Transport Logistic China 2008

The third transport logistic China, taking place in Shanghai from 17 to 19 June 2008, will be 50 percent bigger than the last event in 2006. This International Exhibition for Logistics, Telematics and Transportation will be taking up 15,000 square meters of space at the Shanghai New International Exhibition Center (SNIEC). Since its premiere in 2004 transport logistic China has been constantly expanding. In 2006 it occupied one exhibition hall (10,000 square meters), now it takes up one and a half halls at the SNIEC.

This growth is going hand in hand with a broadening of the international scope of the trade fair – so far 350 exhibitors from 41 countries have registered to take part. By comparison, at the previous event in 2006 there was a total of 302 exhibitors from 33 countries. This means not only more participating countries and more space in 2008, but also a 16 percent increase in exhibitor numbers.

Following the successful premiere of the German Pavilion in 2006, there will once again be a joint German participation in 2008, this time covering over 500 square meters. And taking joint stands for the first time this year are the Czech Republic, France and the Italian regions of Friaul and Veneto. In the pavilions of The Netherlands and Belgium, both bordering the North Sea, there will be primarily companies from the marine sector.

Spain and Russia are also putting on country pavilions where their transport and logistics companies are gathered together in a joint stand. And, also for the first time, the Container Owners Association (COA) and the International Tank Container Organization (ITCO) are teaming up to organise a joint stand of exhibitors – here container owners, depot managers, maintenance and security firms and international service suppliers will be presenting their innovations for safer and more cost-effective container operations.

Air Cargo China as part of transport logistic China is also experiencing notable growth. This event is now the largest international showcase for the air cargo business in Asia. 50 of the world´s airlines and airports will be putting on presentations here on over 3,000 square metres of space. Air Cargo China 2008 will thus be 50 percent larger than the last event in 2006 like transport logistic China performed in total.

Leading air cargo companies are exhibiting here, for example: Air China, Emirates, Malaysia Airlines, Lufthansa, Saudi Arabian Airlines and Thai Airways as well as important logistics interchanges such as the International Cargo Center Shenzhen, Dubai Logistics City, the airports of Atlanta, Munich and Tianjin, plus Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals. The cargo aircraft manufacturers, market leaders Boeing and EADS, will be using this trade fair as a platform for their business in Asia. Air Cargo China is accompanied on 18 and 19 June by a two-day trade conference featuring lectures by renowned experts on the latest developments and trends in air cargo in Asia.
