LOGISTICS conference Intermodal Asia has been rescheduled to March 2021.

The event was originally to have been held in Shanghai in March this year and July 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic forced changes.

Informa Markets group director Rob Fisher said the latest change said this had been “a difficult and complex decision to make”.

“In January, we chose to reschedule Intermodal Asia to July but the spread of COVID-19 to locations outside of China along with the travel restrictions that are currently in place means hosting the event at this time is no longer viable,” Mr Fisher said.

“The health and wellbeing of our visitors, speakers and exhibitors is of paramount concern.

“Given the challenges that we are facing we firmly believe that rescheduling Intermodal Asia will provide the best possible platform for the container shipping community in Asia to connect and do business,” he said.

“I would like to apologise for any inconvenience and disruption to our visitors’ and exhibitors’ schedules and I hope they will join us in October for Intermodal Europe 2020, and in Shanghai in March 2021 for Intermodal Asia.” More information can be found by contacting Informa Markets.
