Speakers

Inspiring 2017 edition on Innovating the hinterland

9 and 10 November we had the pleasure of receiving multiple key note speakers to address the challenges in the European hinterland. We discussed the innovations in logistics and the connections between the sea ports and inland ports and hubs. Port of Rouen was host port for this edition. Participants can download the presentations. We look back at an inspiring 2017 edition. We hope to meet you next year!

'We will all profit from sharing data. It is absurd that we do not where containers are.' Mathieu Friedberg, CMA CGM

'The new Seine-Scheldt connection is an opportunity for France but we need logistics platform along the river.' Alain Verna, ToshibaTec

'Losing one call of a big ship has a huge impact on smaller ports. Some 300.000- 400.000 TEU a year.'
Theo Notteboom, Shanghai Maritime University

Key Notes 2017

Moderator Alex Van Breedam, professor in Antwerp and CEO TRI-VIZOR addressed the challenges that lie ahead. During the first morning session a large part was reserved for speaking on the physical internet, which Alex Van Breedam defined as the end game for efficient logistics. Heinrich Kerstgens, Managing Director of Contargo, said that from his persepctive the need for infrastructure is key for using data platforms and sharing data, so called upon the ports to invest in glass fibre. Other topics discussed: new gateways to Europe, new roles for inland ports, big data, cooperation between ports, opportunities of the Seine- Scheldt connection, impact of the large container ships.
