Register for the Market Place Seminar 2015 in Antwerp, 24 – 25 September 2015

  • Freight

UIC and FIATA, the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations, are jointly organising the 7th edition of the Market Place Seminar.

This year the seminar will be organised in Antwerp, on 24 and 25 September and will focus on “Rail Crossroads”, hosted by the Port of Antwerp, VEA (Antwerp Forwarders association) and CEB (Belgian Forwarders Association).

The Market Place Seminar aims to create a lively exchange platform for railway undertakings, freight forwarders and customers, and their cooperation with sea carriers. By bringing together all participants of the logistics chain, we would like to create an opportunity to brainstorm effective transport solutions and attractive business opportunities. As in previous years, the conference will be conducted in a highly interactive format.

We will also discuss significant topics:

  • Conjunction between sea and rail
  • Terminal operations – Moving forward
  • Railway connections - green light for hinterland traffic
  • Effects of digitalisation on logistics
