News From MultiModal 2010 Transport And Shipping Show Under Way

Birmingham NEC Hosts Freight Event Once Again
Shipping News Feature

UK – Hall 4 at the NEC saw the start of Multimodal 2010, an event actively considered as a barometer of the international freight scene and it was heartening to see fresh faces with new products and services after a most depressing last twelve months in the world of shipping.

As time passes we shall review some of the new items launched at the event but major players were noticeable by their absence during a morning when old acquaintances were renewed and new alliances formed.

As usual stands range from the basic to the exotic, Freightliner even lodged a locomotive inside the hall !

The event gives even small companies in niche markets a chance to reach their target audience and representatives for services ranging from cargo lashing systems to container security and recently launched shipping routes all vied for attention.

Off to a good start it is now to be hoped that the crowds will attend for the final two days and make a success of the event.
