How big a part will road play in the future of container logistics? At this year’s Intermodal Europe conference, which takes place in the Amsterdam RAI, from 27-29 November, speakers will address the role of road in an intermodal transport strategy.
During the ‘free to attend’ conference sessions taking place on the exhibition floor, speakers including terminal operators and logistics company professionals will directly address the topic of roads within intermodal logistics operations, with key sessions examining technological innovations, sustainability and cost effectiveness.
With over 50 free conference sessions, Intermodal Europe 2012 will present the opportunity for transport, logistics and supply chain professionals to share current industry-specific challenges and solutions from all areas of the supply chain.
"High profile expert speakers will lead the conference sessions, with debate-stimulating topics, focusing on helping businesses to operate their supply chains more efficiently, with reduced costs" explains Sophie Ahmed, Event Director, Intermodal Europe 2012.
A full list of 2012 conference topics and speakers will be announced in September.
"Intermodal Europe 2012 will be a forum to discuss and share current challenges, experiences and developments in the industry, with esteemed speakers from across the transport and logistics sector" adds Sophie Ahmed. "It is an opportunity to network and do business and we are expecting an excellent turnout especially following on from the great success of Intermodal Europe 2011."
