Featuring some 200 exhibitors, CeMAT RUSSIA begins its three-day run on September 19th. All signs are positive, also thanks to the steadily growing demand for intralogistics solutions in Russia. According to the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), exports by German manufacturers were up last year by 40 percent, for a total of 394 million euros. This year’s CeMAT RUSSIA exhibitors include leading manufacturers such as Beumer, Bohnenkamp, Chep, Honeywell, Kaup, Manitou, PSI Logistics, SAP, Savoye, SSI Schäfer, Still, the TVH Group and Vanderlande.
“CeMAT RUSSIA has firmly established itself in the Russian trade fair market, as logistics decision-makers know they will receive tailor-made solutions for their special requirements there,” reports Krister Sandvoss, Global Director of CeMAT on behalf of the Deutsche Messe group of companies.
The market research agency M.A. Research estimates that Russia's logistics industry is expected to grow by 7.5 percent annually through 2020. Logistics hubs in the country are mushrooming – a development driven by online retailing. The Russian eCommerce market totaled 15 billion euros in sales in 2017, with annual growth of 20 percent. Bricks-and-mortar retailers are also pushing ahead with the development of their online sales channels and investing in the construction of large logistics centers. Not only Russian online retailers such as Wildberries are investing in new warehouse capacity, but Chinese companies like Alibaba as well.
CeMAT 2019 will be staged in Moscow from September 24 - 26.
CeMAT RUSSIA 2018 is organized by Moscow-based OOO Deutsche Messe RUS, a subsidiary of the Deutsche Messe group of companies, and ITE Group Plc, an English exhibition organizer with offices in 11 countries. Starting in 2019, OOO Deutsche Messe RUS will be the sole organizer of CeMAT RUSSIA.
