Capital Link – EY Webinar: “Greece – An International Freight Center” Replay Available

NEW YORK – Replays are available of the Capital Link – EY Webinar "Greece – An International Freight Center” which took place on July 8.

Greece, leveraging its strategic geographical location, along with increasing investment in upgrading its transportation and logistics infrastructure, has gone a long way toward developing its position as a global logistics hub, over the past years. However, there is still room for improvement for the country to achieve excellence. The second edition of EY's report, Greece: International Freight Center, examined the role of Greece as a competitive intermodal corridor for the European seaborne trade with Asia.

EY presented a series of area-specific recommended actions, with regards to the ports, the road network, the third-party logistics sector, air and sea freight transport, the rail network, the customs, the human capital in the transport and logistics industry, as well as the brand awareness of Greece as "an international freight center.”

The webinar showcased the multi-faceted aspects of the dynamics the Greek transport and logistics industry can capitalize on and make the most of the country's biggest competitive advantage – its strategic geographical location.

The webinar consisted of a brief presentation of ΕΥ study's key findings, followed by a one-to-one discussion with the Keynote speaker, H.E. Mr. Kostas Karamanlis, Minister of Transport and Infrastructure. Then, a panel discussion with the participation of some of the key players from the transportation and logistics market took place, and the event closed with a live Q&A session.

The speakers included Thanos Mavros, Partner EY Greece and EY Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe & Central Asia (CESA) Supply Chain & Operations Leader; Yannis Pierros, EY Greece and EY Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe & Central Asia (CESA) Mobility Leader; Dr. Athanasios Ziliaskopoulos, Chair of the Board of Directors – HRADF; Professor of Production and Logistics at the University of Thessaly; Prof. Philippos Tsalides, CEO, TRAINOSE S.A.; Franco Nicola Cupolo, Managing Director – Chief Executive Officer of THPA S.A.; and Athanasios Psathas, Chairman & CEO, THEK S.A.; CEO, ETVA VIPE S.A.
