European Silk Road Summit

Tuesday | 26 November 2019 - Wednesday | 27 November 2019

This event already took place

Rail traffic between Europe and China has rapidly gained popularity in recent years. What started as a single connection on the New Silk Road is now an extensive network with connections such as the Middle Corridor and the multimodal route via Kaliningrad. This offers benefits for Europe; products subjected to sanctions find their way to China, and the ports are taking a position.

Do you want to know more about the possibilities of 2019? Are you curious about the multimodal connections, paperless transport, conditioned transport or pre-customs clearing? Join the European Silk Road Summit in Venlo on the 26th and 27th of November, where trains from the Netherlands are taking the route via Azerbaijan for the first time.

Around 250 logistics specialists will attend this conference. You will meet logistics providers, operators, shippers, forwarders, from the Netherlands and other countries involved. You will gain knowledge about the latest developments, understand the routes and connections and know-how to take the business opportunities currently.

Why you should attend:

  • Despite criticism and reluctance in Europe, the possibilities of rail traffic to and from China are still increasing every day.
  • There are some serious hurdles facing the European industry, but these have given rise to viable alternatives. The Middle Corridor is an example, with Venlo taking the lead.
  • Multimodal routes are gaining popularity, despite the belief that they are too complicated. For example, the route through Kaliningrad is doing well, with a relatively young connection to the port of Rotterdam.
  • Do you want to hear the honest, raw story on the New Silk Road? Every year we find shippers keen to share their story. These stories give you a true insight.
  • This year we see more Chinese companies and institutions on the program. This also means more knowledge on the policies, investments, local cargo handling, etc.
  • Have you always wanted to see the trains depart to China or beyond? Or wander through the warehouses stored with traded products? The site visits bring you there.
