The Chamber of Commerce of Nord-Pas-de-Calais will be hosting the Northern France pavilion to showcase the region’s logistics expertise at the Transport & Logistics 2011 trade show, in Antwerp (Belgium). In its eighth year, the trade fair will focus on a range of sector-specific topics, with 300 exhibitors expected to attend between 20 and 22 September.

                                                 

Northern France constitutes the foremost high-tech cluster for the logistics sector in France, north of Paris. The Nord-Pas-de-Calais region (in the north of the country) is considered to be one of the most attractive in Europe for logistics investment: situated mid-way between London, Paris and Antwerp, Nord-Pas-de-Calais is where the Channel Tunnel terminates, on the French side. The region has many excellent ports, including Calais, Boulogne and Dunkirk. Besides, a wide-gauge canal will soon link it to the Paris region — the outcome of the Seine-Nord European project.

The Northern France pavilion, organised by the Chamber of Commerce of Nord-Pas-de-Calais, will accommodate a range of companies and related entities from the region: their representatives will join the 300 exhibitors at Transport & Logistics 2011.

The trade show will focus on pertinent, sector-specific themes such as multimodal transport, green logistics, ports and extended gateways, hybrid trucks and the silent supply chain (an expression used to refer to situations where the goods are delivered in the right quantity and in the right condition, thus meeting the customer’s expectations, so that there are no complaints or other issues to deal with). 

Renowned knowledge centres and media partners will also provide support by setting up an extensive programme at the trade fair, which will comprise numerous free seminars, together with networking opportunities and conferences.

The following companies and agencies will be present on Northern France’s pavilion (at Hall 2, Stand A2013), in Antwerp.

ALSTEF AUTOMATION (http://www.alstef.com/), a French company founded in 1961, is a specialist in automated systems for logistics and the airport industry. ALSTEF has set up more than 400 such automated installations worldwide. 

CONDILYS, based near the Franco-Belgian border, specialises in the import and export of fruit and vegetables, while Marsy Transport & Logistics (http://www.marsy.fr/) is a national and international logistics specialists, created in 1974. 

DELTA 3 (www.delta-3.com) is a logistical hub. In 2003, the logistics platform was set up in the region’s hinterland, on an outstanding 300-hectare tri-modal site. This logistics hub now has rail links to Italy, Spain and Germany and is connected with the region’s ports by inland waterways. 

Nord-logistique.com (http://www.nord-logistique.com) operates the EURALOGISTIC business and economic database for the region of Northern France, as set up by the Lens Chamber of Commerce and Industry. 

Port Boulogne-sur-Mer (www.portboulogne.com), the port authority for Boulogne, will also be on the pavilion. 

The Port of Calais (http://www.calais-port.fr/) is located in the centre of a dense communication network, and at the nearest point between Continental Europe and mainland Britain.

The Port of Lille (http://www.portdelille.com/) is a multi-site and multi-function unit which focuses on international trade, offering a broad range of services in logistics and multimodal transport. 

Lille is France’s leading centre for both mail-order selling and the domestic retail industry, for companies such as Auchan, Decathlon and Leroy Merlin. Lille is also a first-class industrial and logistical centre for the automobile, food and household-goods sectors.
