MMI Asia, the regional subsidiary of Messe Muenchen (MMG), announced that The Marina Sands in Singapore will play host to the Southeast Asian edition of the Transport Logistics and Air Cargo Trade Fair to be held in September 2023. This edition is the latest in the leading series of transport logistic and air cargo shows which include, India, China, Turkey, the United States and the world’s largest logistics event and parent show in Munich. The Singapore Tourism Board and MMI Asia signed an MOA for the event including the development of new content, marketing & publicity efforts, programme & exhibition components for the trade show and areas of collaboration in industry knowledge exchange. The exhibition will act as a platform to identify challenges of the logistics ecosystem and share best practices to overcome those challenges.
In a disrupted world, the logistics industry has had to adapt, change and remain flexible in order to meet the extraordinary demands the global economies have placed on their sector. The event will enable the very best minds to meet, network and ensure they remain up to date with the latest trends and best practices in the industry.”~ Michael Wilton, MMI Asia’s Director and General Manager
The significance of global logistics, specifically air cargo, was accentuated when the pandemic struck. There is an increase anticipated in Southeast Asia’s participation in the global air trades, which further enhances the role of global cargo hubs, like the one at Changi. Thus, Singapore being the key air-cargo hub in the region, is another reason for the event to be organized here.
