Exhibition traffic in and around Cologne is to be reorganised: For the two exhibitions FSB and Aquanale (October 26 to 29), Koelnmesse is activating its dynamic logistics management system E-Slot. Logisticians, carriers and exhibitors are now required to preregister their entire logistics traffic for set-up and tear-down of a trade fair, instead of just driving into the venue, as they had been doing.
"With immediate effect, we already have a complete overview of the logistics situation surrounding our fairs in advance. This gives us completely new options for traffic guidance and logistics management", says Koelnmesse managing director Herbert Marner.
„We have a complete overview of the logistics situation surrounding our fairs in advance.“
The aim is to relieve delivery traffic congestion, to achieve higher throughput and to avoid waiting times and tailbacks on site. The preconditions for optimised routing and logistics processes were established with the dynamic LED signage around the venue completed in early 2021.
