The 1st Multi-modal In­ter­na­tional Trans­port and Lo­gis­tics Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­fer­ence - In­ter­trans Pak­istan 2012 will be held from Jan­uary 12 to 15, 2012 at Expo Cen­tre, Karachi.

The Trans­porta­tion and Lo­gis­tics in­dus­try is the most im­por­tant sup­port for all other sec­tors in Pak­istan and ad­join­ing re­gions. Be­ing strate­gi­cally lo­cated at the cen­tre of a com­mer­cially im­por­tant re­gion of the world, Pak­istan has be­come a re­gional gate­way to in­ter­na­tional trade mar­kets. It is a hub of trans­porta­tion and lo­gis­tics ac­tiv­i­ties for do­mes­tic, re­gional and in­ter­na­tional trade routes. Fa­cil­i­tat­ing this process is the trans­porta­tion and lo­gis­tics in­dus­try, which is en­gaged in mov­ing and han­dling enor­mous amounts of cargo.

The trans­porta­tion and lo­gis­tics in­dus­try in Pak­istan con­trib­utes US $17 bil­lion to the national ex­che­quer or 10.2 per­cent to the GDP. The Pub­lic Sec­tor De­vel­op­ment Pro­gram (PSDP) has al­lo­cated US $2.21 bil­lion for de­vel­op­ment and upgra­da­tion of trans­porta­tion in­fra­struc­ture for more pen­e­tra­tion, in­di­cat­ing its key im­por­tance.

In­ter­trans Pak­istan is the very first multi-modal trans­porta­tion and lo­gis­tics en­sem­ble in the coun­try. It is ar­ranged to pro­vide this im­por­tant sec­tor with the only plat­form of its kind, a sin­gle sourc­ing event for lat­est trans­porta­tion and lo­gis­tics tech­nol­ogy, equip­ment and so­lu­tions.

Ex­ten­sive lo­cal par­tic­i­pa­tion and in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies from over 10 coun­tries will be rep­re­sented at In­ter­trans Pak­istan 2012, pre­mier­ing 3PL (Third Party Lo­gis­tics), freight for­ward­ing, ship­ping lines, truck­ing, air cargo, project lo­gis­tics, ports and con­tainer ter­mi­nals, ma­te­rial han­dling, ware­hous­ing, marine sur­vey­ors, cranes, trail­ers and other re­lated tech­nolo­gies and ser­vices.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is sup­ported by BOI (Board of In­vest­ment), EDB (En­gi­neer­ing De­vel­op­ment Board), NTTFC (National Trade and Trans­porta­tion Fa­cil­i­ta­tion Com­mit­tee), PIFFA (Pak­istan In­ter­na­tional Freight For­warders As­so­ci­a­tion), APSA (All Pak­istan Ship­ping As­so­ci­a­tion), ACAAP (Air Cargo Agents As­so­ci­a­tion Pak­istan), Pak­istan Rail­ways, IMTA (In­ter­na­tional Mul­ti­modal Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion) and ICC – Pak­istan (In­ter­na­tional Cham­ber of Com­merce – Pak­istan).

The con­fer­ence will be ad­dressed by renowned in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal in­dus­try ex­perts who will share their in­sights about emerg­ing busi­ness trends in the in­dus­try and will dis­cuss the chal­lenges faced by the lo­cal in­dus­try
