Thank you for a succesfull 14th edition Ports & Hinterland Europe
Times of crisis lead to further consolidation, optimalization and rethinking business. What we need are resillient, green and connected supply chains and hinterland logistics products, the pandemic makes this even more urgent. Creativity, collaboration and digitalization is what the logistics sector actually needs for sustainable growth and new opportunities. Plenty of topics we discussed at the C-level Ports & Hinterland Europe 2021 in Ghent, Belgium on the 2nd and 4th of March.
Thank you speakers, partners and participants for making this online edition a success!
