21-22/2019 Looking inside
The key word of the day is transparency, echoing in every mode of transport, across every region and through every topical issue. Whether it’s about digital connections between carriers and service providers, calculating emissions, working out how much to invest, cooperation decisions between various players in the market – you name the field, and the word will be indispensable in it. And yet – does it offer us anything new?
It’s clear to me – the answer is no. Either two partners treat each other openly and honestly – or they don’t. If the latter applies, then there are countless possibilities to conceal unpleasant facts. Confucius already knew that the basis of trust is the prerequisite for prosperous coexistence. “If there’s no agreement on the basic principles, it is pointless to make plans with each other.”
It’s that time in our industry’s cycle again – Transport Logistic 2019 is opening its doors in Munich on 4 June, true to its biennial rhythm. Even if not every dream matures or expectations of the mega-event are fulfilled – rather like the weather these days – it nevertheless remains the international event in the best sense of the word.
If, in all the hustle and bustle and massive traffic congestion in the halls, you want to give in to your playfulness and also enjoy some refreshments, we’ll be waiting for you with open arms at our traditional place in the sun –stand 200 in hall A5.
