntwerpXL yet and the atmosphere is thick with positivity and excitement. The conference has been extremely insightful and well-received, our exhibitors have done lots of business, and everyone is in good spirits. We can’t wait for next year’s AntwerpXL!”
AntwerpXL will return from 8 – 10 October 2024.
