NEW MATCHMAKING SERVICE WILL BRING DECISION MAKERS FROM ACROSS THE SUPPLY CHAIN TOGETHER AT MULTIMODAL


Now in its 14th year, the free-to-attend show will also play host to a new freight forwarders’ village at the Birmingham NEC next week

London, UK, Monday 11th October 2021: Multimodal 2021 opens its doors next Tuesday (October 19th) with a range of new features supporting visitors and exhibitors from across the supply chain.

The free-to-attend show at the Birmingham NEC between October 19th and 21st 2021 will bring logistics decision makers together with companies offering innovative solutions to drive more efficient supply chains.

A new matchmaking service will connect shippers to each other and to exhibitors at the show, which include ONE, DP World, Maritime Transport, Malcolm Group, Dachser, and Kuehne + Nagel.

Also new for this year is the British International Freight Association (BIFA) freight forwarders’ village, bringing together providers including ASM, Rhenus, and DSV.

“We are proud to be one of the first shows to reconnect companies in the supply chain industry after so many months apart,” said Robert Jervis, Multimodal Director.

“Feedback from exhibitors and visitors is that people are eager to get back together and drive new business and we are expecting a great turnout.”

This year’s seminar programme, supported by Logistics UK, will focus on building a sustainable future for logistics.

Thought leaders from across the industry will share insight and best practice on how tech innovation and people power are driving a new business landscape.

The United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) has organised an afternoon of discussion as part of the schedule to look at going green and going digital.

“We have put together a series of informative sessions, which will deliver useful information on the way forward for businesses in supply chain,” said Jervis.

“With so much going on at the moment, it is important to stay up to date with the changing regulatory landscape and learn from each other as never before.”

Ports exhibiting at Multimodal include Calais Boulogne, Portsmouth, Bilbao, Normandy and Dunkirk, as well as Zeebrugge, Bristol, the Port of Tyne, Sunderland, Forth Ports, and Peel Ports.

Also from the maritime sector are CMA CGM, Brittany Ferries, Transfennica, and MSC.

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), as well as the Rail Freight Group, will also be attending.

The show includes two networking events, the Multimodal Awards, hosted by football legend Kevin Keegan on October 19th, and the Multimodal Mixer, hosted on the exhibition floor on the 20th.

G&W, DRS, Swain, EV Cargo, Fagan & Whalley, Howard Tenens, and Noatum will also be at the show.

About Multimodal

Multimodal 2021 will celebrate fourteen years of putting shippers, retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, importers, and exporters in front of exhibitors who offer the latest logistics and supply chain solutions.

The three-day show between 19th and 21st October 2021 will offer a unique opportunity to make valuable face-to-face contact with new prospects and existing companies.

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.

Multimodal delivers a bespoke series of seminars targeted at helping supply chains run more efficiently, as well as offering two networking events, the Multimodal Awards, and the Multimodal Mixer.

This attendance next year will be bolstered by brand new initiatives, including Match-making service to connect shippers – our VIP visitors – to each other and to exhibitors, and dedicated Freight Forwarders’ Village with logpods.
