PRLog (Press Release) - Sep. 10, 2012 - Conference sessions at Intermodal Europe 2012 in Amsterdam from 27-29 November, will include a heavy focus on ports and terminals, addressing some of the challenges currently faced across the sector.

“The Intermodal Europe Port Debate will see spokespeople from some of the world’s largest and most influential ports discussing current and future key issues in port development and for international maritime supply chains” says Sophie Ahmed, Event Director of Intermodal Europe 2012.

Chairing the debate will be Managing Director of The International Association for Ports and Harbors Europe Office, Fer van de Laar, who will be accompanied by a representative from the Baltic Port Organisation (BPO), as well as representatives from international ports.

Debate topics will include cooperation and partnership building, improving the efficiency of intermodal ports, financing and infrastructure investment, port security and green ports.

The Port of Amsterdam’s Director of Strategic Development, Herman Journeé, will chair a session at the event, titled ‘Inland Navigation: long-term strategies for moving more goods via accessible and navigable waterways’, which will consider the role of inland waterways in the intermodal mix. “Many companies are looking for innovative transport solutions that will help to save costs and reduce emissions” adds Sophie Ahmed. “This session will explore how rivers and canals can form an important part of these solutions.”

Elsewhere, representatives from the Global Institute of Logistics and the China Container Industry Association will be discussing port strategy and intermodal transport. Confirmed speakers include Shi Yanqui, Secretary General for the China Container Industry Association, Brendan Keating, CEO of the Port of Cork, Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics and William Yang-Lei, China Director of the Global Institute of Logistics.

The subject of hinterland transport by rail will be explored through a case study focussed on the Port of Rotterdam, presented by Hans L. Lip, Director Business Development of Rotterdam Rail Feeding B.V. The case study considers the role and structure of the Rotterdam Port Railway, as well as competitive factors, and forecasts and strategies to cope with unexpected growth.

More than 50 free conference sessions at 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.

Now in its 36th year, the conference and exhibition is considered one of the most important events in the container shipping calendar, and is attended by all levels of the global supply chain. In addition to improving their industry knowledge, visitors will meet over 100 exhibitors to see the latest products and innovations as well as network with visitors from 100 countries.
