RailFreight Summit 2022
Moving to a new reality
The new reality Poland is facing after the war on Ukraine was at the heart of the discussion at the RailFreight Summit 2022 in Warsaw, that was held on 7 & 8 September. Within a few months the role of Poland on the international rail freight market has changed completely. Whereas it used to be the gateway to Europe for traffic from Asia with the most heavily consumed border crossing on the New Silk Road, it needs to reinvent itself today as a result of the war in Ukraine. It was a record-breaking edition with over 300 delegates.
The next edition takes place on 6 and 7 September.

Infographic | Volumes on the New Silk Road
For the first time in over a decade of stable and continuous growth, rail freight traffic between China and Europe is experiencing a period of stagnation. In the first half of 2022, freight train trips between China and Europe witnessed a 2 per cent increase, while the amount of TEUs carried rose by 2.6 per cent.
