Arabs exhibit at transportation expo in Brazil

Intermodal South America opens this Tuesday (13) in São Paulo, with companies from Oman, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates expected to be featured.

São Paulo – The 24th edition of transportation, logistics and foreign trade show Intermodal South America will run from this Tuesday (13) to Thursday (15) at São Paulo Expo, in São Paulo, with exhibitors from Arab countries slated to be featured.

Exhibitors will include the Sohar Port and Freezone in Oman, where Brazil’s mining company Vale owns an iron ore pelletizing plant, storage facilities and a sea terminal. In addition to seaport activities, Sohar is home to a range of different industries, as well as being a trade hub.

The United Arab Emirates’ shipping company I-Cargo Alliance and magazine Air Cargo Update will be at the expo, as well as Bahrain’s freight forwarder L.I.N.K.

The Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce’s special projects advisor Tamer Mansour will be at the expo to make contacts and spread awareness of the Chamber’s activities, including the Brazil-Arab Countries Economic Forum set to take place on April 2 in São Paulo.

Over 400 exhibitors from 22 countries will be featured, roughly the same as in the last edition of the trade show, including shipping companies, logistics operators, railway concessionaires, airlines and port administrators from Brazil and other countries, according to the event’s organizers.

Storage companies, commercial real estate and transportation/logistics products will also be featured. Organizers are expecting over 33,000 visitors.

The expo will include the 21st National Logistics Conference, held by the Brazilian Logistics Association (Abralog). Over the course of three days, it will cover global supply chains; integrated logistics; industry, retail, e-commerce and challenges; and the future of transportation.

“We will cover all four transportation modes (sea, air, road and rail), with an emphasis on IT trends,” a press release quoted the expo’s director Renan Joel as saying.
