Russian session at TOC Europe, June 25
For the first time in TOC history this year the conference offers a new focus on the Russian container market.
The organizers point out that “Russia’s turbulent port scene is heating up. Last September, Russia’s number one operator Global Ports Investments bought out close rival NCC Group. The $1.6bn deal follows the introduction of APM Terminals into the Global Ports shareholder base, with the Danish operator now holding around 31% of shares after the NCC acquisition”.
The Russian session topics for discussion cover the following issues:
- Key container port and shipping facts, figures and trends for Russia and the Baltics
- How is consolidation between port operators affecting Russian container trades?
- Where are the new opportunities for Russian trade with the Far East?
- Where does Russian intermodal transport need improving?
- What will be the future for Baltic feeder trades? And how is ship design set to develop?
- What will P3 or other alliances affect container trades in Russia and the Baltics?
- How to be an efficient feeder port in a the highly competitive North European Market
- What potential is there for cargo generation within the Baltic-Adriatic corridor?
- What potential is there for further intermodal development in the Baltics?
Russian companies as usual will have Solvo’s booth C48 as a meeting point during the three days of the event.
The session will be moderated by SeaNews MD Olga Fialkina. On the speakers’ panel will be Dirk Visser, Senior Shipping Consultant, Dynamar, Ruslan Alikhanov, President and CEO, FESCO Transportation Group, and Andrey Naraevskiy, Director Liner and Business Development, Global Container Service.
