With the launch of the ILSS and the numerous forums that took place, including the ‘Environmental Protection Forum’, the ‘@tco Asia Tank Container Forum’ and the ‘Intermodal in China Forum’ – hosted by SISI, plus the global leading exhibitors, Intermodal Asia has become an integral meeting point within the industry for critical discussion to take place in a neutral environment.” explains Sophie Ahmed, Event Director.
