Steel and project cargo forum finalised

June 11 - Questions to be addressed at the forthcoming Steel and Project Cargo forum in London include whether overseas steel production will be the future going forward?

The forum, organised by the Port of Antwerp, will also ask whether there will be less and less export and more import of steel? How will this affect transport routes? Are these assumptions correct or is the picture much rosier? What has been and still is the impact of the financial crisis and economical meltdown on the project cargo sector? What are the consequences for logistic service providers and ports?

One of the speakers at the forum is Susan Oatway, senior consultant, Drewry Shipping Consultants, who will provide an outlook for EPCs and the consequences on logistic flows.

The forum will take place at the Institute of Directors in London on June 25th and participation is by invitation, free of charge, but advance registration is required. For further information contact: Astrid Mintiens, Antwerp Port Authority T +32 3 229 64 88 or email astrid.mintiens@portofantwerp.com
