DB Schenker Rail UK is hosting its fourth Intermodal Port Conference on 8th October at the East Midlands Conference Centre and Orchard Hotel in Nottingham. The highly anticipated event explores key topics in the intermodal supply chain and is attended by industry leaders across the sector. Last year’s conference provided participants with a unique opportunity to discuss ‘The World in 2020’ and looked at the challenges that lay ahead for cargo owners, ports, terminals and shipping lines. The next conference will take the debate a step further and examine how technology is reshaping our supply chain, and how we can use it to better serve our customers.
Steve Pryce, Head of Marketing, at DB Schenker Rail UK, said:
