UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – One of next years premier showcases in the Middle East for the freight and logistics sector, Dubai SITL 2011, is to add an ‘Eco Logistics’ segment to its usual menu. In order to move forward and include the latest concerns of the shipping industry the organisers, Reed International Middle East, have included an ecological element to promote and highlight such things as energy reduction, improved fuel consumption and corporate responsibility for optimising environmentally friendly supply chains.

Patron of the event is no less a figure than His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, not only President of the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation, and Chairman and CEO of Emirates Group, but a charismatic International Vice President of Chelsea Football Club. The event is also supported by the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Association (FIATA), DP World and various others.

The 2011 event will now contain the aforementioned Eco Logistics element plus sections on transport and logistics, logistics real estate, information systems and technologies plus logistics infrastructure. The focus on greener issues is one which is concerning all serious players in the freight and logistics market as more customers and consumers demonstrate their insistence on more ecologically justifiable transport solutions.
