Statements about transport logistic

Read personal accounts from our trade fair participants. In 2015, transport logistic confirmed its position as the world's leading trade fair for logistics, mobility, IT, and supply chain management. The participants of air cargo europe 2015, the leading international trade fair for the air freight industry, are also extremely satisfied.

Khalid Al Rumaihi, Managing Director of the Bahrain Economic Development Board, Bahrain
“The Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB) exhibited at transport logistic for the first time. We are proud that we had the opportunity to present Bahrain—an important gateway in the heart of the Gulf that offers ideal access to the flourishing Gulf economy. We are more than pleased with the results thanks to the successful B2B meetings with German companies that have expressed an interest in establishing business relationships with Bahrain. We are looking forward to returning to the fantastically organized transport logistic in 2017—many thanks, Messe München, for the very warm welcome!”

André Banschus, Country Manager Germany, Verdion, Germany
“transport logistic is the key trade fair in the logistics world. It is where you meet the right contact persons at all decision-making levels. For us, the crucial factor is the combination of complementary companies from across the logistics industry.”

Rüdiger Beckmann, Development Manager, SEGRO
“This was the first year that SEGRO had its own stand at transport logistic. Together with our newly designed logistics real estate stand and the international trade fair team from the UK, Poland, the Netherlands, and Germany, we were able to set new benchmarks both internally and externally. We will definitely be coming back in 2017.”

Sandra Bugiel, Managing Director, ONLINE Systemlogistik für Spedition und Service GmbH, Germany
“This year, ONLINE Systemlogistik's trade fair appearance was all about celebrating a notable anniversary of our cooperation, and it was a great success. With the motto ‘20 years of delivering quality,’ we were able to present ourselves to an international and qualified trade audience as a group that is active across Europe. transport logistic therefore proved to be the ideal setting for celebrating our anniversary, and a great exchange platform, too.”

Sébastien Delaval, ‎Sales and Marketing Manager NACCO A CIT Company, France
“This is the first time that NACCO A CIT Company has exhibited at transport logistic and we are very pleased with the trade fair and its location here in Munich. The entire industry is here: maintenance services, suppliers, manufactures, and partners, and they are all offering opportunities for growth. We met most of our existing customers here and were able to make contact with a number of potential new clients. Capitalizing on business opportunities, networking, and conducting negotiations were the three most important tasks on our agenda. NACCO A CIT Company's presence at transport logistic was very important as it allowed us to show that our company is ready to see significant growth.”

Alexander Dobrindt, Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, Germany
“transport logistic is the most important trade fair in the world for the entire logistics industry and the supply chains. We demonstrate today the challenges of tomorrow. The logistics industry is in the middle of a process of digitization, which is also set to have a significant impact on added value. We are the central market in terms of logistics. With Germany as a central country in Europe and a global leader in logistics, German companies lead the way. That has been made clear once again today: We have seen a greater number of international visitors at the trade fair than ever before. The truth is that we need a strong infrastructure for the logistics chains to work so as to allow economic growth and ensure prosperity.”

Frank Dreeke, Chairman of the Board at BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG
“transport logistic marks the start of the communications campaign ‘Our word has worth’, with which BLG would like to promote its CONTRACT business area. We are therefore very pleased with the great interest generated by our stand in the last few days. Despite the difficult economic environment—with a sluggish economic recovery, structural adjustments in the eurozone, and geopolitical unrest—transport logistic received a large number of visitors. I heard people comment on this in the many meetings that took place during the trade fair. I can see a cautiously positive trend, and am heading back home to Bremen with a sense of satisfaction.”

Ingo Egloff, Executive Board, Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V.
“transport logistic is a must for every company in the logistics industry. Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V. is part of a shared stand with 50 co-exhibitors, and we are very pleased with this platform. The trade fair offers ideal framework conditions and our stand is a good way to showcase the performance of the port of Hamburg and the companies in the surrounding area, such as Brunsbüttel Ports. We were able to maintain and build on our international relationships. For example, on the second day of the trade fair, here at our stand we signed a contract to acquire our first Russian port, Port of Bronca, and our first Swedish port, Göteborg. We will definitely be back in 2017.”

Peter Frederiksen, Member of the Executive Board at Hamburg Süd
“transport logistic gives us numerous opportunities to hold meetings with our customers and potential business partners, during which we can once again demonstrate the quality and scope of the Hamburg Süd Group.”

Anne Sigrid Hamran, Port Director Oslo, Norway
“For us, transport logistic 2015 was a brilliant opportunity to meet customers, representatives of other ports, and business partners from all over the world.”

Rudolf Hämel, Managing Partner, LogReal World GmbH, Germany
“In comparison to the previous event, around 50% of the exhibitors at our stand were new. The companies recognized how important transport logistic is for sales activities and for corporate success. The majority of exhibitors are very satisfied and, thanks to the large number of new customer contacts made, expectations were exceeded. The basis of the success of the shared stand is that appointments scheduled by one exhibitor can also be of benefit to their co-exhibitors. Anyone working in logistics, either directly or indirectly, has to appear at transport logistic.”

Gero Schulze Isfort, Director of Marketing and Sales at Fahrzeugwerk Bernard Krone GmbH, Germany
“We are very pleased with the way transport logistic went. The positive atmosphere in the industry is reflected in the very high number of qualified visitors. At transport logistic, we were once again provided with proof that our strategy of presenting ourselves as a service provider for trailer-related business is very well received by the market.”

Nils Kahn, Chief Commercial Officer, MSC Germany, Germany
“Our appearance at transport logistic this year was once again a resounding success. We are once again very satisfied with our week in Munich thanks to the large number of visitors, the excellent meetings, and overall positive feedback.”

Birgit Kastner-Simon, Corporate Director Corporate Marketing, Dachser, Germany
“transport logistic is the stage for the ‘who's who’ in the international logistics industry. For us, it provided a platform on which to present our entire service portfolio. We were able to show our visitors every aspect of Dachser. We had a number of good meetings and formed some excellent contacts. For us they were four very intensive, extremely valuable days.”

David Kerr, Vice President, Etihad Cargo, United Arab Emirates
“Europe is clearly a market of great interest to Etihad Cargo because we have several city links and partnerships with other European freight companies, such as Air Serbia, Air Berlin, and Alitalia. We have been interested in air cargo europe for a while now due to the variety of freight companies represented at the trade fair. This trade fair opened up new economic possibilities for our freight business, and we value the event's targeted results.”

Rogier Laan, European Commercial Leader, TIP Trailer Services Germany GmbH, Germany
“We have taken over two companies in Germany and transport logistic is an opportunity for us to present ourselves as one company as well as to showcase our first-class trailer services to the industry. Because the trade fair focuses on the entire supply chain, we are able to meet suppliers, our strategic partners, and our customers. It is possible for us to communicate with the entire value chain and to expand our network. The visitors who came to our stand were also highly qualified.”

Nicolas Perrin, Managing Director, SBB Cargo, Switzerland
“transport logistic is without doubt the leading trade fair for the logistics industry. As the market leader in Swiss freight transport, SBB Cargo appeared together with partners on the ‘SwissMovers’ platform. Our trade fair appearance revolved around the Gotthard Base Tunnel, which is to be put into operation at the end of 2016. This new tunnel will allow for a higher number of faster and more efficient connections for rail freight transport through the Swiss Alps. For international transit traffic, this is a first important step toward a flat track through the Alps, which will significantly change the European logistics landscape. For me, a central part of the trade fair was once again establishing personal contact with customers and partners, which, in keeping with tradition, happened in a relaxed environment at our stand in the outdoor exhibition area. The ‘who's who’ of the logistics industry came together again this year in Munich.”

Dr. Karl-Friedrich Rausch, Management Board Member for Transportation and Logistics, DB Mobility Logistics AG, Germany
“We are once again using the trade fair to demonstrate our performance power and our competence with all modes of transport around the world. Our focus is on attractive industry solutions, along with our commitment to active climate protection. We have always been very satisfied with the running of transport logistic.”

Stephan Schiller, Director of Sea & Air, Hermes Transport Logistics GmbH & Hermes Logistik Gruppe Deutschland GmbH, Germany
“The transport logistic trade fair has seen some very positive developments and is now even more professional. The range of logistics options on offer has become even wider.”

Sascha Schmel, Managing Director at the Materials Handling and Intralogistics Association, German Engineering Federation, Germany
“There is a kind of symbiotic relationship between logistics and intralogistics. For us, the traditional focus of transport logistic is complemented perfectly by CeMAT@transport logistic. As a promotional supporter of CeMAT, we are of course in favor of this cooperation. We are very satisfied with the way the trade fair has gone.”

Tobias Schmidt, Regional Director Central Europe, DSV Air & Sea Holding A/S, Germany
“This year, transport logistic is once again an important part of our communications strategy. The trade fair has again met all of our expectations fully, in particular as a way of increasing brand awareness and enhancing our image, as well as improving customer loyalty and creating new business contacts.”

Stefan Schmidt, Head of Corporate Communications, Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics
“This year, transport logistic has once again proved itself to be the leading trade fair in the logistics industry. Despite the train strike, we were able to welcome a satisfactory number of trade visitors to our stand. This remarkable fact shows the high standing of this trade fair within the industry.”

Safwan Tannir, Chief Freight Officer, Aramex, United Arab Emirates
“transport logistic is one of the most important specialist trade fairs for the air freight industry. Europe is a key market for us. In the past, we have always attended the trade fair as a visitor, but this year we exhibited for the first time. For us, the trade fair is a brilliant platform on which to make contact with key companies in the freight industry, to see long-standing friends and service partners again, to meet new partners, and to open up new opportunities. We were also able to appear in Munich with Aramex Europe for the first time. We made contact with a large number of visitors at our stand in Hall A4.”

Melis Taşkın, Corporate Communication, Ekol, Turkey
For us, the transport logistic specialist trade fair is a useful platform that brings together representatives of every part of the industry, and allows new partnerships to be formed and economic relations to be developed. The result is very satisfactory.”

Klaus Tersteegen, Managing Director, SSI Schäfer/Fritz Schäfer GmbH, Germany
“The growing trend toward digitization and transparency in the supply chain requires the permanent adjustment of our intralogistics solutions to meet the needs of our users and their sectors. For this reason, it was really important for us to make contact and start a dialog with our customers at this year's transport logistic.”

Kim Van Assche, Sales Director Europe, Air Capacity Sales, DHL Express (Aviation), England
“This is the place to be when it comes to global networking within the air freight industry. No other event comes close to air cargo europe and transport logistic.”

Dr. Alexis von Hoensbroech, Member of the Executive Board for Products and Sales, Lufthansa Cargo, Germany
“The four days we spent at transport logistic were very intensive for us and all the team at Lufthansa Cargo: Being visible, running meetings, and networking—that's what this trade fair is all about. Our open stand, located in prime position right at the entrance to the air freight hall, was a magnet for members of the public, allowing us to not only present ourselves in the best light, but also listen to what our visitors had to say. We had many successful meetings with our customers and partners, and received a lot of valuable feedback.”

Lars Wedel, Management Board Sales and Marketing, Kühne + Nagel (AG & Co.) AG, Germany
“For Kühne + Nagel, transport logistic is always an important highlight in terms of showcasing the company. This year, the focus was clearly on internationality. We wanted to show ourselves as a global company and become even closer to our customers with a new, modern stand concept, and this was a great success.

We were once again able to establish new customer contacts, and to strengthen and build upon ties with existing customers. I am very pleased with our successful appearance with our motivated trade fair team, and I would like to thank everyone involved for ensuring such fantastic organization.”
