Join the free RailFreight Webinar: Poland, a new reality

Rail freight in Poland

Within a few months, the role of Poland on the international rail freight market has changed completely. Whereas it used to be the gateway to Europe for traffic from Asia with the most heavily consumed border crossing on the New Silk Road, it needs to reinvent itself today as a result of the war in Ukraine.

We will discuss this new role during the webinar ‘Poland, a new reality’ on Friday 19 August at 13:00 CEST. Join the free webinar and register now.

Changing reality

The route through Malaszewicze-Brest used to be the most consumed route on the New Silk Road, but after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, this was no longer a given. Companies that refrained from doing business with ur passing through Russia chose alternative routes. Due to decreasing demand, rail freight operators had to look at other options too.

Today, there seems to be a slight recovery of the New Silk Road through Poland, but what does this tell us about the near future? During this webinar, we talk to industry experts about the New Silk Road through Poland, and how it could develop over the months. Onno de Jong, transport consultant at Ecorys and Jakub Walczak, Rail Product Manager Europe at C.H. Robinson will join this discussion.

RailFreight Summit Warsaw

The discussion will continue at the RailFreight Summit Poland, which will be held on 7 & 8 September this year. The New Silk Road is one of the main topics on the programme.

The summit coincides with the inauguration of the new Hupac terminal in Brwinów, just outside Warsaw. Visitors to the event will be taken on a site tour to this terminal. During the webinar, David Aloia from Hupac will give a sneak preview of this terminal.
