transport logistic Southeast Asia bringing the global industry together at the number one logistics hotspot

2023 05 09

Messe München is hosting the first multimodal logistics trade fair in Singapore, the transport logistic and air cargo Southeast Asia. Running from November 1 to 3, 2023, the event will be the most influential meeting place for logistics, mobility, IT, and supply chain management in Southeast Asia. Singapore, which took the top spot among the 179 countries in the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index (LPI), is leading the way, but the ASEAN countries as a whole are also gaining importance as strategic logistics hubs both now and in the future. This places transport logistic in a hotspot of the industry.

The LPI ranking gave Singapore the best scores in the quality of logistics services, competence and infrastructure categories. With its favorable geographical and geopolitical location on the Strait of Malacca, the city-state is home to one of the world’s most important transshipment hubs with its port. Handling a good 37 million TEU, Shanghai was the only port that was more successful last year. The Tuas Port, which was opened last year, is currently creating 65 million TEU of additional capacity. The Asia-Pacific region is one of the most important markets for air freight, as well. Overall, ASEAN countries are catching up with China, the largest consumer market and production location. These countries are also considered reliable partners from a strategic geopolitical perspective.

“Singapore has become an important asset in Messe München's strategic positioning, which for us extends far beyond Southeast Asia," explain Messe München's co-CEOs Stefan Rummel and Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer at a press event prior to transport logistic, which will open its doors on 9 May at the Munich exhibition centre: “The fact is: Germany still belongs to the world's top group in logistics. This is precisely why the world's leading logistics trade fair, transport logistic, is held here in Munich for many years – with multiple spin-offs in China, Turkey, South Africa and now Southeast Asia, for example. Singapore is the logistics world champion. Where else, if not here, should the latest addition to the transport logistic cluster be launched?”

“Singapore is the gateway to the greater Southeast Asia region and the most dynamic and exciting hotspot for transport and logistics right now. Many global companies are already active here, and many more want to come to reap the rewards of the attractive conditions. By offering transport logistic and air cargo Southeast Asia, we are creating a platform for shippers and transport and logistics service providers to develop and expand their business in the region. We are experiencing great interest in our new trade fair across all modes of transport,” remarks Michael Wilton, Managing Director of MMI Asia, Messe München’s regional subsidiary.

Messe München organizes leading global events for the transport, logistics, and air freight industries. transport logistic Southeast Asia is the latest in a series of flagship fairs that include India (Mumbai), China (Shanghai), Turkey (Istanbul), South Africa (Johannesburg), the U.S. (Miami), and the world’s largest logistics event in Munich (Germany).
