About the Forum
About Black and Caspian Freight Forum
Today, geopolitical conditions and the sanctions in the region are forcing logistics companies and cargo owners to make active use of the transport corridors that pass through the territories of the Black and the Caspian Sea countries.
This dynamic facilitates the development of new services, routes, and infrastructure.
In addition, it stimulates the acceleration of inter-state agreements for the simplification and digitization of international transport documents circulation, transport corridors and routes, customs clearance and trade, creation and improvement of the Single Window mechanism.
All the issues mentioned earlier and more critical market updates, trends, and practical cases, You will have an opportunity to discuss with the company of Black and Caspian Seas logistics industry professionals from different segments during the Forum.
Additionally to the conference, there will also be an exhibition area and individual meeting rooms for one-to-one negotiations, which will make your participation more effective.
Within the framework of the program is planned a technical field trip to the shipyard in the Tuzla area.
Simultaneous translation En-Ru-En will be provided throughout the Forum.
