March 18 - Multimodal 2015 is set to be the biggest in the show's eight-year history, with over 90 new exhibitors joining a total of up to 300 logistics companies at this year's exhibition and conference from April 28-30 at the Birmingham NEC.

APL Logistics, Clipper Logistics, and DFDS are just three of the companies set to welcome over 7,800 supply chain decision makers at the transport show. Pre-registration for the free-to-attend event is already up 30 percent compared with last year.

"We are looking forward to a lively three days of networking and business opportunities for visitors and exhibitors, as well as some informative debate and useful training sessions," said Multimodal director Robert Jervis.

The Multimodal awards will feature two new categories this year - Woman of the Year and Young Logistics Professional of the Year.

Multimodal will also host 24 workshop and seminar sessions involving 70 industry professionals, including speakers from Waitrose, Boots, Lafarge Tarmac, and the co-operative.
