In the general infrastructure framework of any country, which should ensure the fluidity of the economic system by moving goods in import and export, ports and hinterland nodes are the “sensitive points” whose functional operation affects the efficiency of some key links in the supply chain.
In the whirlwind of globalization, the borders are reduced and the competitiveness of logistics is increasingly becoming a wider issue that requires strong policies of cooperation and integration that truly promote an approach to operate on a system and corridor logic.
The convenience to activate economies of scale and thus facilitate inevitable processes of concentration of markets has stimulated new processes of penetration into the hinterland calling attention to infrastructure such as freight villages, which can play a decisive role in accepting the goods flows and optimizing their restart to other markets.
The existence of an adequate rail network that branches off from the sea for the hinterland, the use of appropriate technological systems and tuning of all actors involved in logistics chains, become essential conditions without which it would be compromised the process of infrastructure integration.
The Hinterport project brings together different types of players representing, on a high level, all components of the supply chain. You will have the chance to meet them in order to assess together business opportunities and mutual exchange of services. The match day could be for you the occasion to promote cooperation projects, to create new or strengthen existing commercial and operative dialogues.
