The Port of La Spezia launches B2B events at Fruit Logistica 2017

130ph.EnricoAmici_e.studio-6003926Within the activities of the “Fresh Food Corridors” project, from the 8th to 10th February 2017, the Port of La Spezia will attend Fruit Logistica exhibition in Berlin.

The FRESH FOOD CORRIDORS is a project co-financed by the EU (Connecting Europe Facility for Transport Program), establishing innovative logistics chains for perishable goods and connecting the Motorways of the Sea coming from non-EU countries with the railway connections that link the Mediterranean ports and the inland market of Central Europe.

Every year, FRUIT LOGISTICA covers every single sector of the fresh produce business and provides a complete picture of the latest innovations, products and services at every link in the international supply chain. It thus offers superb networking and contact opportunities to the key decision-makers in every sector of the industry. More than 2,800 exhibitors and 70,000 visitors will attend Fruit Logistica to realise their full business potential within the international fresh produce trade and to write their personal success story.

Inside the stand of the Fresh Food Corridors located in hall 1.2, the Port of La Spezia is going to organize a series of B2B meetings with the aim to promote new business opportunities on “reefer” transport improving sustainable intermodal freight services from La Spezia to its reference markets, as Northern Italy and Central Europe. The rail freight services will be more efficient, thanks to new technologies for preserving perishables on extended distances, and faster, thanks to the implementation of the Custom Single Window for the digitalization of the phyto-sanitary and customs control procedures in line with the new Italian Ports Reform.

The events will build up specific stakeholder teams, enabling the interaction between potential customers, suppliers and the whole marketplace.

La Spezia is ready, and you? Follow the Port of La Spezia initiatives towards Fruit Logistica 2017 during the next weeks!
