IRAN LOGISTICS 2019
IMAG GmbH gets on board with transport and logistics trade fair in Iran
Munich, 26 June 2018 – Iran has always had a strategically important position on the trade routes between Asia and Europe. Transport and logistics therefore have an appropriately important role to play there. This is why IMAG GmbH will be organizing the specialist trade fair IRAN LOGISTICS 2019 as an international partner together with the Iranian trade fair organizer Milad e Noor. The trade fair will take place between 2-5 February 2019 at the Tehran International Permanent Fairground in the Iranian capital. Exhibitors will showcase their new products and services relating to logistics and transport over eight halls covering a total of 20,000 square meters.
The logistics trade fair was previously known as "International Exhibition of Logistics & Supply Chain, Related Industries Equipment". For its fourth edition in 2019 it will be renamed as IRAN LOGISTICS and will also be expanded at the same time. It is the only trade fair in Iran covering all forms of transportation. The exhibition categories include logistics services and equipment, warehouse equipment and material transport, distribution, information and communications systems as well as Integrated Traffic Management Systems (ITMS).
For hundreds of years, Iran was part of the legendary Silk Road, which already linked Europe with East Asia by land through Central Asia more than 2,000 years ago. With the "One belt, one road" project, China has been planning a new Silk Road since 2013, which is intended to create an intercontinental infrastructure network between China and 64 other countries in Asia, Africa and Europe. In addition to this, a further large-scale transit project makes developing Iranian infrastructure and transportation networks a necessity. In 2000, together with Russia and India, Iran initiated the North-South Transport Corridor, one of the biggest transit routes in Central Asia. In order to increase its capacity and extend its reach, the route, which connects the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf with Northern Europe, will be expanded to include an additional 10 countries.
