3rd edition of the conference "Transport without borders - railway border crossings", organised by the ProKolej Foundation, took place on 17-19 May.

The event, like the two previous editions, targeted entrepreneurs from the intermodal transport sector and professionals in cargo transport. Guests included officials from the government administration, rail infrastructure managers, border services, financial institutions, rail and business organisations, legal and regulatory specialists, and logisticians.

Wśród tematów znalazły się m.in. kwestie koordynacji i współpracy różnych gałęzi transportu, udrożnienie połączeń kolejowych, rozbudowa infrastruktury transportu intermodalnego i wzmacniania powiązań w głównych korytarzy transportowych. Dodatkowo, w ramach konferencji zorganizowany został także rejs po Porcie Szczecin, prezentacja terminali i infrastruktury przeładunkowej.

The conference discussed coordinating and cooperating between different transport methods, the improvement of railway connections, expansion of intermodal transport infrastructure and the strengthening of links in the main transport corridors. In addition, the conference included a cruise of the Port of Szczecin, a presentation of the terminals and transshipment infrastructure.

CTL Logistics Group was represented, among others, by Łukasz Grzesło, President of CTL Logistics s.r.o. , who took part in the summary debate: Development potential of the Western North-South Corridor.

Łukasz Grzesło:

"A very interesting Conference and concluding debate is behind us, where I had the pleasure to speak about the development of the Western North-South Corridor, which connects the sea ports of Szczecin, Świnoujście and Police with Silesia, the Polish-Czech border and further towards the Adriatic. This is one of the most important trade routes for CTL Logistics Group. Every day our trains travel this route, delivering goods to customers in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and even to such remote places as the Balkans and Scandinavia (rail ferry).We are using this Corridor more often and faster. Our experience shows that it is on this route that we can effectively compete with road transport and the fast Baltic-Adriatic connection for freight rail has become a reality."

We would like to thank the ProKolej Foundation for the invitation. It was an inspiring time full of concrete ideas. We believe that next year we will meet in an equally strong group.
