This established event will bring you a range of eminent speakers from different industry backgrounds with their insights and experiences on sustainable transport and logistics.

  • Inland Waterways
Background on sector:

Transport systems have a more critical impact on the environment in terms of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. By 2050, total fuel demand in all transport modes will increase by 30% to 82% above the 2010 levels, correspondently the total CO2 emissions from the transportation sector is expected to increase between 16% to 79% (World Energy Council, 2011).

This brings a big challenge to different stakeholders in the transport sector: how to provide sustainable and green transport for the 7-billion people world with minimum possible congestion, CO2 emission, air pollution and noise generated?
