Sassnitz-Mukran, 29.01.2021 — What a busy week, packed with online events from various networks that connect Mukran Port with its competent partners!
At the start of the week, we took part at the German-British Logistics Forum. At the event organized by the "Logistics Alliance Germany e.V." association, questions and solutions on the effects of Brexit on the logistics industry were discussed. Interesting for the port with regard to the fish processing plant, which is operating at the site, as well as possible future transport flows between the British Isles and Mukran.
Afterwards, Mukran Port participated in a virtual session at the One Million Club organized by UTLC ERA with the support of CCTT. The managing director of Mukran Port Harm Sievers presented the multimodal solutions in China-Europe container transport to more than 100 other participants, which are successfully implemented jointly by Mukran Port, Bahnoperator, Port of Karlshamn and others involved. Other speakers with their qualified speeches and interesting presentations also ensured that the event was exciting and educational.
Seamlessly, we then moved on to the first official edition of "Coffee-table gossip - a virtual coffee break". At this event in the new Project Logistics Alliance format, we met specialists from our field in virtual meeting rooms with tables for 2, 4 or more to discuss the latest industry news, business cases or the pros and cons of working from home. A great opportunity to meet new people and reconnect with already known partners and friends.
Last but not least: Webinar on Capacity Building Road and Rail Agreements organized by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN ESCAP) with the support of CCTT as a part of the UN-wide Development Account Project "Transport and Trade Connectivity in the Age of Pandemics". Discussions were held on the cooperation measures required at the regional level, which may be necessary to support the formulation of crisis response proposals in Asia and the Pacific.
