CeMAT made its Down Under debut in Sydney.
Organisers have released their report on the inaugural CeMAT Australia held in Sydney in May ( News #718).

Harvey Stockbridge, managing director of Hannover Fairs Australia, says the event "successfully showcased logistics and materials handling solutions all under one roof for the first time in Australia".

Visitors came from Germany, China, New Zealand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Philippines, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States, he says.

Stockbridge confirms that the event will move to Melbourne next year, from 12–14 July.

This year’s event attracted 103 exhibitors from eight countries, and 2,864 visitors from 34 countries, although the overwhelming majority were from New South Wales (80%).

Organisers say the exhibition featured over 35 interactive product launches and demonstrations.

Highlights included Australian logistics solutions company Seabox International’s demonstration of CROWS (Container Roll-Out Warehousing System), a sea-container loading system that reduces loading and unloading times.

Dematic’s new modular Goods-to-Person (GTP) system, offering fast implementation and rapid ROI, was showcased at the event, while Combilift had a very impressive straddle carrier displayed outside the exhibition halls.

Organisers were also encouraged by the CeMAT Australia Conference Program that attracted 118 delegates.
