Our report of Translogistica’s business event in Warsaw, Poland.
The 8th International Transport & Logistics Exhibition was held from the 3rd to the 5th of November 2021. Two Adrianople Group Representatives were present for the event in Warsaw, Poland.
Translogistica is an event for the Transport and Logistics markets in Central and Eastern Europe. While the event is organized primarily in an expo format, with multiple exhibitors presenting in their stands, there was also a stage with talks in Polish.
The exhibition featured a number of interesting talks, including talks on topics such as intermodal transportation, logistic corridors, and Polish ports such as Gdansk and Gdynia. The conference also featured presentations dealing with regulatory changes and guidelines, such as the EU’s mobility package, the IATA and the CMR convention.
Exhibitor Profile and Demographics
The conference exhibitors consisted mostly of private companies, with some public representatives such as ports or the Department of Transport of the UK. Geographically, most exhibitors were either Polish companies or companies with a strong representation in Poland and EU-wide reach, with some exceptions like the Port of Koper, from Slovenia.
In terms of market sector, the majority of exhibitors are companies offering services related to logistics and warehousing, freight forwarding, intermodal and maritime transport, with less focus on air transport. A number of software, hardware and generally technology companies were present, developing product such as ITS, communication, transport and fleet management or toll collection systems.
There were not many direct connections between most of the exhibitors' businesses and SEZs, given that most companies had a B2B business model, selling directly to the companies that are located in (or not) the zones. Notable exceptions included the present ports, customs handlers working directly on the points of entry or real estate companies developing logistics centers.
In closing, Translogistica was an interesting opportunity to learn more about the Central and Eastern European transport space and the key logistic centers and routes in the region. Further, the conference provided an opportunity to understand the logistical needs of logistic centers and the businesses based in them, especially in relation to land-based transport. AG is keen on attending attend further events to stay on top of the Transport and Logistics sector.
