Logistik & Transport will be developed further with a focus on digitalisation and future warehouse and logistics solutions. We will continue exploring the focus areas of digitalisation and robotisation and the opportunities and challenges they pose for the industry.
In the activity space, we will examine more actual cases in logistics and transport rationalisation. There will also be more conference topics focusing on e-commerce logistics, packaging, intermodal solutions, intralogistics and external logistics. In addition, we will bring in more international players and speakers to the expo and conference.
Meanwhile, we continue our longer-term development efforts to make Logistik & Transport 2018 an international expo with a focus on supply chain issues.

- Intralogistics • Digitalisation • Robotisation • E-commerce • External logistics • Material handling • Air transport • Maritime transport • Rail transport • Road transport
Focus area: Trade and e-commerce
E-commerce channels are developing at an ever faster pace in most industries. An increasing degree of digitalisation and strong growth in today’s e-commerce sector are placing ever higher demands on logistics. This requires us to adapt quickly and manage a new type of need and demand.
Logistics is an important cornerstone in building a successful e-commerce business.
Some aspects we will focus on in this area:
• Trends and driving forces in an international perspective
• Which route to choose: 3PL or in-house?
• Drop shipment
• Warehouse management
• Fast, secure and convenient deliveries
• Returns management
• Customs management
• New business models in commerce
• Last kilometre logistics
Focus area: Transportation
The right choice of transport and the interplay between transport modes are crucial factors in order for the whole logistics chain to work optimally and generate good economy. Due to growing international commerce and stricter environmental regulations, choice of transport and strategy will take on a central role. This issue will be addressed in a half-day conference and also highlighted in the expo, where the exhibitors include leading forwarding agents and transport providers.
Focus will be given to the following transport modes:
• Intermodal transport
• Multimodal transport
• International forwarding
• Transport economics
• Environmental logistics and environmental calculations
Focus area: Packaging and smart labels
Packaging is a natural part of warehouse and logistics managers’ daily work.
Everyone knows that packaging is fundamental, but awareness and knowledge need to be increased in this area. Do you want to meet more than 3,000 decision-makers looking for smart packaging solutions? Be an exhibitor at this year’s Logistics & Transport, where we will focus on the role of packaging in the logistics chain.
Some of the things our visitors are looking for:
• Smart packaging
• Euro-pallets and other standardisation concepts that give scale benefits
• Correct marking and smart labels
• Packaging for refrigerated and heated goods
• Protection, monitoring, track & trace.
Focus area: Material handling
In warehouses, cost and efficiency must be measured every step of the way. The challenge lies in raising productivity, precision and security while lowering costs. Come and learn from the large number of leading material handling experts at the expo.
