Tag Cloud

BILOG 2019 – The sustainable, connected and resilient road to 2030 – European and Regional perspectives.


The Forum will analyze both the regional and European dimension, giving the possibility to improve the knowledge about EU Transport Policy and EU investments on transport and maritime sector, highlighting the importance of the cohesion between all the players of the logistics chain. In the wake of the first event, the second appointment with BiLOG will be held in La Spezia on  October 16th and 17th 2019 at the LaSpeziaExpò exhibition complex.

Also this year, the idea is to organize an event that starts from the most local needs to reach the comparison with the different European realities. Thus a panel was conceived that included all the different needs of the maritime and logistics world. The theme of the event is well described by the three components chosen to define its title and which represent focal points for the development of trans-European transport networks: sustainability, resilience, and connection. The forum will analyze both the regional and European dimension, giving the possibility to improve the knowledge of the EU Transport Policy and of the EU investments in the transport and maritime sector, underlining the importance of cohesion between all the players of the logistics chain.
