Road Freight Transport 2019: Challenges and Opportunities
The main goal of the second specialized conference and exhibition devoted entirely to transport logistics and trucking issues is to fill the gap in the industry-specific events that is obviously present in the sector.
Currently, Russia offers several events that address the questions of transport logistics development in one way or another, however, none of them is exclusively focused on the needs of road transport and logistics businesses.
The launch of the annual Transport Logistics and Trucking Conference is a part of a bigger project, which will also imply the Technological Innovation in Road Transport and Motor Transport Maintenance and Repair Exhibition, as well as the Trucks and Roads Award for the road transport industry representatives (established in cooperation with truckandroad.ru).
The aforementioned industry events are initiated by the Cross-Industry Expert Council on Road Transport Development (MOES) and supported by the Russian Ministry of Transport and leading road transport market players.
“Today we witness the beginning of the next and, to my mind, rather important stage of the development of the Russian transport and logistics industry,” says MOES acting chairman Boris Rybak. “The motor transport sector is evolving into an independent and influential segment of the transport and logistics market not just inside the country but even globally. This process is longing for formats that will allow to effectively discuss key problems and mold industry-wide solutions, as well as enhance positive publicity of the industry in the eyes of investors and regulating authorities and will contribute to the professional environment which will cultivate and praise the best that this business has,” he adds.
The road transport and logistics industry is facing the task of searching for and bringing in the solutions that will provide improved business performances. We need both our own ones reflecting the specific nature of the national economy as well as trasfer of the world’s best practices especially in the domain of advanced IT-solutions and cutting edge managing strategies, regulatory methods and technologies.
The importance of the agenda and the opinion diversity suggest the format of a conference which will combine traditional presentations with a large number of discussions that will be joined by both CEOs of leading motor carriers and representatives of regulating authorities, industry-oriented NGOs and associations and industry experts.
- Road freight transport logistics
- Professional standards and road transport market regulations
- Road transport insurance and safety issues
- Trucking economics
- Technological innovations in road transport
- Motor transport maintenance and repair
The event brings together: representatives of freight transport companies, logistics operators, cargo shippers, regulating authorities, industry NGOs and associations, motor vehicle and spare part suppliers, IT-providers, R&D institutes and industry experts.
The conference will be accompanied by an exhibition organized in the lobby of the conference hall. Its participants will showcase products and services in the two following areas: Technological Innovations in Road Transport and Motor Transport Maintenance and Repair.
