The importance of the North-South corridor for the logistics industry

Poland has been included in the intermodal North-South corridor due to huge rail and road investments carried out over the last decade. The region of Szczecin and Świnoujście has become a logistics hub of trans-European importance. During the debate, we will discuss how logistics companies can contribute to the arrangement of the intermodal Baltic-Mediterranean corridor.

Intermodal transport in the Baltic Sea region

The Baltic Sea region is becoming an increasingly important centre for intermodal transport companies. Large investments by container terminal operators will ensure a significant advancement in the list of European logistics hubs for Polish seaports, thanks to which the Baltic Sea has been incorporated into global logistics networks. During the debate, we will consider how intermodal transport in the Baltic region will develop in the coming years and what significance it will have for logistics companies from the land hinterland of Polish ports.

15:00 – 16:00Debate
Development of seaports within the TEN-T network

The role of seaports and inland navigation will be strengthened in the coming decades as a part of the reform of the TEN-T European network of transport corridors. What opportunities will the planned investments bring for the logistics industry, including EU projects in ports? How to improve cooperation between shipowners, ports and land logistics?

16:00 – 16:30Coffee break
16:30 – 17:30Debate
Green transformation of transport and logistics as a condition for the development of the European economy

The energy crisis in Europe that followed the outbreak of the war in Ukraine and environmental protection issues force the acceleration of the green transformation of the TFL industry. Investments in zero-emission technologies in transport take a lot of money but they are a driver of innovation and can contribute to economic growth. What opportunities and challenges do renewable energy projects, hydrogen technologies, and electrification of terminal services bring to the logistics and transport industry?
