After the success of the CemTrader events, and the subsequent Global CemTrans Conference and Exhibition on cement and clinker transport and logistics in Antwerp in June 2017, Global Cement is pleased to announce the 2nd Global CemTrans event, on global cement and clinker shipping, trade, transport and logistics, which will take place in Brussels in March 2019.

The conference will cover all aspects of shipping, trade, transport and logistics, from the cement plant silo to the final job site, in bags, big bags and bulk; in trucks, on barges, in ships, via rail including intermodal transport. The event will focus on moving cement and clinker ‘from A to B’ while optimising profitability. The event will cover global, inter-continental, regional and national markets and market trends, as well as trading of cement, clinker and SCMs.

If you are involved in cement and clinker shipping, trade, transport and logistics, then you should certainly attend the Global CemTrans Conference and Exhibition!
