Dear colleagues!

I would like to welcome all participants of the “PRO//Motion.1520” International Transport and Logistics Forum on behalf of JSC “Russian Railways”. Today JSC “Russian Railways” and all our partners strongly need to work on building a constructive dialogue and preserving trends in the development of freight transport market in a new reality.

This year we have supported the initiative of the Forum organizers to hold the event online in order to protect our colleagues from unnecessary risks. The “PRO//Motion” innovative digital platform has been specially created to discuss the key current solutions and strategies developed by the leading players in the railway and transport industry in the 1520 mm and 1435 mm areas during the pandemic.

Today is an opportunity to explore new opportunities and see prospects through cooperation at the local and global levels. I suggest to focus this year’s business program on the interaction of various transport modes for developing international transport corridors, increasing the efficiency of container transportation, improving digitalization processes in the transport industry, searching for system financial solutions for modernizing transport infrastructure, developing railway engineering and applying "green" technologies.

I hope the 2020 online Forum will become a significant event for all the partners and participants. The only way to work out effective solutions, which can meet the challenges of new reality, is to consider all points of view and enable interaction of all parties.

I wish you all fruitful work, constructive dialogue and productive solutions.

Dear Friends!

On behalf of the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation I would like to welcome the participants of the third International Transport and Logistics Forum «PRO// Motion.1520» hosted in the online format!

This year the whole world found itself in a difficult situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and all the industries including the transportation have faced the unforeseen challenges. With our efforts combined we managed to overcome the severities but there is a lot remaining to be done to improve the situation in the long run.

With this in mind we see the Forum as an important ground to jointly seek the answers to the most pressing issues of the times, to exchange the success stories of the problem solving and to develop the international cooperation bonds – not to mention the possibilities of building the business networks.

In line with Russia’s new Transport strategy [for 2020-2030] and the Government’s long-term policy goals in the transportation sphere we have focused our efforts on the several key issues today. It is an utmost necessity to improve the transshipment speeds of the international logistics corridors, to ensure the economically effective logistics, to lower the transportation costs, to introduce the digital services and to create the seamless logistical chains. The Forum’s program was drafted to work through each of these issues.

I am confident the Forum will become the key event for the transportation industry delegates both in Russia and abroad.

Wishing you a fruitful work at the Forum!

Dear colleagues!

I welcome the participants and guests of the International Transport and Logistics Forum "PRO // Motion.1520", which brings together representatives of the railway transport market in the 1520 area.

The current agenda and the solid composition of the participants make it possible to speak of the forum as the most authoritative platform on which, in the format of an open dialogue, issues of the development of railway transport and freight transport are discussed, new approaches to solving the most pressing problems are proposed.

This year, the Forum is dedicated to global cooperation in the face of uncertainty. It is obvious that market participants need to jointly search for new ways of development and formats of interaction in response to the challenges of the present time and the outlined transformation of the world economy.

I am sure that the solutions developed during the Forum will serve as an incentive for accelerating the processes of innovative development of railway transport and will become the basis for improving relations between shippers and transport and logistics companies.

I wish you all fruitful work and all the best.
