Prilo at transport logistic
This time Prilo Team didn’t exhibit, but we had a grand time as visitors as well! During the four days of the exhibition, we had the pleasure of seeing how industry leaders promote their business on a big scale.
Sustainability emerged as a key theme throughout the exhibition, drawing attention to the industry’s collective efforts in addressing environmental concerns. Kühne+Nagel Managing Director Tobias Jerschke praised the focus on sustainability as a strong signal for the entire industry, enabling companies to align their strategies with this crucial issue. Alessandro Cacciola, CEO at the Andreas Schmid Group, recognized transport logistic as an active catalyst in shaping the future of logistics, with sustainability playing a central role.
Current trends, such as digitization, climate protection, global supply chains, and the importance of people in the logistics field have made a list of recurring topics we’ve talked about with many logistic professionals during our time in Munich on May 10th.
