8th German-Russian Logistics Forum

Under the motto #LogisticsConnects, the BVL Chapter Russia together with the Logistics Alliance Germany successfully held the 8th German-Russian Logistics Forum as a hybrid event on April 13th. 200+ participants, including 80 on site in Moscow, learned in the keynote speeches and the high-level panel discussion that given the dynamic developments in the framework conditions for transport solutions between Germany and Russia, the expansion of existing and the development of new Logistics corridors and chains is of great importance. The German North Sea and Baltic Sea ports have seen significant increases in traffic to and from Russia in recent years. They are intensively develo-ping inexpensive and more environmentally friendly transport alternatives. The digiti-zation is gaining in importance for all actors and requires even more cross-border cooperation for sustainable transport chains and logistics systems of the future. After the forum was only held online last year, this time the subsequent evening reception traditionally provided the opportunity for extensive networking to exchange ideas and develop common ideas for optimizing logistics. Further partners of the forum were the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the ports of Hamburg and Mukran, Bremino and the LUNO group. Traditionally, we hold our forum parallel to TransRussia, which took place for the 25th time this year. 13,000+ specialists came to find out about new logistics offers and supply chain solutions from 215 exhibitors from 22 countries exhibited, including Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Hungary, Germany, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Mongolia ... 50 companies took part for the first time. Reunion with many colleagues, business partners and friends after long months of abstinence - Great feeling!
