Connecting the Industrial Supply Chain

Established in May 2010, the Breakbulk VIP Shipper Club is an invitation-only membership program for project owners and developers, EPCs, manufacturers of industrial equipment, oil & gas service companies, energy firms, chemicals producers and steelmakers. In brief, the club is a central hub for all those who are involved in projects that require oversized cargo. For more than 27 years, Breakbulk events have brought shippers together with service providers to forge a reliable industrial supply chain. We also offer a comprehensive menu of professional training workshops suited to individuals at different stages in their careers and who work in a variety of industry-related sectors. In addition to onsite event opportunities around the world, we also offer a platform to spread useful information, tackle challenges and establish members and their companies as thought leaders through our editorial channels such as Breakbulk Magazine. There are no fees for membership.
