The LOGMOS Project organised a regional joint working group meeting on TRACECA block train pilot projects, Caspian ferry lines and logistics centres initiatives in Central Asia. This two-day event took place place in Tbilisi on 26-27 November 2013.  

The purpose of the meeting was to finalise conclusions and recommendations within the elaboration of the LOGMOS Master Plan.

For the TRACECA block train connections and maritime leg across the Caspian the following matters were in the focus of the working group: regular container block train operations between the Black and the Caspian Seas and further from/to Central Asia; status and future steps to be taken for the implementation of regular ferry operations (rail ferry and Ro-Ro) across the Caspian Sea; status of logistics platforms in Tbilisi and Caspian ports and future measures to be taken.
