WALTHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May. 31, 2012– ModusLink Global Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:MLNK), a global leader in supply chain management, has extended the capacity at its Brno, Czech Republic Solution center, one of ModusLink’s five operational sites in Europe. The 32,000 square meter production hall enables ModusLink to provide value-added warehousing, distribution, multichannel fulfilment, returns management and other critical supply chain capabilities to global technology, communications, consumer packaged goods and medical device companies.

The Brno Solution Center was established in 2005 and is enabled with a wide range of value-added services, including digital content management, media replication, on-device printing and multiple packaging options. It operates as a strategically located distribution center to more than 120 countries, a returns center to support customer needs, and has recently been positioned as a shared-services hub for ModusLink’s European operations offering centralized supply chain planning and financial management processes.

John Heffernan, general manager for ModusLink in Brno believes the expansion, driven by new client wins, is a testimony to the strategic value of ModusLink’s services and the position that Central and Eastern Europe plays in today’s global supply chains. “We offer an alternative integrated services model that can be less costly than a pure South East Asia manufacturing solution. When supplemented by efficiencies gained with lean sigma processes, logistics and packaging optimization, we are able to help clients achieve up to a double digit cost and inventory saving. We are excited to be able to offer this solution to more clients with the expanded facility.”

Bill McLennan, ModusLink’s president of global operations, underscores the strategic value of operations in Central and Eastern Europe for clients in a variety of industries. “As clients in the high-tech, communications and medical device verticals need to become more demand-driven, the capabilities offered by ModusLink here in Brno become a critical tool in leveraging the low-cost manufacturing footprint of South East Asia, while maintaining the flexibility to meet local customer needs throughout Europe. Our global footprint and reliable, flexible infrastructure are key reasons why the world’s leading companies outsource their supply chain management challenges to us.”

Dachser reinforces its presence in the Czech Republic

Expansion of the logistics facility near Prague

Kempten/Kladno, 3 May 2012. In Kladno near Prague, where once steel from the Poldi steelworks was stored, excavators are now digging for Dachser: the logistics provider is expanding its existing facility with the addition of a new transshipment hall for industrial goods and ambient foodstuffs. At the same time a spacious, four-storey office building is also being built to accommodate Dachser’s head office in the Czech Republic.

Dachser is investing a sum in the region of 9.1 million euros in the approximately 57,000-square-metre expansion site. The new transit terminal will provide around 3,600 square metres of space for industrial goods and approximately 585 square metres for foodstuffs. A maximum of 38 trucks, five for food logistics, can dock at the same time for loading or unloading. The new buildings will be ready for occupation by November 2012. The two existing warehouses for industrial goods and food will continue to be used, so that upon completion of the construction work 14,500 square metres of logistics space will be available in total.

“However, space is not the only decisive factor. Above all we are currently investing in further enhancing our service quality, which is the prerequisite for future growth,” says Petr Kozel, Managing Director Dachser Czech Republic.

“The Czech Republic is our location in the heart of the European markets. It is therefore very important for the Dachser network with its pan-European, precision-timed freight services,“ comments Michael Schilling, Managing Director European Network Management & Logistics Systems at Dachser. “With the expansion of the Kladno branch office, we are laying the foundation for sustained further growth of one of our most dynamic country organizations.”

Dachser is present with its European Logistics, Food Logistics and Air & Sea Logistics business fields at a total of eight locations in the Czech Republic. The Czech country organization employs a staff of 310 employees.

MULTIMODAL POSTS 24% INCREASE IN ATTENDANCE IN FIRST DAY

PRESS RELEASE

NEC, Birmingham – 2nd May 2012

The first day of Multimodal 2012 – the only event for all sectors of the UK and Irish transport and logistics industries – saw a 24% increase in numbers attending, with over 2,000 visitors and exhibitors through the doors.

Many exhibitors reported visitors flocking to their stands, and several commented that it was the most effective event of its kind they had attended. “This is certainly the most popular Multimodal event we have been to”, said Zoe Arnold, UK Strategic Sales Manager for global transport and logistics operator DSV. “Multimodal always gives us a very good mix of visitors – not just potential new customers, but existing ones with whom it’s important to cement relationships. Multimodal provides an excellent forum for both.”

This year’s Multimodal has attracted a strong contingent of exhibitors from overseas, and from emerging markets.  Aztek International and Austria-based Cargo Partner, who provide a comprehensive door-to-door freighting service to and from Eastern Europe, Russia and the Ukraine, said the rate and quality of enquiries had been excellent, and even on the first two hours of day two, many important new contacts had been made. Also picking up new leads for business to Russia were Vnukovo Cargo, based at Moscow’s Vnukovo Airport, which they were promoting as Moscow’s new cargo gateway.

Closer to home, several  port and transport operators from France had a strong presence at the show, including the Ports of Calais and Boulogne, the Port of Normandy Authority, and Dunkerque Port, as well as Ubifrance, the French Trade Commission.  Dunkerque Port was one of the founding exhibitors at Multimodal, and has been at the event every year since.  Dunkerque’s Inland Transport Manager  Guy Bourbonnaud sees Multimodal as a key element in the port’s marketing: “The UK is our number one market, and with so many UK interests in the port, it is essential we have a strong presence in the UK. Multimodal has gone from strength to strength every year, and is now vital for us in acquiring new and consolidating existing business.”

Another founding exhibitor is the UK’s PD Ports, who operate portcentric warehouse logistics in the Teeside area, importing goods for distribution in the north of England. PD Ports have been at Multimodal every year, and have already booked their stand at next year’s exhibition. Business Development Director Geoff Lippitt saw Multimodal as a good opportunity to promote PD Ports’ activities to new and existing customers: “We’re refreshing our portcentric business and are using Multimodal to launch our brand new website. We’ve enjoyed a very successful period over the last four years, and we now have 4 million square feet of portcentric warehousing in the UK – a message we want to communicate to the freighting community.”

Multimodal is also a popular forum for bringing new technological innovations to the market. Fargo Systems for example have launched a major extension of their intermodal rail software, with new versions of their ‘TOPS’ container transport and ‘CYMAN’ container terminal management programmes. The company says that both systems aim to promote the use of rail freight and take intermodal management to a new level.

During day two of the event, the Shippers’ Voice held well-attended seminars on a variety of subjects. The morning began with the environment in mind, starting with a seminar by the Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG) on decarbonising the maritime supply chain, followed by Green Freight Europe (GFE) on CO2 benchmarking in road freight and the green-carrier shop. The afternoon sessions concentrated on cost savings for logistics and transport; recruiting, training and staff retention in the supply chain; and the need for getting the right insurance in the expanding logistics services market.

Trade Extensions’ Briefings proved very popular with Multimodal visitors too. Subjects covered included a case study in the use of the Trade Extensions e-sourcing programme by Franҫois Zehr of Cabot Corporation Ltd; Keeping Your Transport Contracts Current by Peter-Paul Mulder of Mars Incorporated; the Connected Carrier (integrating and exchanging data) by Jo Godsmark of Labyrinth Logistics Consulting; and an examination of container shipping market outlook, freight rates and index-linked contracts by Philip Damas of Drewry Shipping Consultants.

“From the very positive feedback we’ve had from exhibitors, visitors and presenters alike, it’s fair to say that the fifth year of Multimodal has proved the most successful ever in terms of bringing members of the transport and logistics communities together and promoting business”, commented Multimodal Director Robert Jervis. “Today has seen even more visitors through the doors, and I’m confident we are going to end up with a record attendance by the close of the show. It is a credit to all the organisers and exhibitors who have worked hard for the success of the event.”

MULTIMODAL 2012 OPENS WITH RECORD EXHIBITOR NUMBERS

NEC, Birmingham – 1st May 2012

Multimodal 2012, the only UK and Irish event for all sectors of the freight and transport industries, opened today 1st May 2012 at Birmingham’s NEC with a record number of exhibitors. The organisers say that the show has grown by 20% in this, its fifth year, and offers visitors a wider range of suppliers, modes and transport routes to choose from than ever before.

The feedback from exhibitors on the first day of the show was that the quality of visitors and the contacts they were making was of a very high calibre. First-time exhibitors at Multimodal, Hamburg-based Hapag-Lloyd, said they had already made a number of highly valuable contacts in the first two hours of the show. “This is certainly one of the most well-organised and best looking shows we’ve attended”, said Susana Schmidt-Papenheim of Hapag-Lloyd. “It is an excellent place to showcase our services, as very many of our most important customers are here.”

Another first-time exhibitor at Multimodal was the UK’s Network Rail. “We’ve been making significant improvements to the rail network over recent years, and we saw Multimodal as an excellent opportunity to demonstrate what we are doing to encourage freight to switch to rail”, said their spokesman. “We have close links with freight operators and ports, so it made sense for us to be here – the missing piece in the jigsaw if you like!”

Also at Multimodal for the first time were Europe’s largest independent wagon-hiring company, VTG from Germany, who were exhibiting their Ecofret container wagon – the first time it had been shown to the public. This new concept in rail-based container transport enables the optimum number of containers to be loaded onto a train, by using wagons of 40 and 20 foot lengths, rather than the normal 60. This increases train container capacity, and reduces gaps between containers, resulting in less turbulence and consequent savings in fuel.

Packaging specialists All Seas Global Logistics were also newcomers to Multimodal, and their Project Manager David Christie was impressed. “We had already picked up some very good new contacts before 12 o’clock”, he remarks. “We’d been visiting the show ever since it first started, and as it seemed just to keep on growing, we thought now was the right moment for us to be part of the action as exhibitors. There’s a good reason why companies large and small invest in Multimodal, and that’s because we can see it brings tangible results.”

Regular exhibitors at Multimodal Invest in Doncaster were also pleased with the numbers and calibre of visitors, whom they welcomed to their stand with portions of Huntsman’s Pie – a local speciality. “We’ve had a lot of interest from firms looking to set up business in the Doncaster area” said Invest in Doncaster’s Tim Hazeltine. “We always come to Multimodal, and I can say that this year’s show is an improvement even on the two previous ones.”

Shippers’ Voice Seminars on the first day proved immensely popular, with the Seminar Theatre packed to capacity. Subjects covered by the series included SuperPort Centric Logistics from the retailer’s perspective; a panel of experts explaining the uses of cloud software as a service to the supply chain; customs and trade compliance; and a look at maintaining Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status.

At the same time, Trade Extensions offered a series of briefings, starting after lunch with “From CO2 to CO3” – a look by Dr Andrew Palmer of Heriott-Watt University at ways of reducing empty running and maximising vehicle fill. This was followed by a presentation by Garry Mansell of Trade Extensions on the buying processes associated with sourcing complex categories such as logistics, entitled “Sourcing Optimisation – Extracting Value from Complexity”.

Multimodal Director Robert Jervis thanked the exhibitors for their vote of confidence in the event. “Not only have we more exhibitors than ever before, it’s clear from what they say that Multimodal 2012 has got off to a flying start. I’d like to thank all those who have returned to the event this year, and welcome the many new exhibitors we have too. I am confident that Multimodal will once again prove the year’s most important event for the UK and Irish transport and logistics industries.”
