  • Asia Pacific

The need to organise a training session about railway logistics chains was identified in the rail training strategic study conducted in the frame of the APNRTC (Asia Pacific Network of Railway Training Centres) in 2013.

Moscow State University of Railway Engineering (MIIT) and the International Union of Railways (UIC) are therefore happy to report that a three-day training course will be held in Moscow from 21 – 23 May 2014, focusing on “Rail logistics chains and private-public partnership”.

The objectives of the training are as follows:

  • Enhance general logistics knowledge of rail managers
  • Gain knowledge of international cooperation in transport corridor and logistics chains building
  • Share regional and national expertise
  • Develop professional skills to manage logistics issues as well as personal skills to study, generalise and present best practice as an individual project

The training is targeted at rail managers responsible for freight, commercial operations, infrastructure of transport corridors, as well as managers responsible for interaction with other modes of transport.
The training will be held in English. Russian interpreting will be provided if there is a sufficient number of Russian speaking participants.
