What happened at Multimodal 2014…

The UK’s biggest transport and logistics event took place last month (23-25 April) at the NEC in Birmingham. More than 7,000 visitors attended the three-day exhibition, including The Princess Royal, patron of the transport charity Transaid.

We review some of the highlights from Multimodal 2014 below, including useful links to:

  • Seminars to download – everything from warehousing and customs classification to supply chain strategies for China and the UK airports debate.
  • An interview with the show’s director Robert Jervis.
  • Images of the new 50ft container, plus other developments and innovation in the freight forwarding and logistics sector.

Roy Baker, director of International Forwarding Ltd (IFL), attended Multimodal 2014 on behalf of the company. He says: “It was an excellent opportunity to network with both customers and suppliers and to see at first hand the latest developments within the forwarding and logistics industry. Several exhibitors were demonstrating their latest computer software systems and of particular interest were programmes relating to vehicle and consignment tracking, and warehouse management.

“I was also able to take the opportunity to talk face to face with representatives from trade associations and the media and to update them regarding our latest company developments.”
