RailFreight On Tour-The Lithuanian Edition ready to launch

Almost a month is left until the first edition of the RailFreight On Tour concept kicks off. The Lithuanian Edition takes place in Vilnius on 14 and 15 June. What should you expect from it, and why should you join?

RailFreight On Tour-The Lithuanian Edition will navigate the Lithuanian rail freight market and its possibilities for domestic and international business. During the two-day event, attendees will have the chance to visit terminal locations, meet with local business representatives, reserve time exclusively for networking, and follow a very interesting conference programme with presentations and panel discussions.

Registrations for the event are open! You can look at the event’s programme here and register here.

Regional focus

Why launch RailFreight On Tour? Despite the globalised supply chain, business developments still take place intensely on a regional level. At RailFreight.com, we monitor these developments closely and report them. However, going to a location, exploring the business possibilities in person and meeting potential business partners or customers is invaluable.

That is why we decided to launch the RailFreight On Tour concept, where we bring local businesses and stakeholders closer to the rail freight industry. This is also what makes this event unique since attendees will be able to meet with local business representatives physically and discuss their plans and business aspirations.

Why Lithuania?

Lithuania has been on the rise recently. The country is investing heavily in rail freight, making it an attractive destination for cargo flows from multiple destinations. Lithuania can play a crossroads role between Scandinavia, the Baltics and Western or Southern Europe.

What is more, the country can launch cargo flows towards the East, with Turkey and Central Asian countries already looking at such possibilities and how to implement them. Intermodal transport is currently very high on the country’s agenda, with rail and port terminals ready to facilitate traffic and cargo forwarding.

Despite the difficulties Lithuania faced in the past few months due to geopolitical developments, like the war in Ukraine or the sanctioned Belarusian oil and fertiliser products, it has shown unprecedented robustness and agility. New routes with the European West are already launched, new partner agreements are signed, and more developments are underway.

This makes RailFreight On Tour-The Lithuanian Edition the ideal opportunity to explore the Lithuanian market, find out what it can offer to your business and, why not, meet your future partners.

Site tours and high-level speakers

During the event on 14 and 15 June, attendees will participate in a range of activities. From interesting site tours in terminal locations to a networking dinner and a conference programme covering burning issues.

The event’s speakers are high level, representing EU’s politics, the Lithuanian Railways, who are also co-hosting the event, Rail Baltica and various companies who have worked or plan to work in Lithuania. Will you also be there? Claim your ticket here!
