Here, decision-makers and experts from the logistics industry will share current assessments and provide valuable market insights. In addition, they will be available to participants to answer questions interactively and dis-cuss opportunities and challenges in the market.

Broad range of topics with regional focus

Each 90-minute webinar focuses on a specific region. China starts with the topic: "Chinese logistics for a growing e-commerce market". This is followed by the organizers in India with the question "When will India become a formidable power in the global air cargo market?”. Representatives from Turkey will discuss "What are the chances for Turkey to be the logistics hub of the Eurasian Region?". From South Africa, participants will learn interesting facts about "Future forward - what does it take for Africa to create a competitive landscape for air cargo?". In Europe, "A six months’ outlook - how are economy and supply chains developing?”. The USA will conclude the transport logistic exhibitions Global Webinar Day 2020 with an outlook on "Trends that will shape the growth of air cargo business in the Americas post pandemic".

In addition, virtual visitors can register for as many sessions as they wish according to their individual interests. All registered participants will have access to the recordings afterwards.
