Following its win at the top of the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index (LPI), Singapore will host its first multimodal logistics trade fair.
Set for 1-3 November this year, the event will focus on logistics, mobility, IT and supply chain management.
“Singapore is the gateway to the greater Southeast Asia region and the most dynamic and exciting hotspot for transport and logistics right now,” said Stefan Rummel, CEO of Messe München, the organiser of the event.
“Many global companies are already active here, and many more want to come to reap the rewards of the attractive conditions.”
The LPI ranking gave Singapore the best scores in the quality of logistics services, competence, and infrastructure categories. With its favourable geographical location on the Strait of Malacca, the city-state is home to one of the world’s most important transhipment hubs.
