“Build your Silk Road network, even during a pandemic.”

European Silk Road Summit – Digital edition
New Silk Road – a shock-proof corridor
The coronavirus was without doubt the main development impacting the logistics industry. An important stop on the New Silk Road, Wuhan, was ground-zero of the outbreak. Still, rail freight has proven to be resilient; a solution even to revive the disturbed supply chain between Europe and Asia. The 4th edition of the European Silk Road Summit takes places on 10 & 11 November in a digital environment.
