REMINDER! Harmonising freight wagon systems in international transport and their design features, UIC Global Seminar from 25 – 26 October 2011 in Sochi, Russia

  • Freight

After a successful 1st edition in 2009, the 2nd global seminar on “Harmonising freight wagon systems in international transport and their design features” will be held in Sochi, Russian Federation, from 25 – 26 October 2011.

Once again, the Joint Stock Company “Russian Railways” will host this seminar, which will provide a unique opportunity for the exchange of experience between different stakeholders, tackling both the actual state of art and the implementation of new technologies which will serve as a foundation for managing the challenges faced by companies handling freight shipments in international railway transport.

As one of the main goals is to set up unrestricted international railway freight shipments between Asia and Europe, the seminar will enjoy the participation of speakers from both Asian and European regions. Furthermore, the participation of UIC HQ experts in this event will enrich the seminar programme and provide added value for its participants.

If you are interested in participating or being a speaker to address the respective topics of the agenda, all information can be found on: http://www.uic.org/baseinfo/reunion/reunion.php?id=63032.

The number of seats is very limited and will follow a first come-first served basis, so register quickly.
