Frey adds that the company was kept busy with "dozens of meetings requests" from its clients and is very satisfied with the show.

ID Systems exhibited at CeMAT Asia for the first time this year to showcase its patented wireless vehicle management systems (VMS) for materials handling equipment (MHE) fleets, under the theme "Reduce MHE costs, Increase MHE Safety".

According to Alexander Glasmacher, ID Systems' managing director for Europe, Middle East and Asia, the event was worth attending. "It was evident over the four days of the show that the Asian logistics sector is buzzing with activity, especially in China. CeMAT Asia was a timely and ideal opportunity for us to raise awareness of our products in a market that is full of potential. Our sales team welcomed a large number of visitors to our booth, where we provided them with Chinese language brochures and product demonstrations."

Bolzoni Auramo, which has two plants in Longhua and Wuxi manufacturing forks and forklift attachments, was the only global attachment producer at the Shanghai expo.

Export manager Vittorio Lucchini says his company has made "outstanding" investments into the Chinese market and saw the expo as a good opportunity to not only showcase its most important products but to improve Chinese perception of the group as a global supplier "able to satisfy all possible logistics demands".

"The feedback from the customers was extremely positive. We had the chance to meet some important logistics operators interested in testing the quality of our products and I am very proud to see the first results of the ... company's efforts," Lucchini says. "I am also convinced that the gradual localisation of production (more and more items are completely assembled in the Chinese plants) will lead Bolzoni Auramo to (achieve) the same leading position that the group has in Europe."
