New challenges in logistics The business of logistics is moving ever faster and having to adapt to new conditions in the market. One example is the digitalization of shopping:
The move is away from the high street and towards online sales. That steps up the requirements on the transport infrastructure in towns and cities and, as a result, also on transport policy. The two megatrends remain the digital transformation and, connected with this, the establishment of unified standards. The exhibitors at transport logistic, which takes place from May 9 to 12, 2017 at the Messe MÃ¼nchenexhibition center, will be presenting innovations that help master these challenges. Also at the fair, the supporting program, featuring 48 conference events, offers a valuable platform for knowledge transfer. All the facets of logistics, mobility, IT and supply chain management will be discussed in this program for which over 200 experts in the field will be coming to Munich to address the trade audience. transport logistic 2017 is to be officially opened by the German Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, Alexander Dobrindt.
Biggest showcase of the logistics industry
Robert SchÃ¶nberger, Exhibition Group Director at Messe MÃ¼nchen, is pleased: â€œUnlike any other event, transport logistic manages to bring together the world of logistics, industry and trade, to discuss current events and to shape the future.With the events at this fair, the experts in attendance and the exhibiting companies, we offer our trade visitors a unique program.â€ Over 2,000 exhibitors from 60 countries will be showcasing the entire spectrum of products and services in the field of logistics, on a total of 115,000 square meters of exhibition space at the eventâ€”thatÂ´s equivalent to around 15 football pitches! And, on the exhibition centerÂ´s own rail tracks, a part of the open-air site is turned into a railway station, where leading companies proudly display their locomotives and wagons.
