CeMAT 2014 to rock with new slogan

The next CeMAT, one of the world’s leading fairs for intralogistics, will take place in Hannover, Germany from May 19-23, 2014, with the slogan “Smart – Integrated – Efficient”. “Intralogistics is an enabler of efficient logistics processes and in this role has increasingly put the focus on state-of-the-art information and communication technologies,” comments Dr Andreas Gruchow, Board Member, Deutsche Messe AG. These two concepts relate to the merging of the physical world and the Internet world. This networking helps make the movement of materials and parts transparent, thereby providing a foundation for the dynamic management of logistics processes.
“As a leading trade fair, CeMAT offers the industry a platform that is internationally unique. This is where all the major intralogistics trends are presented and discussed. Indeed, the increase in digitisation will be much in evidence at CeMAT 2014. ‘Smart – Integrated – Efficient’ describes the intelligent management of integrated logistics chains across the entire value-added process and reflects the trend toward an increasingly networked world,” explains Mr Gruchow.
“This demands secure, dependable technology, complete systems and intralogistics products, as well as processors, operating elements, software, control systems and much more,” says Dr Christoph Beumer, Chairman, CeMAT Steering Committee and CEO, BEUMER Group GmbH & Co. KG.
Dr Beumer emphasises, “To a growing extent, intralogistics is all about software and processes. What’s more, we are seeing the rapid introduction of innovations in these areas. This is one reason why we welcome CeMAT’s transition to a 2-year cycle as this always allows us to present these innovations to an international audience within a narrow time frame.”
CeMAT enjoys international growthExhibitors at CeMAT 2014 will showcase their products on a gross exhibition floor area of around 160,000 square metres, which break down into five categories of technology: move and lift, store and load, pick and pack, logistics IT, and manage and service. The displays will include extensive national group presentations from Italy, France, the UK, Netherlands, Sweden and Spain, thus giving European manufacturers the opportunity to profile their intralogistics competence alongside German companies. Moreover, CeMAT is attracting significantly more attention from the BRIC nations and the United States.
Transport logistic@CeMATFollowing the successful start to cooperation between CeMAT and transport logistic in Munich, the partnership is set to continue in Hannover next year. A group presentation in Hall 27 will give logistics service providers the opportunity to present their products and services to an international industry audience.
Further expansion of port logisticsThe focus on port logistics will be strengthened at CeMAT next year. Innovative technologies and more powerful management software play an important role in enabling seaports and inland terminals to handle the growing volume of goods and materials. To supplement the port logistics display category, Deutsche Messe AG will furthermore stage a Port Forum as part of CeMAT.
