MEGATRANS2018 will bring together the entire supply chain under one roof for the first time, to help facilitate national and international collaboration. Freight operators play a vital role in this supply chain and will play an important part of the tradeshow.
With Visa Global Logistics leading the way, MEGATRANS2018 offers a unique platform for fleets and freight operators to engage with their potential customers across a range of industries spanning manufacturing, retail, FMCG, food and beverage manufacturing, mining, as well as with importers and exporters.
“This is two-pronged approach for us. Given our innovative approach to business, MEGATRANS2018 provides us a platform to be seen as market leaders, and branding at an event like this is crucial. But more importantly, to be able to engage with our core audience of importers and exporters, as well as with the key buyers of freight services across such a wide range of industries – this is such a strong value opportunity for us,” says Visa Global Logistics CEO Simon Hardwidge.
“We understand that as a freight services business we play an important and instrumental role in the freight and logistics sector. It just made sense to be involved”.
