Project Cargo Summit is back, this time with a new format
Over the past few months, the project cargo and break bulk sectors had to adapt their sourcing strategies and reshape the supply chain due to various world developments. Project Cargo Journal is organising Project Cargo Summit, in Bremen, Germany, to gather industry players and discuss how to best face these challenges and head off to a bright, digital future. The event will also have a whole new format with numerous interesting conferences.
Port congestion, personnel shortages, and the push for digitalisation are among the main current challenges, which will all be tackled during the Project Cargo Summit. However, there will be time to discuss the opportunities for the industry as well, such as the implementation of new technologies. The event will take place on 6 and 7 September at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bremen, you can register here. We have also gathered some of the latest project cargo facts and figures into a free downloadable infographic.
A brand new format
The Project Cargo Summit is also changing its format. Last year the event was held online, whereas previously, the event was structured as a trade show. This time things will be different, with various sessions and conferences where attendees can participate interactively. The sessions of the event will span from the analysis of the rise of new cargo types, such as wind turbines, to the increasing demand for alternative fuels, such as hydrogen.
Among the already confirmed speakers there are Andreas Menzel (Managing Director Germany at Trans Global Projects Group), Yorck Niclas Prehm (Head of Research at Toepfer Transport GmbH) and Leif Arne Strømmen (Partner and Head of Business Development at K2 Project Forwarding). There will also be dedicated plenaries concerning friend-shoring, charter rates, and the need to reduce emissions.
Collaborating with RailFreight Connects
The Project Cargo Summit will be held simultaneously and will have breakout sessions in collaboration with the RailFreight Connects, the event organised by our sister publication RailFreight.com. These sessions will offer an overview of various topics, from the impact of EU sanctions to personnel shortages, from the future of rolling stock to the so-called emergence of the giants. Don’t miss out the opportunity to meet peers and exchange knowledge.
