The transport logistic trade fair is the leading international trade fair for logistics, telematics and transport. It brings together experts and investment decision-makers from all over the world in one place. During the four-day trade fair period (June 4th to June 7th), more than 64,000 visitors came to see the booths of more than 2,000 exhibitors from all over the world, ranging from start-ups and SMEs to large logistics players such as DHL, Lufthansa or Maersk.

Visitors and exhibitors alike had the chance to network, visit forums dedicated to specific topics, and to exchange on the latest trends and technologies shaping the industry. This year’s hot topics were disruptive technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain as well as the new Silk Road from China.

For the IT-Logistik Cluster, the trade show offered the perfect opportunity to promote the clusters activities at their booth, particularly the Block.IS project. Cluster manager Uwe Pfeil and project manager Andrea Hofmann used the opportunities provided at the trade fair to exchange with other logistics actors around the topic of Blockchain and to inform them about the upcoming activities of the Block.IS consortium. The project was positively received by companies already active in Blockchain as well as by those interested in using Blockchain for their businesses in the future. Several companies expressed their interest in taking part in the activities offered by the Block.IS consortium.
