logitrans 2016 holds up well in a tense market environment


October 16, 2016 - Between November 16 and 18, 2016 logitrans, “The International Transport Logistics Exhibition”, will be celebrating its tenth anniversary edition in the ifm Istanbul Expo Center. logitrans showcases an extensive range of products and services all along the value chain in logistics, telematics and transport. Despite the currently difficult situation in Turkey and the uncertainties about the future, logitrans is holding up well in a tense market environment. Gerhard Gerritzen, a member of the Management Board of Messe München, explains:
“Yes, we have had some cancellations. But on the other hand a high percentage of our established exhibitors are keeping faith with us. And we are even attracting applications from new international exhibitors. We are especially upbeat about the air cargo section, which is developing very well. For example, Qatar Airways is taking part, the first of the Gulf airlines to exhibit at logitrans, and that is further increasing the international scope of the show. So there are indeed also very positive trends and opportunities.” 
This is being increasingly recognized by German transport policy makers. For example, in a debate about the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) as a logistics location held on July 6, 2016, Michael Groschek (SPD), the Minister of Transport for NRW, drew attention to the shift in freight volumes from the North Atlantic to the Mediterranean. For NRW, he pointed out, the benchmark was no longer Rotterdam or Hamburg, but instead primarily Istanbul, as the bridgehead to Asia. It was therefore important to show a presence here, including at logistics trade fairs. Indeed, the level of registrations received so far is good, considering the current challenging environment. From Turkey, applications have been received from market leaders such as Arkas Lojistik, Ceynak Lojistik, Etis Lojistik, ICL Netlog, Karinca Lojistik, Omsan Lojistik, Safiport, Taha, Ulusoy and UN RORO.
