Inland and coastal shipping - What's on?

How can inland and coastal shipping be used to a greater extent? How can a logistics concept be designed that could be realized? What is required and in what way do different actors need to take the initiative? These questions will be discussed during a seminar in Gothenburg, Sweden on 15 October. The seminar is organised as part of Interreg North Sea region IWTS 2.0 project by SSPA in collaboration with Lighthouse. 

The seminar is aimed at industry, academia and the public sector interested in the area. Different stakeholders’ perspectives will be discussed, and several initiatives and examples will be presented. The seminar is divided into three themes; “Regions and ports perspective”, “Applying new logistics solutions in practice” and “Using waterways in urban areas”.

When: 15 October 2019, 09:30 till 16:00 hrs.
Where: Lindholmen Science Park, Gothenburg, Sweden
