Project Cargo Summit gathers 800 professionals

On 12th and 13th September Nieuwsblad Transport organized the first edition of the Project Cargo Summit. The Project Cargo Summit, held in the RDM Onderzeebootloods in Rotterdam, combined a high level conference, an exhibition, workshops and the first Project Cargo Dinner. Thanks to the support of Port of Rotterdam and prominent companies from the project cargo and heavy lift industry it was a successful event. More than 800 professionals from nearly 30 countries were present and shared their knowledge and experience.

The 2-day conference ended with a port panel. Representatives of Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Port of Switzerland made clear they all anticipate Brexit, but the British farewell form the EU doesn’t change the need to make sure all facilities and services in their ports have to be outstanding. Therefore you need to cooperate seamlessly with all shareholders, like terminals and shipping companies, stated Emile Hoogsteden from Port of Rotterdam.
Earlier that day Roy van Eijsden, director specialist services with research and consultancy company WSP, explained how ports can facilitate growth in project and heavy lift cargo. Besides transhipment capacity, space and excellent hinterland connections he also mentioned the cooperation between all parties of a port community. In that light, organizing an event like the Project Cargo Summit is a positive signal, he said.
The will to find (strategic) partners and join forces to explore new business in project cargo and heavy lift was evident during both days of the Summit. Speakers, attendees, exhibitors and visitors made new contacts and exchanged ideas, experiences and knowledge.
After the Project Cargo Summit was finished the reactions were positive and many visitors and exhibitors already announced that they will be coming again next year. The first edition of the event revealed the need of it. In 2019 the Project Cargo Summit will be held on 11th and 12th of September in Rotterdam.
