Welcome to the website of the Market Place Seminar which UIC, the International Union of Railways, and FIATA, the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations, are jointly organising!

This year’s edition of the seminar takes place in Istanbul, Türkiye on 20-21 November 2023 under the theme "Shaping the Future of Multimodal Logistics - Connecting the Regions", with a specific focus on the Middle and Southern rail freight corridors, featuring the international organisations and private sector representatives.

Because of its geographical location, Türkiye plays an indispensable role in the Middle Corridor, which runs from Europe to Central Asia and the Caspian Sea region and is a promising alternative to existing transport corridors.

The event features four thematic sessions:

  • New opportunities in Eurasian trade from policy and investment perspectives.
  • Business perspectives on the Middle Corridor – the agile transformation of the logistics industry.
  • Business perspectives on the South Corridor – exploring new multimodal logistics solutions.
  • How UIC’s and FIATA’s global network bring tangible solutions to business challenges in the region.

The UIC-FIATA Market Place Seminars provide a business-oriented platform for all stakeholders in the logistics chain and encourage interactive and lively exchanges on transport solutions and business opportunities. The seminar features speakers from renowned companies in the logistics industry, railway undertakings, and corridor development organisations to discuss how to make the best use of rail freight corridor services.
