The region’s largest trade event for the project cargo and breakbulk industry

Breakbulk Magazine Shines Spotlight on Latin America

Upcoming Issue to Pinpoint Region’s Latest Project Opportunities

Breakbulk Magazine’s upcoming Issue 4 edition will shine a spotlight on Latin America, one of the world’s most exciting regions for breakbulk and project cargo movers.

According to the Energy Industries Council, in the energy sector alone, nearly 1,300 large-scale projects across all sectors are slated to start up by 2030, a construction push calling for US$1.07 trillion in capital expenditure by the end of the decade.

In Brazil, the government has announced plans to nearly double offshore oil and gas output by the end of the decade. As the ‘Potencializa E&P Programme’ looks to build on the success of pre-salt production off the coast of Rio de Janeiro by expanding oil and gas exploration to Brazil’s northern regions, we speak to Brazil-based project professionals about the likely opportunities springing from this ambitious investment drive.

In Central America, billions of dollars are being invested throughout the region in infrastructure projects and world-scale renewable energy and power plants. We get the lowdown from forwarders and heavy-lift specialists in Honduras, Panama, Guatemala and elsewhere in the region on all the latest opportunities plus some of the ongoing challenges faced by project logistics.

We will also be speaking to Murilo Caldana, project director at Sao Paulo-based freight forwarder FOX Brasil and outgoing head of the Heavy Lift Group. Caldana will give us his thoughts on how the project market in South America could evolve over the next 5-10 years and offer an overview of the HLG’s achievements during his 5-year tenure.

Alongside our Latin America content, Issue 4 of Breakbulk Magazine – published online from mid-July – will also bring you feature stories from around the globe, project opportunities, interviews with top industry executives, updates on Breakbulk events and much more!

*Latin America’s project markets will be the focus of a main stage speaker session at Breakbulk Americas 2023, taking place on 26-28 September in Houston. Click here to find out more about booking a stand on the exhibition floor.
