On the initiative of the Rail Working Group, the Logistics Initiative Hamburg, together with Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V., hosted the first Rail Conference on Rail Freight Transport and Ports in June 2017, which brought together numerous experts from the rail network, rail operators, shipping companies and terminal and port operators. The response was very positive. Since then, the annual rail conference has been held alternately in Bremen and Hamburg.
The 6th rail conference will take place on Tuesday, 13 December 2022 under the title "Combined transport - between aspiration and reality".
