Multimodal teams up with IWLEX

Leading logistics trade exhibitions unveil strategic partnership to add value to their respective offerings.

Multimodal, one of the UK’s biggest freight transport, logistics and supply chain management events, has joined forces with the Inside Warehouse Logistics Expo (IWLEX), which focuses on the internal logistics and warehousing sector in the UK to “elevate the value proposition for their respective communities and stakeholders”.

While the two events do not compete directly, their focus on complementary areas of the logistics industry and shared relationships with numerous industry associations should make this a synergistic alliance.

Multimodal attracts cargo owners and shippers seeking to enhance supply chains, drive sustainability, and explore innovative solutions for their transportation and logistics challenges. In contrast, IWLEX is a specialised exhibition and conference, dedicated to the internal intricacies of warehouse operations, concentrating on everything a warehouse operator requires to optimise efficiency.

Robert Jervis, Event Director at Multimodal, said: "We are thrilled to have established a partnership with Inside Warehouse Logistics Expo. Both exhibitions share progressive values and a dedicated focus on supporting the communities they serve. We are confident that this collaboration will add substantial value for our exhibitors and visitors, contributing to the ongoing vibrancy of our events."

Nairn Foster, Managing Director of IWLEX, added: "We are honoured to collaborate with the Multimodal team. Clarion are one of the world's leading event organisers, delivering innovative, market-leading events globally. Our shared commitment to inclusion, diversity, and innovation aligns seamlessly with Multimodal’s values. We anticipate a cross-pollination of ideas as we work towards creating unparalleled events in the sectors we serve."
