Multimodal 2019 celebrates twelve years of putting shippers, retailers, wholesalers, importers and exporters in front of exhibitors who offer the latest logistics and supply chain solutions. Multimodal is firmly established as the UK, Ireland and Northern Europe’s premier freight transport, logistics and supply chain management event.
Whether you are an equipment supplier, port, haulier, shipping line, 3PL or forwarder, Multimodal offers a unique opportunity to make valuable face to face contact with new prospects and existing companies. Year on year, shippers and cargo owners attend to improve their businesses; by finding ways of moving their products more efficiently and by meeting new suppliers.
Multimodal represents every logistics sector under one roof, and is characterised by key vertical sectors, including manufacturing, retail, agribusiness, chemical, automotive, electronics, FMCG, food & drink, fashion, pharmaceuticals, construction, aerospace, energy, real estate, recycling, paper/print and perishables, amongst others, whilst horizontally, the show covers all modes of transportation, including sea, road, rail, air and inland waterways.
This matrix design makes Multimodal incredibly valuable and accessible for shippers – whilst also affording them the opportunity to successfully meet and network with peers from other sectors, which is another key reason for their attendance.
With AI and blockchain the newest kids on the block in what seems to be a never-ending process of technological innovation – it is clear that our industry is on the cusp of major technological transformation. Multimodal 2019 will be embracing this shift by updating our branding and website and incorporating elements of digitisation, blockchain, AR, AI and robotics in to the Show.
And in a bid to develop the workforce that meets this technological shift, the third day of Multimodal 2019 will address training, recruitment and the skills gap which are major threats to the success of many companies, with a major focus on apprenticeships, training, re/upskilling, education and recruitment with seminars and initatives specific to this sector.
