Book now for RailFreight Summit 2018

Influential rail freight industry leaders head the bill for the Silk Road Gateway Poland event, the first RailFreight summit taking place in Poland in March.

Registration is also now open for those wanting to attend this examination of the Chinese-led New Silk Road project and, in particular, what the Asia-Europe rail corridors are doing for Poland, China and the other stakeholders.

Karl Gheysen, Executive Director Europe Region of the Kazakhstan-based multimodal specialist, KZT Express, will deliver the the first key presentation on day one of the summit, Tuesday March 21. Sandra Gehenot, Freight Director at the International Union of Railways (UIC), will also be there, examining the link between the Silk Road and Europe’s rail freight corridors. Day one will begin with a technical visit, giving delegates a behind-the-scenes look at Poland’s logistical chains.

Day two (March 22) will see Dr Klara Paardenkooper, Senior Lecturer at Rotterdam Business School, look at how ‘blockchain’ technology can benefit the logistics chain, and then specifically its implementation within the Silk Road project. The summit is being chaired by Mel Dees, Chief Editor of NT Publishers, which produces the Netherlands-based Nieuwsblad Transport, a co-sponsor of the event. More speakers will be confirmed shortly.
