Real Time Ferries Conference

Come and join us in Rostock September 18 !

The first Real Time Ferries Conference at the Radisson Blu hotel in Rostock, will show how intermodal real-time information makes the whole logistics chain better for the goods, the actors and the travellers.

How does it work? What’s in it for me? Why is the European Commission behind Real Time Ferries? These and many more of your questions will be answered in the presentations and by the experts during the breaks. Meet project partners from public transportation, logistics and ferry lines, and continue to strenghten your intermodal network.

Information sharing will change how the entire maritime industry operates. Collaboration platforms with unexpected partners will appear, and so will fresh players. Modern technology will change the playing field and it is essential to adapt current business models.

Below you can find the draft of the agenda and some of the speakers. This page will be updated ongoing.
