PROMIT Seminar - Connecting Europe and Asia with Trans Siberian Rail

Event date


PROMIT is a Coordination Action funded by the European Commission, under the 6th Framework Programme, aimed at accelerating improvements and implementation of intermodal freight transport technologies and procedures, and helping promote Innovative Intermodal Freight Transport and modal shift by creating awareness on innovations, best practices and intermodal transport opportunities.

The idea of this seminar is to promote the Intermodal Trans Siberian corridor (Europe-Asia rail link) as an alternative to the sea route. The main driver is essentially the shorter lead time compared to sea alternatives. The seminar will address on existing and new solutions along this corridor and also other rail choices. Key stakeholders (operators and users) are expected to participate.
