Multimodal 2021

Multimodal 2021

Multimodal 2020, which had already been rescheduled from its original date in June 2020, will now be held at the NEC in Birmingham on the 23rd-25th March 2021.

Multimodal 2021 celebrates 14 years of putting shippers, retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, importers and exporters in front of exhibitors who offer the latest logistics and supply chain solutions.  Multimodal is firmly established as the UK, Ireland and Northern Europe’s premier freight transport, logistics and supply chain management event.   

Whether you are a 3PL, BCO, shipping line, logistics provider, haulier, pallet network, port or warehouse owner, Multimodal offers a unique opportunity to make valuable face to face contact with new prospects and existing companies.   Year on year, shippers and cargo owners attend to improve their businesses; by finding ways of moving their products more efficiently and by meeting new suppliers. 

Multimodal represents every logistics sector under one roof, and is characterised by key vertical sectors, including manufacturing, retail, agribusiness, chemical, automotive, electronics, FMCG, food & drink, fashion, pharmaceuticals, construction, aerospace, energy, real estate, recycling, paper/print and perishables, amongst others, whilst horizontally, the show covers all modes of transportation, including sea, road, rail, air and inland waterways.

This matrix design makes Multimodal incredibly valuable and accessible for shippers - whilst also affording them the opportunity to successfully meet and network with peers from other sectors, which is another key reason for their attendance.

This attendance next year will be bolstered by brand new initiatives:


We will be introducing a bespoke match-making service to connect shippers – our VIP visitors – to each other and to our exhibitors. This will be closed programme available only to exhibitors and to bona fide VIP visitors, to add real value to stand-holders and sponsors.


The revamped conference programme will feature a host of vertical half day seminars that reflect shipper interests.  These free-of-charge sessions will also allow suppliers to these sectors to participate in lively debate.


A new attraction at Multimodal 2021 will be the British International Freight Association’s (BIFA) Freight Forwarders Village, designed to provide a marketplace for BIFA members and associate members to showcase the products and services they offer in a simple and cost effective way.

Lastly – we will be further upgrading our day three offering - addressing training, recruitment and the skills gap which are major threats to the success of many companies, with a major focus on apprenticeships, training, re/upskilling, education and recruitment with seminars and initiatives specific to this sector.


The Multimodal Awards -  the industry's recognition of the amazing talent within all sectors of transport and logistics.  Hosted by Kevin Keegan, the event is a great place to network and enjoy a great evening amongst fellow professionals.

The Multimodal Mixer - sponsored by Forth Ports -  join us for our famous get-together for both visitors and exhibitors - in a relaxed informal atmosphere.
