    UIC Global Rail Freight Conference

    After a series of successful editions in Delhi (2007), Saint-Petersburg (2010), Tangier (2012), Vienna (2014) and Rotterdam (2016), UIC, in cooperation with Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane S.p.A. (FS), will organise its 6th Edition of the Global Rail Freight Conference, from 27 – 29 June 2018 in Genoa, Italy.


    GRFC is one of the leading and most prestigious events dedicated to rail freight and logistics at world level. The main theme of this year’s edition is “Modal Integration at the service of Global Distribution”.


    Why Genoa? Because Genoa has historically been one of the most important ports on the Mediterranean Sea: it is currently the busiest in Italy and twelfth-busiest in the European Union. It is also one of the extremities of Rail Freight Corridor (RFC) 1 - Corridor Rhine-Alpine (Rotterdam – Genoa). Traditionally, Genoa also has an important role in the global maritime transport flows.




    A host of prominent speakers representing the political and economic sectors, international institutions, and all actors of the logistics chain, among them railways, ports and shipping lines, multi-modal operators, business and trade, will hold round table discussions and sessions on key themes such as mega trends, mental shift to foster modal shift, transcontinental corridors – including Euro-Asian corridors and the New Silk Roads – or innovation to boost productivity.


    A series of events will also provide a unique opportunity for networking and promotional activities as a professional exhibition will run in parallel.

    Global Public Transport Summit

    Global Public Transport Summit

    Stockholm: the Host City


    Every two years, UITP chooses a new setting for the Global Public Transport Summit. The next edition will take place on 9 – 12 June 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden, due to the city’s recent achievements in public transport.


    Stockholm is the city where public transport is a form of art. It is believed that there is a genuine craft in using public transport to unite city districts and the archipelago, create a better environment and dynamic growth, and improve people’s quality of life.


    The entire Stockholm region is connected by an efficient public transport system, whether above ground or below, on land or on the water.


    Almost 800,000 Stockholmers use the ever-growing transport network every day, and the percentage of people travelling on public transport vs those travelling by car has increased since the turn of the century, with 49% of all journeys within the county now made by public transport.
