“The conference will cover a range of issues and innovations relating to the global container shipping and intermodal industry, as well as incorporating the newly added RORO focus,” says Sophie Ahmed, Event Director.
“To help attendees maximise their time at this year’s conference and exhibition, we have grouped conference sessions into topical focus forums: including the Alliances Debate, a Cold Chain Summit, Intermodal and RORO Port Forums, a Shipping Line Panel and the Hamburg Intermodal Summit, which is hosted by the German Promotion Centre for Intermodal Transport and, for the first time at Intermodal, will be conducted in German.”
Speaking on the issue of port congestion within the Intermodal Port Forum, Christina Prieser explains: “Events like the Intermodal Europe provide an excellent opportunity for the different players of the transport industry to meet personally and to discuss the interrelations between the different modes of transport.”
“The conference will provide a platform for visitors to hear the opinions of leading industry experts from across the globe,” explains Ahmed. “They’ll be discussing the hottest topics in the industry which I’m sure will spark insightful debate and provide attendees with knowledge that can be applied to future business strategies.”
