Event description
As a manufacturer or transport company, you are pushed toward a modal shift. But what is the best strategy for your organization?

About this Event

Tackle your multimodality challenges

Multimodality and modal shift: two terms that cover so many aspects. As an organization, it’s not always easy to get hold of the information that meets your specific needs and challenges. That’s why we take a different approach: instead of us telling you what topics need to be addressed, you tell us!

Based on your (anonymous) input gathered prior to the session, experts Prof. Dr. Thierry Vanelslander (University of Antwerp) and Peter Lagey (Manager Multimodaal Vlaanderen) will prepare a high-level, tailor-made discussion.
