The Global Rail Freight Conference (GRFC) is a key milestone in UIC’s Calendar of freight events. The conference, which takes place every other year, is a key opportunity for addressing all strategic issues of freight development, focusing on management, products and international corridors. It aims to develop and promote exchanges and partnerships between all major stakeholders involved such as top executives and decision makers, rail and logistics professionals, customers, influential politicians and regulators, and institutions from across the globe.
The GRFC in Tangier follows the first two GRFC successfully held in Delhi (2007) and in St Petersburg (2010). Both events attracted several hundred participants, including all the main stakeholders from the freight and logistics sectors (the representatives of 40 countries took part in the 2010 conference hosted in Russia).
