Welcome to the market place seminar’s website which UIC, the International Union of Railways, and FIATA, the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations, jointly organize!

The market place seminar is a platform which aims to create opportunities for increased cooperation and business development within the rail sector by offering a common platform for railway undertakings, freight forwarders and customers.

This year the seminar will be organized in Barcelona and it will focus on French-Iberian rail link – Fostering European Connectivity:

  • Development of the hinterland of the harbor of Barcelona
  • Consequences of the new UIC line and the French/Spanish border issue
  • Short Sea Shipping: competition or a complementary solution for rail freight business
  • Relationship of freight forwarders to harbours: examples of best practices

RENFE, the Spanish state railway, Fret SNCF, the French state railway and Port of Barcelona will co-organize the seminar together with FIATA and UIC. The conferences will take place on 2-3 November 2010 at the World Trade Center (seminar venue).

We would like to wish you welcome to our event and we look forward to meeting you!
