International Conference
«Heavy Europe 2019»

We are pleased to announce the 1st international conference «Heavy Europe» to be held on October 10-11, 2019 in Holiday Inn Hamburg – City Nord , Germany.

The conference will be focused on various aspects of project, out-of-gauge and overweight cargoes logistics in Europe.

The Baltic Sea region is strategic for delivery of oversized and heavy loads for Russia. A good part of European portion of Russia is leaning towards logistics through the regional port complexes while hosting main businesses of the basic industries, many of which tend to use imported equipment for production refurbishment. Besides, the majority of industrial cargoes for Siberia, Belarus and Central Asia countries also pass along the Baltic transport corridor. The mentioned circumstance leads to stable volume of cargo flows going through the Baltic ports on the one hand, and on the other hand, contributes to growth of competition in this sector.

Among the Conference topics:

  • Role of the German ports in project freight logistics for East and Central Europe;
  • Advantages of river shipments destined for the Baltic and Black Seas;
  • Best practices of delivering oversize loads to Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan through the regional ports;
  • Ro-Ro and container services as an alternative to bulk shipment;
  • Railway freight between China and Europe – any competition with sea transport?

The conference will be held on October 10. The next day (October 11) we plan to visit the terminals of Hamburg Port followed by a short sea trip in the port area.
