The Duck Meeting is an annual transport industry event drawing nearly 2,000 people from companies operating in the maritime industry located on the Baltic coast, including Polish business hubs Gdynia, Gdańsk, Szczecin and Świnoujście, as well as many in Western Europe. There are also representatives of ports and reloading terminals, shipping, forwarding and logistics companies, production and repair shipyards, agents, brokers, appraisers, marine insurers, as well as associations and chambers of commerce that bring together companies from the transportation and logistics industry. The organizer of the meeting is the publication NAMIARY Sp. z o.o.
“The Duck Meeting is the largest and most important meeting of representatives of the maritime industry in Poland. AsstrA, as an international provider of transport and logistics services offering comprehensive sea freight solutions, is a regular participant. It is a great opportunity for us to meet with customers, ship owners, forwarders, representatives of the media, and public sector authorities,” emphasizes Wojciech Wytrykowski, Head of Europe Container Division at AsstrA.
The event consisted of both official and unstructured elements ideal for networking.
"It might seem unlikely, but the unstructured portion of the event turned out to be the most important and fruitful for us. Together with other AsstrA specialists, we had many promising and constructive conversations with numerous clients, shipowners, and partners. Events of such a format are conducive to building relationships, exchanging information on trends in the maritime industry, and establishing AsstrA as a serious newcomer offering shipowners better quality services combined with a constantly growing volume of containers.
The AsstrA Group provides a full range of logistics and transport services necessary for the execution of sea freight transport. Our specialists analyze the individual needs of every customer, take into account the unique features of the transported goods, and develop optimal transport routes through Europe, the CIS, the Baltics, the Balkans, and Central Asia. AsstrA ensures the timely transport of diverse goods regardless of the distances involved. Thanks to fruitful cooperation with international transport companies and large ports, the group has a flexible pricing policy and maintains consistently high service quality levels. The Duck Meeting is a great opportunity to tell the AsstrA story. We will certainly be back again next year,” states Wojciech Wytrykowski.
