CeMAT and "transport logistic" team up



Hannover, Germany. Deutsche Messe and Messe München International have announced a new form of collaboration with regard to the staging of their world-leading (intra)logistics events, CeMAT and "transport logistic". "We are committed to pooling our strengths: As of 2013 Deutsche Messe will be contributing its CeMAT expertise and leveraging its industry contacts for the staging of an intralogistics showcase within "transport logistics" in Munich, while our Munich partners will be mounting a display of "transport logistic" themes at CeMAT in Hannover. Thanks to our collaboration, each of the two trade shows can provide coverage of the entire logistics value chain. It will also give our respective exhibitor bases greater and more continuous market exposure and put them in touch with a significantly wider array of potential customers," commented Dr. Andreas Gruchow, Member of the Managing Board at Deutsche Messe AG.

Dr. Wolf-Dietrich Müller, Executive Director at Messe München GmbH, underscored Gruchow's assessment by adding: "CeMAT and `transport logistic' complement each other perfectly. All around the globe, logistics is playing an ever more pivotal role, and this is leading to a major upswing in the demand for logistics equipment and solutions. Our cooperation means added value and new market opportunities for our customers. At the same time we will be helping Germany to increase its competitive edge in the international logistics marketplace."

Intralogistics showcase within "transport logistic"

At the next staging of "transport logistics" (4 to 7 June 2013), CeMAT content will enhance the show's coverage of intralogistics themes. At the next CeMAT (19 to 23 May 2014), the makers of "transport logistics" will reciprocate and round CeMAT off with full coverage of up- and downstream topics such as logistics, mobility, IT and supply chain management. The makers of both trade fairs are expecting the new cooperation to yield a great deal of long-term mutual benefit and enable them to reach out to new groups of potential exhibitors and visitors.
