22 April 2022


The European Logistics Platform will organise a webinar on the ongoing disruptions in the maritime logistics supply chains on the 26 April hosted by MEP Caroline Nagtegaal. For more than 2 years, COVID-19 and measures related to the pandemic, such as lockdowns and border closures, have disrupted value chains and demonstrated the lack of resilience in global maritime supply chains. Shipping costs have skyrocketed, schedule reliability has dropped, and key transport nodes have become congested. Manufacturers suffer from delays in their production processes and importers and exporters face difficulties in securing cargo space on vessels and getting access to freight transport options. The event will bring together industry stakeholders who have experienced the impact of disruptions and policymakers to discuss potential relief measures that benefit all actors in the value chain. The event will also seek to debate the role of the regulator to improve resilience and enhancing competition.

Speakers include Olaf Merk from the International Transport Forum, Jordi Torrent from the Port of Barcelona, Roderick de la Houssaye, Director/Owner, NedCargo and Magda Kopczynska Director Waterborne Transport of DG MOVE.  MEP Caroline Nagtegaal will host the event with an opening address.

Registration is still possible here.
