AsstrA-Associated Traffic AG, a global provider of comprehensive, end-to-end logistics solutions, is a proud sponsor of the main session “The journey towards decarbonization: progress, challenges and opportunities” on Day Two (Sept 27) at Breakbulk America 2023 in Houston. The company has a long-standing tradition of innovation in the logistics sector and is committed to sustainability and green logistics practices.
Breakbulk America is the region’s largest trade event for the project cargo and breakbulk industry. From 26-28 September attendees will benefit from unparalleled networking opportunities with project cargo owners, freight forwarders and transportation specialists. The three-day event offers industry workshops, a conference featuring leading breakbulk and project cargo experts and an exhibition showcasing a range of both international and North American companies. AsstrA-Associated Traffic AG has a significant presence at this year's event, with Colin Bagwell, Chief Operations Officer Industrial Project Logistics at AsstrA giving the opening word to the session’s roundtable with experts from Maersk, ATRI and US Maritime Administration.
“The logistics and transport sector contributes just over a third of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, making it the largest-emitting sector in numerous developed countries. At this point we all agree that a sector that makes such a significant contribution to global emissions should play a critical role in the transition to a decarbonized future, as well as adapting to the impacts of climate change. This event is truly exceptional in its ability to bring together a vast number of industry professionals in a condensed time frame. We are standing in front of the opportunity to break the deadlock and there is little time to lose if we are to meet our climate ambitions,” says Colin Bagwell, AsstrA.
We look forward to seeing you in Houston!
