On this final day, attendees of the globally-renowned transport logistic trade fair have the chance to explore the pioneering concepts and breakthroughs brought forth by roughly 2,300 exhibitors from 67 different countries, marking this year's event as more internationally diverse than ever before. Spanning an expansive area of 127,000 square meters that includes ten indoor halls and various outdoor spaces, the fair offers a vast landscape of industry innovation to delve into.

Yesterday, Siemens Mobility and FS Italiane Group, together with its subsidiary TX Logistik AG, signed a contract worth €300 million for the supply and 15-year service of 40 Vectron locomotives. Designed for deployment in freight transport across five countries on the Rhine-Alps corridor, these digitally connected locomotives are designed for predictive maintenance with Railigent X, which ensures high reliability and optimal vehicle availability. 

Future cooperation has also been confirmed with the signing of a contract by Innofreight and K+S for the delivery of a further 60 2×40 ft InnoWaggons and 120 SurfaceWaterTanks. K+S, a German mining company, has been using these containers since 2020 to transport saltwater and has largely switched to Innofreight equipment. 

The day before yesterday, visitors to the fair were able to witness the appointment of Dr Sigrid Nikutta as the new CEO of Rail Freight Forward, after which she followed up her speech by highlighting the achievement of a 30% share of freight trains in continental transport through digitalisation and automation. In addition, the launch of DB Schenker's Circular Economy Logistics product line marked a key moment that demonstrated a strong commitment to sustainability in logistics and provided comprehensive solutions for customers.

The first day of the fair began with the opening ceremony of the Federal Minister of Transport, Dr. Volker Wissing, who, in his opening speech, raised key issues for German transport and emphasised the need for rapid modernisation of the German rail network.

Campus Plaza in Hall B2 serves as a meeting place for established companies and start-ups to present their work together and welcomes all the attendees on the last day of transport logistic, and RAILTARGET is preparing a series of interviews with top managers of the railway sector, so you have a lot to be looking forward to soon.
