Once again, DB Schenker has been appointed official logistics provider for the PACIFIC 2017 International Maritime Exposition. DB Schenker Australia has been the exclusive on-site handling agent for the biennial event since its inception in 2000.
The Sydney-based event, held 3 – 5 October, re-wrote the record books in terms of industry participation, visiting delegations, conferences and total visitations. This year the number of participating exhibitor companies was 546 and total attendances of 16,765 over the 3 days of the event!
DB Schenker Fairs & Exhibition team has been working hard on this Project since June 2017. Our Melbourne and Sydney teams on the ground managed approximately 18 Trucks of freight from our warehouse to the ICC in Sydney. Schenker handled 1,350 cbm of empty storage and coordinated goods for more than 50 international and 90 domestic exhibitors.
Having only one day after the exhibition to move out all the freight, Schenker Fairs & Exhibition team mastered the challenge and was available around the clock at the exhibition site & trade fair stand for all our exhibitors and agents.
DB Schenker is one of the largest Fair & Exhibition logistics provider worldwide with more than 1,000 employees in 49 Countries and more than 1 Million shipments per year.
At the exhibition stand Schenker Australia had a chance to demonstrate our extensive capabilities and solutions for Marine Parts, Projects, Industrial and Defence industries. We were happy to meet our existing and potential customers at our marketing stand and discuss our new innovations and customised solutions.
DB Schenker, once again, was proud to be part of such a prestigious event which is one of the most important and leading showcase of the latest maritime and naval technologies. Schenker Australia has a long standing association with the founders of the Pacific Exhibition. The founders are also organisers for the Land Forces Exposition and the International Air Show - both of which Schenker Australia has also been the official logistics provider.
These events play a significant role in bringing Australian business closer to its customers and suppliers around the world. With vast experience generated by years of involvement, DB Schenker has established a high level of expertise and competence in developing logistical capabilities for all industries.
See you next time at the Land Forces 2018 in Adelaide, 4-6 of September 2018.
