European Gateways Platform, a public-private partnership between authorities and companies from Romania and the Netherlands has hosted the Fifth Logistics Seminar in Bucharest on the April the 28th in the Crowne Plaza Hotel Bucharest.

The leading supply chain and logistics expert company Archicom has been requested to develop the content of the seminar in close collaboration with other companies and authorities, and with the Dutch-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and the Dutch-Romanian Network. The seminar aims at all decision makers from shippers, traders, logistics companies, distributors, and authorities and services suppliers.

Amongst these companies Wim Bosman has joined the event as a theme sponsor. Our delegation is composed of: Emil Ion, Managing Director, Thomas Bijl, Director Operations, Mario Schoofs, C.C.O. Wim Bosman Group, Floris Proost, Team Leader Sales Support and Militaru Viorel, Sales Representative. Starting 9 o'clock, Thomas Bijl, together with Michael Vette, Logistics Manager at Selgros Romania presented the Selgros business case on the vendor hub solution (concept, supplier selection, implementation and results after 1 year) implemented in Romania by Wim Bosman SRL.

Logistics efficiency has a wide range of topics, and this seminar focuses on three main issues hampering an efficient logistic solution bringing both the suppliers and the user's advantages.

  • Domestic logistics network including inter-modal solutions
  • TCO (Total Cost of Operation) and Green warehouse solutions
  • Efficient logistics soft measures (e.g. extended customs gate and VAT postponement)

Three workshops will address above topics and the aim is to generate and develop strategies that will find their way into a White Paper, which will become a cornerstone for work actions towards empowering Romania as the Eastgate Trade Hub of Europe.
