Michail Stahlhut is the new President of the UIRR, Brussels

Michail Stahlhut, CEO of Hupac, is the new President of the UIRR, together with Jürgen Albersmann, CEO of Contargo, who will act as Vice-President. They were elected by the UIRR Board of Directors at its constitutive meeting on 23 May for a period of three years.


"Intermodal transport is THE solution for connecting European economies", says Michail Stahlhut, who is serving his second term on the UIRR Board. "I am pleased to be able to make an active contribution, together with the UIRR team and my colleagues on the UIRR Board, to the development of sustainable framework conditions for the growth of our sector".


The UIRR now has 50 members, representing the vast majority of intermodal transport in Europe. Founded in 1970, the association has a strong focus on the development and dissemination of standards and best practices in the areas of supply chain visibility, terminal management, wagons and all operational aspects.


Stahlhut: "There is a lot to be done to attract even more freight to climate-friendly intermodal transport - let's move forward with the standardisation and digitalisation of our sector, but also with good legislation that will allow us to achieve our growth target: first of all, the revision of the Combined Transport Directive and a regulation that supports the availability of capacity on the European rail infrastructure".
