RailFreight thinks outside the box at this new event in Bremen
HHLA and COSCO seal the deal on their shared Container Terminal Tollerort. CMA CGM acquires two Spanish terminals managed by Cosco Shipping Ports (CSP) Spain and DP World unveils its Modal Shift Programme’ aimed at encouraging customers to choose rail transportation to and from their ports.
This is a grasp of the news of the last two weeks on RailFreight.com. Why is this important for rail? Because ports and their terminals are where the big strides can be won for the rail freight industry. This is why our next event is about the connection between rail, terminal and port. When and where? The Rail Freight Connects summit in Bremen, on 6 & 7 September.
Outside the box
It is a bit outside our usual scope of activities but that is why it is a good idea. Rather than talking about the rail freight industry alone, we talk about the connection of rail with other players in the supply chain. Ports, terminals and shipping companies play a great role in the efficiency of rail transportation in the hinterland.
What is more, is that RailFreight Connects is organised simultaneously with the Project Cargo Summit, another Promedia event. Participants of both events are able to join each other’s break out sessions and meet and mingle during the shared networking sessions. In this way, synergies are encouraged even more.
So, what is on the agenda? We zoom in on the German railway network and its connection to the ports. We discuss rolling stock developments and terminal innovation. But we will also talk about the cranability of trailers, port congestion, sanctions, customs and the impact of ever-larger ships on the rest of the supply chain.
Do you want to be part of our event just a little outside the box? Register now for the RailFreight Connects summit in Bremen. The event is taking place on 6 & 7 September, just after the summer holidays. Be sure to get your seat secured!
