Nieuwsflits november 2021: What’s new in the IWT sector? 📣 October newsletter from IWT Platform

Just ahead of the long weekend, let us share with you some news and interesting upcoming events. As recently announced, the ENTRANCE project Matchmaking Platform is open for registration and we encourage you to sign up to connect with other transport & mobility stakeholders. Also, save-the-date for the next ENTRANCE Digital Event on 26 November! Earlier in the same week, on 23 November, a workshop on IWT digitalization is being organised as a joint initiative of several European projects and sector organisations. Join us! We are happy to announce that another EU-funded project – PIONEERS – has been kicked-off in October, where IWT Platform joins a large and ambitious consortium of 46 partners to rethink all aspects of port operations. More details below. And if you have some time, fill in the new STEERER project’s survey ‘Scenarios on the future of the waterborne transport.’ 

To flag one particular item – take a look at the Routescanner: a new free online container routing platform where you can find the options available to ship your goods from point A to B. It provides reliable schedule information to search for an optimal solution for your cargo. Brilliant idea!

Using this opportunity, we want to spread the information about ALICE ETP currently hiring! They are looking for a Project Support & Knowledge Manager to join their team if you happen to know anyone potentially interested.
