The proximity to the highway, the modernized airport, the developed railway, or many universities which educate a qualified personnel make that the city of Gdansk is becoming a crucial business player of this part of Europe, reaching top companies and institutions, which find their place in Olivia Business Center, a center which offers a complex support in development of business, thanks to the presence of top HR, IT, financial, or consulting companies – says Agnieszka Zglinicka, Director of Project of Olivia Business Center.
The transport and logistics industry in the Baltic Sea is now in an interesting and very complex situation. The strong competition between both sectors and a wide range of environmental regulations concerning shipping in the Baltic Sea region require dynamic decisions from the TSL sector, which allow to adjust to frequent and often rapid changes. Transport Week constitutes a platform for exchange of experiences and information allowing to meet these requirements. This year’s meetings are to revolve around green solutions, modern technologies, innovative development strategies, innovative logistics as well as legal regulations and methods of financing of existing and new undertakings. We are proud that we can create the future of the TSL industry together with the partners of this event – says Alan Arent, Event Director of Actia Forum, who organizes Transport Week.
The event is organized under the patronage of the Minister of Infrastructure and Construction Andrzej Adamczyk, Minister of Marine Economy and Inland Navigation Marek Gróbarczyk, President of the City of Gdansk Paweł Adamowicz, and European institutions such as The Baltic Ports Organization (BPO), European Sea Ports Organization (ESPO) and International Port Community Systems Association (IPCSA).
