We are pleased to announce the 1st International Transport Week «NOVOTRANS 2012» to be held on 14 – 18 May 2012 in Novorossiysk, resort village Abrau Durso.
Despite successful geographical position of Russia and developed system of sea ports, a definite part of cargoes is sent bypassing Russian stevedores. One of the main competitors in this market is Ukraine. Furthermore, European Union has been financing TRACECA Project for several years – its main objective is to develop transit route system to Central Asia avoiding Russia.
In reply to this competition we must provide for higher quality of service in Russian ports and consequent development of throughput capacity along highways and railways. How should these tasks be implemented? What direction should our Government take and how shall we use our own transport facilities in common international network? These and other issues will be discussed at Transport Week in Novorossiysk.
«NOVOTRANS 2012» - is a unique platform combining the largest and most considerable business events in the South of Russia. The only place will boost favorable conditions for efficient communication of all parties concerned.
