International conference

28-29 April 2021
Novorossiysk, Russia
Good day!
We invite you to take part in “GrainLogistics 2021: Logistics of grain and oilseed exports” conference which will be held on 28-29 of April 2021 in Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Novorossiysk on the Black Sea coast. Conference will be held jointly with “ICF – International conferences” company.

In the second half of 2020 Russia exported a record 30 million tons of grain, including 25.4 million tons of wheat. Another export record was promoted by the growth of terminal capacity and the activation of rail transport. The Russian export infrastructure is reaching a new development level and today can cope with the growth of the crop and, as a result, grain exports increase. The fleet of railway grain wagons and car fleets are being updated and expanded and deep-water ports terminal facilities are being upgraded.

Thus, in the next few years, the grain transshipment capacity in Azov-Black Sea basin ports may grow by 1.6 times — up to 73 million tons / year. The expansion will be facilitated by an increase in the capacity of the port of Taman, all terminals of Novorossiysk, as well as small ports of the Sea of Azov. Russian Baltic ports can increase transshipment up to three times — up to 9 million tons — due to the construction of a port in Ust-Luga. Projects for the construction of new and expansion of existing terminals in the ports of the Caspian Sea (Makhachkala, Olya, Streletskoye), in turn, will increase the transshipment capacity from 2 million tons to 4 million tons.

On the “GrainLogistics 2021: Logistics of grain and oilseed exports” conference we will discuss current situation on the grain market and further prospects for the agroexport development.

Also, among the conference topics:

  • Grain export duties: what are the consequences for agribusiness?
  • New deep-water terminals on the Black Sea, how will logistics in the South of Russia change?
  • Export capacities development in the Baltic, Caspian and Far East
  • Grain and vegetable oil exports containerization
  • Constraints on the vegetable oils export
  • Problems and prospects of grain cargoes river logistics
  • Digital platforms as a tool for grain transportation processes optimizing
  • Grain control: what changes for exporters?
After the conference, there will be an evening reception — Grain Gala Dinner to continue conference participants communication in an informal atmosphere. On the second day, April 29, conference participants will have a sightseeing tour of the Black Sea coast, with a visit to the grain terminal and the newest winery with wine tasting. Lunch in one of the best restaurants in the south of Russia is also provided.

We will be glad to see you among the participants of the “GrainLogistics 2021: Logistics of grain and oilseed exports” conference!
