On 6-7 November 2008 the Hungarian Transportation Publishing House, with the professional backing of the Association of Hungarian Forwarding and Logistic Service Providers, organized the international conference Forwarding 2008. Port of Koper was honoured to be the main sponsor of this gathering. This was the 9th edition of this event that has become by now traditional, offering the possibility of encounters with professionals involved in this business. The venue was once again the elegant Ramada Plaza Budapest Hotel.

The summit of freight forwarders was full of major announcements and interesting presentations. An important part of the conference was also dedicated to the Hungarian-Slovenian cooperation, which is considerably strengthened by the role of the Port of Koper. The president of the port, Mr. Robert Časar and the port’s representative in Hungary, Mr. Marko Gabrijelčič both delivered presentations on the services offered by this Adriatic port. In his presentation Robert Časar expressed his hope that the global economic downturn will not have an impact on the plans and the turnover and that the Hungarian freight forwarders will continue to intensively use the Adriatic port that lies closest to Hungary, offering reasonable pricing and excellent services.
