October 15, 2015: The ninth edition of "logitrans, International Transport Logistics Exhibition" will take place November 18-20, 2015 at the Istanbul Expo Center.
The trade show presents a broad spectrum of products and services along the entire value chain in logistics, telematics and transport and is an ideal bridge between the markets of Europe, Asia and Russia.
For the first time the show will feature "PeriLog, An International Conference on Supply Chain Management of Perishable Goods". It will focus on the themes of transport and storage of perishables and cool-chain logistics. The first part of the conference, organized by BVL International, The Global Supply Chain Network, Germany, is dedicated to "Temperature Control of Perishable Goods". In the second part, on Friday, November 19, the core theme is "Save Fuel or Food—Potentials for New Green Business Opportunities".
Both companies and end consumers are very concerned about sustainability—and the logistics sector is also increasingly demanding greater sustainability. Two key goals compete here: avoiding waste and reducing CO2 emissions. At PeriLog experts from all areas involved will be addressing this conflict and talking about concepts, solutions and new business models.

This forum by the Logistics Alliance Germany aims to bring these partners together.
