Messe Frankfurt, the world’s largest trade fair, congress and event organizer with its own exhibition grounds, has extended its exclusive cooperation with forwarding agents DHL Trade Fairs & Events and Agility for five years.
This is the third time in a row that both companies have been contracted as the official logistics providers for the exhibition grounds in Frankfurt. These grounds span almost 60 hectares, and feature 11 halls with over 450,000 sqm of indoor and outdoor exhibition space. Messe Frankfurt organizes close to 50 trade fairs and hosts about 250 congresses and guest events a year on its venue, including the Frankfurt Book Fair and the International Motor Show (IAA).
At the Messe Frankfurt exhibition grounds, Agility and DHL work closely to coordinate the delivery of goods to the exhibition grounds, handle customs procedures, loading and unloading, and ensure the timely delivery of exhibits and their assembly at exhibition stands. Exhibitors have access to a large warehouse for empty transport packaging and unneeded exhibition material. To facilitate and expedite the dimensioning and registration process of all incoming and outgoing shipments DHL Trade Fairs & Events implemented an innovative volume measurement solution. The solution works with camera sensors of a renowned game consoles manufacturer using 3D camera technology.
