From 4-7 November, the Logistics Alliance Germany (LAG) will be in Poland for a delegation trip, making stops in Warsaw and Gdansk. Included on the itinerary is participation in the TransLogistica Poland trade fair in Warsaw.
The aim of the trip is to initiate connections and discuss cooperation opportunities with Polish companies and institutions. The focus will be on rail transport, the maritime industry, export-oriented companies and innovative approaches to digitalization.
The Warsaw leg of the trip will be led by Steffen Bilger, parliamentary secretary for the Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) and government coordinator for freight transport and logistics.
Poland is an important and fast-growing transit country and Germany’s seventh-largest trading partner, with bilateral trade rising once again to reach the €118.4 billion benchmark. Since the end of the communist era, the dynamic Polish economy has grown almost continually, with Western economic researchers projecting growth of three percent in 2019. The transport and logistics sector benefits from the country’s strategically favorable location in the heart of Europe, with direct access to both Eastern and Western European markets.
Currently, the itinerary includes the following:
- Two days in Warsaw for talks with companies and associations from the cargo/forwarding networks sector, as well as participation in the 7th TransLogistica Poland International Transport and Logistics Exhibition, with an LAG stand, tour of the fair and a specialist forum.
- Two days in Gdansk for the German-Polish Logistics Forum, organized by the LAG in cooperation with Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V. and Polish partners focused on sea freight and innovative new technologies. Also planned are talks with various companies and associations.
The trip is aimed at German companies from the logistics sector, who will have the opportunity to take part in specialist forums, introductory meetings, and B2B and roundtable discussions with a variety of potential business partners.
Participants can join for the entirety of the trip or take part in only one leg.
