Advice and information on training and careers in the sector – at transport logistic 2013
The last day of transport logistic has been designated "Future Friday" – because that´s the day when the supporting program has a special focus on careers and young professionals in the logistics industry. Organized in cooperation with the trade magazine VerkehrsRundschau, the events featured will include talks and panel discussions on career paths and opportunities in the industry. The International Exhibition for Logistics, Mobility, IT and Supply Chain Management, takes place from June 4 to 7, 2013, in Munich.


The demand for qualified professionals in technical and managerial positions in the sector is still high, although no longer so acute as in recent years. At transport logistic students and school pupils will have the chance to find out about what logistics can offer them and how to get into the industry. Importantly, too, they will be able to talk direct to the companies involved in this sector. Ahead of the show, those interested in exploring these opportunities can prearrange meetings with representatives from the human resources departments of the participating companies. Then, on Friday, June 7, these meetings take place at the booths of the exhibitors concerned. Further information on how to arrange these meetings will be on the transport logistic website from April onwards.


Many young people will be looking for advice about which training or study courses offer the best start into a career in logistics. The traditional route of first pursuing a course of study, then working, is now seen as too rigid. More flexible models, where study and work are combined, can be an attractive option. In its lecture program, VerkehrsRundschau is aiming to give initial guidance to those interested in this branch of industry. The program kicks off with a useful review of the dual education programs in logistics currently being offered in higher education, to help young people choose the right course for them. The lecturer is Professor Kai Hoffmann, Director of the Logistics School at the Europäische Fernhochschule Hamburg, a university offering correspondence degree courses.


This is followed by a panel discussion on "Careers in logistics: Opportunities and limitations of a dual education program". Taking part in the panel are: Bernhard Simon, Management Spokesman, Dachser GmbH & Co. KG; Dr. Michael Krings, Managing Director, Douglas Logistik; Dr. Thorsten Klaas-Wissing, Vice-Director and Course Director of the Diploma in Logistics Management degree course at St. Gallen University; and Professor Kai Hoffmann.


Professional development and in-service training in intralogistics is the focus of a lecture organized by the German engineering association VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau e.V.) entitled "Intra-what? Intralogistics – Career chances and prospects in an exciting future-oriented sector".


As well as supporting and encouraging new entrants to the sector, the transport logistic trade show has for many years also provided a strong platform for recruiting. Exhibitors can post their current openings, free of charge, in the jobs forum at the show´s website, giving them access to the whole spectrum of trade professionals attending transport logistic.


What´s new this year is the Careers Market. Together with Logvocatus, a service platform for logistics consultation, and the sector-specific online jobs portals www., and, the show is offering advice, including on legal aspects, to those looking for their first post or to move up the careers ladder. This advice is provided on all days of the show, at the booth in Hall B5.

Increasing demand for space at Air Cargo Europe 2013

Air Cargo Europe just keeps on growing. In 2013, this established part of transport logistic will be taking up an entire hall, with 11,000 square meters of exhibition space. Already demand for space in this dedicated section is higher than at the last event. The world´s largest trade event for air cargo takes place from June 4 to 7, 2013, within the framework of transport logistic.

Over 150 companies from 30 countries have so far registered to take part. Among them are the airports of Amsterdam, Atlanta, Brussels, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Incheon, Köln-Bonn, Leipzig, Liège, Linz, Miami, Munich, Paris, Prague and Sharjah. The airlines taking part include Air China Cargo, American Airlines, Cargolux, Emirates Skycargo, Etihad, Lufthansa Cargo, MNG Airlines, Qatar Airways, Saudi Airlines Cargo, Skyteam Cargo, Turkish Airlines, Virgin Atlantic Cargo and Volga Dnepr. Aircraft manufacturers, like Boeing and EADS, are also represented at the show. In total 200 companies from the air cargo sector are expected to participate.

On the second day of Air Cargo Europe – Wednesday, June 5, 2013 – the World Air Cargo Awards will be presented. At a gala dinner, the British-based trade journal Air Cargo Week will be presenting the awards in ten categories, among them for best airport, best airfreight forwarder and best cargo airline.

The Air Cargo Europe exhibition will be accompanied by the Air Cargo Europe Conference 2013, 6th International Conference for the Global Air Cargo Industry, taking place also on Wednesday, from 10:00 to 12:30. The opening theme is "Moving with the times", which looks at how new information and communication technologies are impacting on value-added chains, business models and society. Following on from this are two panel discussions exploring in greater depth individual aspects of the opening theme.

Under the motto of "In search of innovation", and under the chairmanship of Bernd Maresch, founder of the communications agency Hans Mars, experts will be discussing innovations and their place in the air cargo sector. To what extent technological developments are necessary in the air cargo sector and how these innovations can be encouraged, are just some of the points under discussion.

In the second session, a discussion entitled "Getting the message", chaired by Simon Keeble, Publisher – Group Media Products at the A-Z Group, will focus on information exchange and transparency in the transport services sector. What information will cargo recipients need in the next few years and how well is the sector geared up for this?

Attendance at the conference is included in the price of a ticket for transport logistic.
