About the European Silk Road Summit
While the main route continues to exist, the last couple of years have given room to alternatives, bypasses and new cooperations. While the Eurasian corridor dominates, connections are made between the north and south as well. At the European Silk Road Summit 2023, we look at the main route and the Middle Corridor. We look at the CEE region and zoom in on Hungary, which has become a logistics hotspot over the years. We take a look at the multiple gateways of Europe, upcoming markets such as Central Asia and how geopolitics shape today’s corridors.
Topics on the agenda include:
✔️ Market analysis: What do the figures tell us about the Eurasian corridors?
✔️ The potential of the Central Asia connection to Europe
✔️ Achievements and bottlenecks on the main route and Middle Corridor
✔️ Nearshoring hotspots in the CEE
✔️ Hungary as a hotspot
✔️ Greece as a gateway to Europe
✔️ Geopolitics: Italy, the India-Middle East corridor and more

Infographic: Eurasian rail freight traffic in 2023
The rail freight volumes on the Middle Corridor are only a minor share of the volumes on the main route of the New Silk Road. However, the Middle Corridor volumes grew exponentially, while the main route on the New Silk Road saw only a small increase. Another such ambiguity? While business on the main route could be better, transit times have been at an all-time low (which is a good thing).
In the run-up to the upcoming European Silk Road Summit 2023, our team has gathered some interesting developments about Eurasian rail freight traffic in 2023 in a downloadable infographic.
Webinar: How to make the most out of the current Silk Road situation?
This year has certainly been difficult for rail freight forwarders focusing on the transportation between China and Europe. As the sanctions tighten, the northern route crossing Russia becomes even more complicated. Meanwhile, more developments are visible on another alternative route: Middle Corridor.
How do forwarders experience this corridor in their daily operations? Any bottlenecks that have been improved? What can we expect in the future? And most importantly, how can we make the most out of the current Silk Road situation?
In the run-up to the European Silk Road Summit 2023, the team of RailFreight.com hosted a webinar during which the above questions were discussed.
