15 percent more space for more than 200 international exhibitors. The
transport logistic Americas & air cargo forum trade show will be held Nov.
8-10, 2022, in Miami and is the largest logistics trade show in the world this
year. Around four months before the start of the event, bookings with 75
percent are above plan. Messe München has therefore expanded the
exhibition space together with cooperation partner TIACA (The
International Air Cargo Association).

On the nearly 11,000 m² of exhibition space, from top 10 global players to
startups, around 200 companies have booked or announced their presence at the
show. Well-known logistics brands such as Ethiad Cargo, the Korean Air Cargo
Hub Incheon, Miami Airport, FedEx or Rhenus Logistics are coming. Dr. Robert
Schönberger, Head of transport logistic exhibitions at Messe München is
satisfied: “This year we will have the largest logistics trade fair event – not only in the USA – but probably worldwide. Our cross-modal supply chain approach is working. Shippers, logistics and other service providers are offering the exhibition visitors building blocks they need for stable supply chains. In the long term, we see the new show as a supply chain platform for Americas.”

Intermodal supply chains

Suppliers from around the world will gather at the Miami Beach Convention
Center. Exhibitors around the air cargo forum, founded by TIACA, form the
foundation. Logistics service providers, logistics-related services and suppliers for IT and digitization complete the spectrum. The focus will be on intermodal links with Europe and Asia as well as the North-South axis from Canada to Latin America. The exhibition expects more than 5,000 participants. Partner organizations including Americas Alliance, Neutral Air Partner or Miami-Dade Beacon Council bring forwarders and shippers from the region and Central America to the show.

International Air Cargo

As the world’s largest hub for air cargo between North and South America,
transport logistic Americas & air cargo forum are a homecoming for Miami
International Airport (MIA). The hub imports fish, flowers, fruits and vegetables and exports pharmaceutical, engineering, automotive and ICT products. Like exhibitor Incheon International (ICN) of South Korea, MIA ranks among the top 10 cargo airports worldwide. Together with fourteen other airports in the US, Singapore, Canada and Europe to date, they are showcasing air cargo solutions.

The strong north-south axis is equally evident in the airlines. Across the
Americas, exhibitors from Canada to Brazil are on hand, including AerCaribe and Latam. Ethiad is one of the air cargo brands presenting cargo flight networks via Asia, Africa and Europe. From Germany, Eurocargo and Munich Airport have already booked their space.

Fast market access

“transport logistic Americas is a perfect platform for us to engage with potential clients and network with carrier partners throughout the Americas. With our regional headquarter in Miami we intensify and establish contacts for stable supply chains via the shortest routes across all modes of transportation.

Participating in this trade fair is a great opportunity to showcase our world-class logistics services and our strong presence in the Americas,” explains Jörn Schmersahl, CEO of Rhenus Air & Ocean Americas. Many of the exhibiting
logistics companies and service providers for logistics-related services, IT and equipment, as well as the trade fair visitors, come from Florida and the
neighboring Central American countries. The firmly booked space is occupied in
part by joint stands for international digital startups, pavilions for companies from Germany, Italy as well as various associations. “Stable supply chains are more important than ever. Miami is exactly the right place as a hub between North and South. From global players to startups, we see a lot of potential for companies from Central and South America. In the long term, the fair will occupy an important place in the global event landscape. We are confident that participating at the air cargo forum Miami and transport logistic Americas, will drive direct value to our members and worldwide customer base,” says Christos Spyrou, CEO & Founder of Neutral Air Partner, a global network of leading air cargo architects and aviation specialists.
