SFN is pleased to announce the following exhibition partnerships: 
SFN Collaborate with III International Black and Caspian Sea Transport Forum

III International Black and Caspian Sea Transport Forum (September 19-21, 2016, Batumi, Georgia) is the international event focusing on quite a few relevant questions related to the sea shipping and inland transportation in the region.
In light of unstable situation on the bulk freight market with the rates for key cargos plummeting; necessity of changes in container shipping and an array of alterations on the map of Eurasian multimodal routes, the countries of the Black and Caspian Sea regions keep strengthening their transit potential and finding new solutions to increase the cargo transportation effectiveness.
Difficult economic reality and globalization processes have made the logistic effective solutions drastically important and set new horizons for the logistic systems development and international cooperation enhancement.
Target audience:
Railways, ports and terminals, container lines, road carriers, forwarding agents, logistic companies, investing companies and banks.
Among the forum’s key topics:
The regions’ transport infrastructure development. New services and routes. Sea shipping, railway and road transportation.
Main cargoes in the regions: grain, mining and metallurgical products, mineral fertilizers. Main trends.
Train-ferries services development in the region.
Railway and Ro-Ro services. Construction of new terminals.
Container traffic. Optimization of the container lines services in the Black Sea region.
Cargos transit between the Caspian and Black Sea regions.
SFN Collaborates with Indian Clean Seas 2016

The ocean makes life on Earth possible. It nourishes our bodies and our souls. It influences our weather, fuels economies and connects distant lands. It is vast, deep, powerful and mysterious. And it’s in trouble. As 70% of the earth is covered with water, people actually assumed that all pollutants would be diluted and get disappeared. But in reality, they have not disappeared.
In present times humankind deliberately disposes waste which enters our oceans indirectly along many different pathways. Human society inevitably generates immense amounts of waste discharging millions of tonnes of problematical substances which eventually ends up in the oceans, polluting it, is a growing cause for concern.
The International Convention for the Prevention of Marine Pollution from Ships 1973, as modified by the Protocol of 1978, known as MARPOL 73/78, is the principal regulation covering protection of the marine environment.
Substances which are dispersed by burning of oil, gas, coal & industrial chemicals into the environment from the atmosphere are far more difficult to control. This is what makes it so difficult to combat pollution to improve the situation.
Ultimately, every individual nation has a responsibility to adopt appropriate measures to keep its marine environment clean.
In contrast to the marine litter situation, a more positive trend can be observed with regard to oil pollution. Fortunately, the pollution from oil has been decreasing in recent years. It is difficult to say whether this is due to more stringent controls on commercial shipping or better ship safety.
Almost any discharge from a ship / offshore installations into the surrounding environment needs to be carefully considered in advance. Not only are chemical cargo residues, oily water from machinery room, overboard disposal of garbage are strictly regulated, but funnel exhausts and ballast water have now been identified as requiring control. There is a new regulatory requirement regarding the disposal of garbage from ships. Ships will dispose their ship-generated waste to reception facilities ashore.
