RailFreight Summit 2021

The RailFreight Summit Poland starts tomorrow, Wednesday 7 September. It is going to be a record-breaking edition with over 300 industry professionals attending. If you cannot travel to Warsaw for this two-day industry event, you can still register for an online ticket.

The RailFreight Summit Poland is held for the 5th time this year and strikes down in the capital of Poland. It is a two-day event, taking place on Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 September. In less than 24 hours, delegates will be boarding the bus for the site visit, which takes them through the brand new terminal of Hupac in Brinow, nearby Warsaw.

The entire conference programme can be viewed online. If you are registered as an online visitor, you are able to follow the presentations and join the discussions. Your questions and comments will be noted and forwarded to the speakers on stage.

What’s on?

So what is on the programme? We start off by discussing the current state of affairs. Poland has been seen as the gateway to Europe, but needed to reinvent itself due to the war in Ukraine, and the impact this has had on rail freight between Europe and Asia.

We will look at the railway and terminal infrastructure of Poland. Huge investments are done, but the required result has not been observed. Meanwhile, the EU is investing less in Poland this year. Which consequences does this have on the crucial terminal of Malaszewicze?

Ukraine’s story

Rail freight between Ukraine and Poland received more focus this year, and it will be a returning topic at this year’s summit too. What can Poland do to facilitate this traffic, which is considered to be a vital corridor now that sea shipping routes are considered less stable?

The New Silk Road, which has been the main driver of growth in recent years, has been severely impacted by the war in Ukraine. How did companies deal with the challenges, and how do they look at the future of Poland on the New Silk Road?

The summit will be concluded with a session about the latest technologies and terminals. Siemens, Metrans, DB Cargo Poland CHS Container Group will share some of their projects with the international audience.
