More Exhibition Success for Ziegler UK at Multimodal 2024

The annual Multimodal exhibition, a cornerstone event in the UK’s logistics calendar, once again provided Ziegler with an unparalleled platform to showcase our evolving capabilities. Our third consecutive appearance at this prestigious gathering marked a significant milestone in our ongoing journey of growth and innovation.

This year’s three-day event was a hive of activity, with our meticulously designed stand serving as a focal point for industry professionals and curious visitors alike. Situated in a prime location near the hall’s entrance, our presence was impossible to ignore. The stand’s modern aesthetic and interactive displays drew attendees in, sparking numerous engaging conversations and fostering new connections.

At the heart of our exhibition we showcased some brand new video content, with the spotlight on both our recent expansion into a sprawling 500,000 square foot facility at the London Gateway in Essex and our continued partnership with Crystal Palace Football Club as their Official Logistics Partner. 

We also took this opportunity to continue promotion of our pioneering customs solution, Ziegler:SMART. This innovative system continues to revolutionise EU importation by eliminating VAT and clearance requirements at the point of entry, a development that garnered significant interest from attendees grappling with post-Brexit complexities.

In line with global shifts towards responsible business practices, we proudly presented our ongoing sustainability efforts which have been echoed by our latest Corporate Sustainability Report for 2024. This comprehensive document outlines our ongoing efforts and future plans in areas such as carbon footprint reduction, ethical supply chain management, and community engagement.

The Smartscan app once again proved invaluable throughout the event, allowing us to efficiently capture and manage the wealth of new contacts made. This streamlined approach to networking sets the stage for future collaborations and partnerships.

Reflecting on the exhibition, it’s clear that Multimodal served not only as a showcase for our current offerings but also as a launchpad for our future endeavours. The enthusiastic response from attendees reinforces our position as an industry leader and innovator. It was a powerful affirmation of our trajectory and a glimpse into the bright future we’re actively creating. 

As we build on this momentum, we’re excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and the positive impact we’ll continue to make in the industry. The insights gained and relationships forged at Multimodal will undoubtedly shape our strategies. We remain committed to pushing boundaries, embracing change, and continually redefining what’s possible in logistics and supply chain management. The success of our participation in Multimodal is a testament to the dedication and expertise of our team. Their passion for excellence shone through in every interaction, leaving a lasting impression on all who visited our stand.
