    We are proud to report about our nomination by one of our customers for the logistical operations of the Burfell Extension HEP Island Project. The content of delivery mainly consists of the pressure pipeline for a new 100 MW water power plant.

    The first annual meeting Antwerp 27+28.04.2017

    The Project Logistics Alliance is pleased to announce the first annual meeting, scheduled in Antwerp, Belgium this April 27th & 28th 2017.

    We first of all wish to thank you for the great support you gave us for the successful start-up of Project Logistics Alliance (PLA). We already get a coverage of 50 countries covered by 35 members within the first two weeks since we started!

    Therefore, we plan our first annual meeting earlier as expected for the 27th and 28th April 2017 in Antwerp, Belgium.

    The idea is to have the meeting following the 2 days after the Antwerp Breakbulk Exhibition/Conference, where many our members will attend to anyway, so this avoids extra traveling costs for many of you.

    On 26th evening we plan to come together for some drinks and finger-food.

    Further information will follow shortly.
