Presenting Wonderful Activities to Celebrate CeMAT ASIA’s 20th Anniversary

In 2019, CeMAT ASIA will celebrate its 20th anniversary. Since 2000, the scale of CeMAT ASIA has continuously developed and expanded. From the first show with fewer than 100 exhibitors, it has now become one of the largest logistics equipment shows in Asia. The course along the way is also a miniature of the development of China’s logistics equipment industry. The celebration of the 20th anniversary is also a milestone in the development of China’s logistics equipment industry.

He Liming, President of China Federation of Logistics & Purchasing (CFLP) noted, “In the past two decades, CeMAT ASIA has seen the booming development of China’s logistics industry.”.

“Logistics equipment is a basic, strategic and leading industry that supports the development of the national economy. CeMAT ASIA can not only extensively enhance the direct communications between logistics enterprises and customers, but also inspire innovation in the market competition. Exhibits can not only reduce costs and increase efficiency for customers, but also provide customers with better solutions that are more in line with the trend of the times by means of intellectualization and environmentally-friendly concepts.” said Li Peigen, President of Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (CMES). During the period of cooperation between the two sides, CMES and Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai shared wisdom and suggestions for the development and growth of CeMAT ASIA, and jointly composed China Logistics Warehousing Equipment Industry Development Report(Blue Book)and organized a series of activities.
