The transport logistic China and air cargo China will take place in Shanghai again this year after the pandemic forced the events to take a six-year break.

The Shanghai New International Expo Centre will once again take centerstage as the place where the global logistics and air cargo industry gathers between June 25 and 27.

Around 700 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors are expected to attend the trade fairs. Covering an area of approximately 50,000 square meters, the exhibition space is almost fully booked five months before its opening day.

This is testament to the continued strong interest in the event, which is considered a key marketplace for trends and opportunities for developing business in China.

Dr Robert Schönberger, Global Industry Lead at Messe München said: “Asia’s leading trade fair for logistics, mobility, IT, and supply chain management is staging a comeback with the transport logistic China and its affiliate, air cargo China.

“As the business platform for the international and Chinese logistics and transport industry, we are once again creating an attractive venue for company innovations, trends, and developments and for insiders to share information with one another.”

After struggling with a lack of air freight capacity as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies are now investing more heavily in business development and the expansion of freighter fleets.

To meet the growing demand for high-tech products and cold chain logistics services to transport fresh goods and medicines, businesses want to increase their long-haul freight capacities, build international networks, and make cross-border delivery even more efficient.

The upturn in the Chinese e-commerce market is also allowing more and more Chinese logistics companies to step onto the international stage, offering additional opportunities for greater cooperation in China and worldwide.

The transport logistic China and air cargo China will cover all areas of logistics along the supply chain, as well as sea, air, road, and rail transport.

Logistics solutions for perishable goods, logistics parks and real estate, logistics IT and equipment and vehicles will be separate focal points.

Wolfgang Meier, President of Silk Way West Airlines, remarked: “Our three hubs in Zhengzhou, Shanghai and Hong Kong make us one of the leading cargo airlines serving the dynamic Asian market.

“We also think there is potential to increase tonnages further and add flights. That is why air cargo China has traditionally been an important platform for our company’s business success.

“It is where we meet important customers and market players from the region.”
