GR Logistics & Terminals
Levan Sulaberidze, CEO
The conference provides a deep market analysis. This business has become very informative. Simply moving a container from point A to point B, without having any information, could get you financial success at some point, but to turn this success into a big business, you need information. And this event is a source of information.
Igor Ulyantsev, Head of Marketing, Logistics and Business Development
The conferences held by Argus are distinguished by a large number of interesting people who attend these events, senior management of both logistics and trading companies. And, of course, the amount of information received first-hand, which is exhaustive, relevant, and just interesting to specialists.

The Argus conference is interesting from a practical point of view, namely, searching new customers. Due to the expansion of the customer base, we can diversify our shipments routes and optimize our expenses, therefore such networking as at the conference are very valuable for us.
