While the attention put on logistical challenges and supply chains as a result of COVID-19 largely focused on production in the manufacturing industry, the perspective of freight and transportation has not received as much attention. SwedCham is very delighted to invite three companies who all play a different role in the same value chain of transportation, in order to provide a holistic view on topics related to this area.
The webinar will be moderated by Søren Peter Gaarden, Head of Business Development and Sales Management at Scan Global Logistics, while the panelists who will share their views in the discussion are Claes Sundmark, Vice President at Port of Gothenburg, Tero Ahonen, Managing Director Greater China at Greencarrier, and Christian Ulloa, Managing Director at ICA Shanghai.
The topics to be discussed are:
