Port centric zone launches at TOC Europe 2014

In a move that further highlights its unparalleled coverage across all areas of the logistics industry, SHD Magazine is launching a Port Centric Logistics event as part of TOC CSC Europe 2014.

PCL 2014 will take place at the ExCel exhibition centre at the heart of London’s old docklands on 24th - 26th June 2014.

Port Centric Logistics is a growing approach whereby a shipping container is unloaded at the port and its contents are then transported inland as palletised freight. Rather than transporting full containers inland – typically to the UK’s logistics ‘Golden Triangle’ – from the port by road or rail, Port Centric Logistics offers an optimised approach that can save time and money for certain supply chain models.

The concept, which eliminates much of the relatively costly inland transport section of the supply chain, can also offer a considerably reduced environmental impact, as freight is shipped directly to its point of consumption, rather than being transported to an additional location for trans-shipment.

PCL 2014 will be much more than just a trade show – the event will incorporate a high-level conference where the latest industry trends and port centric solutions will be debated. Delegates will be invited from across the spectrum of the UK logistics and supply chain industries. Exhibitors and sponsors will benefit from a number of networking opportunities that will allow them to connect with key influencers who are running supply chain operations across Europe.

PCL 2014 will provide a unique opportunity for suppliers of materials handling equipment, logistics and intralogistics services to engage with key buyers who are running distribution and transport operations located within the UK and Europe. If your company provides any of the following, then PCL 2014 is the show to exhibit at:

  • Automated handling systems
  • Conveyors
  • Cranes & lifting equipment
  • Fork lift trucks and ancillary equipment
  • Import/export services
  • IT and tracking systems
  • Loading bay equipment
  • Multimodal transport solutions
  • Port handling equipment
  • Property developers
  • Racking and storage systems
  • Supply chain solutions
  • 3PL services

PCL 2014 will target buyers from a wide spectrum of sectors, including:

  • Retailers and operators of retail distribution centres
  • Manufacturers
  • Pharmaceutical and chemical
  • Food and drink
  • 3PLs and freight forwarders.

If you are looking to engage with businesses who are running, or are considering, Port Centric operations as part of their logistics network, then PCL 2014 is the event for you. To discuss how your business can get involved, call Rob Fisher on Tel: +44 (0)207 017 6986 or email rob.fisher@informa.com.
