Following last week’s reveal of the first speakers for the Project Cargo Summit Online, Project Cargo Journal has now announced that GE Renewable Energy, SAL Renewables, Broekman Logistics, Liebherr and the European Commission have also joined the Summit programme.

The second online edition of the Project Cargo Summit, which will take place on 10 and 11 February 2021, will focus on the booming offshore wind industry. What do manufacturers need from their logistics partner to realise the growth plans? What challenges does this create for freight forwarders and transport companies? And how can these challenges be met?

These are just a small selection of the questions that will be answered during this online event. Check out the full event programme below. Registration is open and you can grab your free ticket here!

One-on-one networking

In addition to sharing knowledge, events, workshops and exhibitions have always been a great place to grow your network. The Covid-19 pandemic is keeping us from meeting face to face but that does not mean quality networking sessions are postponed until further notice.

At Project Cargo Summit Online, we offer a great one-on-one networking solution to discuss the event, presentations or business opportunities with other logged-in professionals. This provides a great and informal way of meeting new people and growing your network, just like you would at a regular event.
