The transport logistic China and air cargo China will take place in Shanghai again this year after the pandemic forced the events to take a six-year break.

The Shanghai New International Expo Centre will once again take centre stage as the place where the global logistics and air cargo industry gathers between June 25 and 27, says an official release from Messe München, the organisers of the events.

"Around 700 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors are expected to attend the trade fairs. Covering an area of approximately 50,000 square metres, the exhibition space is almost fully booked five months before its opening day. This is testament to the continued strong interest in the event, which is considered a key marketplace for trends and opportunities for developing business in China."

Robert Schönberger, Global Industry Lead, Messe München says: “Asia's leading trade fair for logistics, mobility, IT, and supply chain management is staging a comeback with transport logistic China and its affiliate, air cargo China. As the business platform for the international and Chinese logistics and transport industry, we are once again creating an attractive venue for company innovations, trends, and developments and for insiders to share information with one another."

The transport logistic China and air cargo China will cover all areas of logistics along the supply chain as well as sea, air, road and rail transport, the release added. "Logistics solutions for perishable goods, logistics parks and real estate, logistics IT and equipment and vehicles will be separate focal points. A high-calibre conference programme will provide exhibitors and visitors with abundant information and plentiful contact opportunities to unlock market potential."

Wolfgang Meier, President, Silk Way West Airlines says: "Our three hubs in Zhengzhou, Shanghai and Hong Kong make us one of the leading cargo airlines serving the dynamic Asian market. We also think there is potential to increase tonnages further and add flights. That is why air cargo China has traditionally been an important platform for our company's business success. It is where we meet important customers and market players from the region."

Many exhibitors and visitors from large parts of Europe no longer require a visa to stay in China. Travellers from France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Malaysia can take advantage of a 15-day unilateral visa waiver. These rules have been in force since December 1, 2023 and will initially run until November 30, 2024. Visitors from Singapore and Brunei can also enter China without a visa, the release added.
