The first Market Place Seminar (MPS) was jointly organised in Prague by FIATA and the International Union of Railway (UIC) in 2008. This event results from a fruitful collaboration between the two organisations and has become a flagship event. Freight forwarders and rail specialists can attend a variety of sessions addressing the realities of the rail freight industry. This provides a unique opportunity for all stakeholders to increase cooperation and develop business within the railway sector.
FIATA and UIC organised the first online industry Market Place Seminar on 14 October 2021. This year’s seminar was supported by the European Association for Forwarding, Transport, Logistics and Customs Services (CLECAT).
Multimodality was presented as a solution to several current and future supply chain challenges, with an important role played by rail in solving many current issues.
