10:15 – 11:15OPENING DEBATE:
Infrastructure investments and development of international railway connections of the Port of KoperShifting freight from roads to rail is an important factor in the development of freight transport and the integration of seaports with the hinterland. As a part of the green revolution in logistics, railways are to become the basic mode of transport for bulk freight, intermodal transport and the transport of vehicles and machines. What opportunities for the development of rail transport will arise due to infrastructure investments in the Port of Koper and mainlines on the Baltic-Adriatic Corridor?
11:15 – 11:45Coffee break
11:45 – 12:45DEBATE:
Sea and land logistics of the automotive industryThe automotive industry has begun the process of moving away from fossil fuels, to which both vehicle manufacturers, parts suppliers and the logistics sector cooperating with them must adapt. The global map of car production is changing with the growing share of Chinese companies in this market. Electric vehicles bring new challenges for carriers and logistics terminal operators.
12:45 – 14:00Lunch
14:00 – 15:00DEBATE:
Intermodal transport in cold chains in the Mediterranean regionThe logistics of food products and other goods requiring controlled temperature is a complex process in terms of technology and organisation. A big challenge will be to reduce the impact of cold chains on the environment. Meanwhile, trade exchange in the food sector between Central Europe and the Mediterranean and Middle East regions is developing, for which the cooperation of the Port of Koper with logistics operators from Poland and neighbouring countries is important. The issue will be debated by experts and representatives of the TFL industry.
15:00 – 16:00DEBATE:
Short Sea Shipping within the Baltic-Adriatic CorridorThe North-South transport corridor has become a driving force for the economic integration of Europe and the region of North Africa and the Middle East. Shipping in the Baltic and Mediterranean Sea and the development of seaports in Poland and the northern Adriatic play a key role for the functioning of the corridor. What are the development prospects for this type of services?
