The Coastlink Conference will take place at the Port of Antwerp on 29-30 September 2021. Coastlink is a neutral pan-European network dedicated to the promotion of short sea and feeder shipping, and, the intermodal transport networks that support the sector.

With more than a year of pandemic restrictions this September’s Coastlink will provide you with the long overdue facility for multiple face to face business meetings in one place.

Networking and promoting industry discussion are central to the ethos of the Coastlink Conference. Further the industry-wide discussion on factors affecting the short sea shipping and logistics sectors.

Why Coastlink?


Participants include port operators, short sea & feeder shipping companies, intermodal operators, ports, stevedores, as well as freight forwarders, logistics specialists, shipping agents and industry associations.


The conference promotes debate on the challenges and opportunities affecting the industry. It is a place for industry professionals to meet and discuss future innovation, economic and environmental considerations – and develop partnerships that will help build a sustainable future.


It is a must attend event for anyone looking to maximise the utilisation and potential of shipping networks, achieve an environmentally friendly modal shift to shipping, encourage more services linking ports in European waters or to develop collaboration between shippers, ports, agents and freight organisations.
