Multimodal is firmly established as the UK, Ireland and Northern Europe’s premier freight transport, logistics and supply chain management event, Multimodal 2024 celebrates 17 years of introducing shippers, couriers and cargo owners to exhibitors in a face-to-face environment where they share and explore new and innovative ways to improve their supply chains, make them more sustainable and make cost savings. Multimodal represents every logistics sector under one roof and is characterised by key vertical sectors whilst horizontally the show covers all modes of transportation, making it incredibly valuable and accessible for shippers – whilst also affording them the opportunity to successfully meet and network with peers from other sectors, which is another key reason for their attendance. Multimodal also delivers a bespoke series of conferences, across four theatres, targeted at helping supply chains run more sustainably and more efficiently, as well as offering two networking events, the Multimodal Awards, and the Multimodal Mixer.
