Seminar: “Hong Kong & the Greater Bay Area: Shaping the Logistics of the future”

September 29 @ 15:00 - 21:30

This Event is supported by the Netherlands China Business Council
The logistic industry in China’s Greater Bay Area, Hong Kong and the Netherlands has seen major changes in recent years. Driven by the digital mindset of the consumers, the already booming E-commerce market has soared, especially after the COVID pandemic. The volume of packages sent between China, Hong Kong and the Netherlands already more than doubled between 2016 and 2020, and is expected to increase rapidly going forward. Technology, big data, globalisation and sustainability are some of the factors which impact this industry.
Join this seminar to hear how leading companies prepare themselves and find innovative solutions for these new and emerging trends to remain competitive. Find out how the logistics industry has an impact on your company and which opportunities the future brings.
Speakers include representatives of DHL, JD.com, Vanderlande Industries, the Port of Rotterdam and Vopak.
Attending the seminar is free of charge.
