Kuehne+Nagel has announced it has been appointed official logistics provider for Multimodal 2022.
The UK & Ireland’s largest freight transport, logistics and supply chain management event is run by Clarion Events and takes place 14–16 June 2022 at the NEC, Birmingham.
As part of this partnership, Kuehne+Nagel will be the exclusive agent for onsite handling, including forklifting, storage, customs clearance, warehousing, and will assist Multimodal exhibitors with their international freight forwarding and end-to-end logistics requirements. Finding sustainable logistics solutions are an important part of the deal the partners say, as they work to reduce the show’s carbon footprint.
Mike Priestley , Kuehne+Nagel, director – expo, events & hospitality UK, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed as official logistics provider for Multimodal 2022. As a long-term supporter of the show, it’s very exciting that we will not only exhibit, but also play a pivotal role in the successful delivery of this year’s event.”
Clarion’s event director Robert Jervis added that he was “excited about the sustainable logistics options that Kuehne+Nagel were able to offer exhibitors”. This, he added, was part of a drive to reduce CO2 emissions used onsite.
Agility had been the incumbent supplier of Multimodal for a number of years. EN understands the appointment of Kuehne+Nagel is initially just for the 2022 show.
