Webinar: New Silk Road to Central and Eastern Europe
The Central and Eastern European (CEE) region has been gaining importance on the New Silk Road, also during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Despite the turbulent times of today, new connections were formed and new services launched. In some cases, rail has proven to be the most suitable transport mode for the shipment of essential goods.
A network of hubs such as Metrans operates has shaped the CEE region on the New Silk Road. On the 29th of May RailFreight.com organises the webinar ‘New Silk Road to Central and Eastern Europe’. During this webinar, that took place on 29th of May, Metrans elaborates on the importance of this network, and the new railway lines it offers or plans to launch in the near future.
Moreover we also analysed the New Silk Road volumes of Q1, and discussed the expectations for the months to come. Did the crucial China-Europe corridor survive the corona crisis? And which role did it play in the distribution of essential goods?
