Welcome to a day with examples, initiatives and different stakeholders perspectives that hopefully will answer questions such as: How can inland and coastal shipping be used to a greater extent? How can a logistics concept be designed that could be realized? What is required and in what way do different actors need to take the initiative? Good opportunities to network, as well as coffee and lunch are included. The seminar will be in English, free of charge and registration is needed. Welcome!
