Commercial director of JSC “Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg” Alexey Vazhov spoke at the conference with a report on “Multi-purpose logistic platform – future of the port business”.

In the course of the event the experts discussed possible ways of improvement of maritime transport infrastructure of Russia and the Baltic States, cooperation of ports with ship owners, as well as the changes to be made in the transport legislation and procedures.
