expo PetroTrans 2018: Positive signs and great popularity in the industry

• Global companies exhibiting from 20 to 22 September 2018 at the trade fair for fuel haulage and logistics

• Further education, driver and safety training as well as consulting surround the 3-day fair’s events

The popularity of the expo PetroTrans, the international trade fair for logistics, transportation and handling in the petroleum industry, is unprecedented. Presently, the organisers are reporting more exhibitor registrations than in the same time period of the previous fair. The international diversity of the exhibiting companies and key players of the industry, currently with more than 30 per cent participation, emphasise the importance of the special trade fair far beyond the borders of Europe and this is still growing!

“We are experiencing positive feedback in discussions with interested parties about the clear profile of the fair, the depth of the offers and industry relevance, from which exhibitors and visitors profit equally,” says Petra Molnár, department
manager for trade fairs and events of AVR GmbH. “We are creating new highlights in the supporting programme for the expo PetroTrans 2018 together with selected experts and competence partners. Besides practice-based training, interactive workshops on pressing safety issues, specialist presentations on current industry developments, the Federal Labour Office is also offering extensive advice in connection with measures for acquiring and securing specialists.”

 

As of 20 September, the fair halls in Kassel will be transformed into a showplace for fuel handling for 3 days. Well-known manufacturers will enthral visitors on 12,500 square metres of exhibition space with innovative products, offers and services for fuel haulage and logistics as well as the biggest exhibition of road tankers, silo vehicles, trailers and superstructures.

On the whole, the trade fair guarantees once again this year to bring together all aspects of fuel logistics […]

The date for the 8th edition of expo PetroTrans has advanced: The exhibition will take place from the 20th until the 22nd of September 2018 in Kassel.

This optimizes the event situation and the holiday (3rd of October/German National Holiday) as well as the autumn vacations in Germany will be avoided. Exhibitors will benefit from this new time slot. IAA commercial vehicles in Hanover has also been brought forward to the same time. The events´ contemporaneousness and the proximity of the venues (train connection Hannover-Kassel in 0:55 hrs) are prime reasons for many trade fair visitors to visit both trade fairs.

    expo PetroTrans 2016 Leading tradeshow again attracted over 4,000 visitors from all over the world

expo PetroTrans 2016 Leading tradeshow again attracted over 4,000 visitors from all over the world

More exhibitors, larger space, greater international attendance

The 7th expo PetroTrans, which ended on October 1, 2016 in Kassel after running for three days, again showed considerable gains in attractiveness for industry decision-makers – throughout Germany, but also internationally and far beyond European borders. The leading international fuel logistics show underscored its growing significance as an innovative platform with a significantly enlarged exhibition space, covering 12,500 square meters. In three halls of the Kassel fairgrounds, over 100 renowned companies from 14 countries displayed a full range of pioneering technologies and services for fuel transport. As the world’s largest exhibit of tank and transport vehicles with over forty models drew in visitors, the unique display again highlighted the quality and depth offered by expo PetroTrans.

Continued success

“The upward trend of the past years continued this year for expo PetroTrans: more exhibitors, a significantly larger space and noticeably more visitors,” summarized Alfred Lindner, Managing Director of Lindner & Fischer Fahrzeugbau GmbH, who was highly satisfied with the outcome of the event. The event again attracted over 4,000 visitors, about a third of whom came from other countries, to learn about cutting-edge technologies on three tradeshow days. A total of fifty nations were represented. For the first time, registered visitors came from countries such as Australia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and South America, adding to the global reputation the tradeshow has earned.

Networking and many attractions

In addition to the high-quality exhibit offers, visitors were also impressed with the tradeshow events, which included a wide range of offerings in a comprehensive supporting program with sensational high points. The presentations and seminars given by recognized experts on practical topics, which were offered free of charge to tradeshow attendees, were well attended. […]

Thrills guaranteed

On the test track in front of the trade fairgrounds in Kassel, truck drivers test their vehicles’ limits.

Have you ever parked a vehicle with a power slide, taken a curve at a tilt, or come to a full stop from a speed of 100 km/h? What’s more, have you done any of this with a tanker vehicle or a fully loaded truck? If the mere thought is giving you an adrenaline rush, you are in for an exciting adventure–at this year’s expo PetroTrans, the trainers of green duck GmbH will use the outside area of the Kassel fairgrounds as a test track for breathtaking stunts, and will demonstrate what high horsepower vehicles can do in extreme situations. That will take strong nerves, including for visitors, who can even witness the maneuvers as passengers. The pros from the rally and trucking scene are as skilled and nimble as the gigantic trucks they steer over the test track.

As trainers for professional truck drivers and driver safety, they are “tested for the unexpected” and can turn around even borderline situations with nerves of steel and high responsiveness. Many in the audience will catch their breath: Won’t the colossal truck tip over at such a tilt?

The breakneck maneuvers of the truck driving experts will prove once again: It pays to understand the physical interactions of driving, to correctly employ vehicle technology and the existing assistance systems, to test limits, and to master critical traffic situations.

The safety of dangerous goods transports by road and rail will also be the topic of a presentation given by green duck GmbH. As part of the accompanying expo PetroTrans tradeshow program, executive manager Thorsten Pütz talked about essential changes in the ADR/RID 2017, […]

    How training in a SiFaT driving simulator for professionals reduces trucking cost

How training in a SiFaT driving simulator for professionals reduces trucking cost

Whether it is an efficiency training to reduce diesel consumption or a safety training helping to avoid accidents, cost of repairs and downtime: in any case the investment into professional trainings for truck drivers with the Berlin company SiFaT Roadsafety will shortly pay off. Especially as the German government takes 50 percent of the training cost for example for qualification of professional drivers. During expo PetroTrans SiFaT Roadsafety shows how such a training looks like and which state aid programmes help financing the trainings. The company informs at booth D04 in hall 4.

Moreover, visitors of the trade fair may personally take part in an individual training session at no cost. Therefore SiFaT brings one of its mobile truck driving simulators on expo PetroTrans. SiFaT simulators are developed and built to instruct professionals in the most realistic way. To achieve this the driving simulators for example use original driver cabs of Mercedes, MAN or Scania trucks. In these surroundings even ambitious professionals forget in a minute that they are not driving on a real street. The tailor made programmes are designed to train drivers very focussed, rapidly and in the most efficient way: No truck has to be moved in such a training, no diesel is wasted, there is no risk of accidents, even in the most difficult courses.

KG–have therefore decided to increase the exhibit space by 25 percent with a new combination of exhibit halls.

Globally unique array of innovative technologies

With its globally unique array of innovative technologies and services, expo PetroTrans targets decision-makers of the industry as well as experts in shipping and fuel handling at an international level. Some 4,000 visitors from forty countries attended the tradeshow in 2014 to learn about the latest technological developments. The exhibit–featuring more than forty tank trucks, pellet and silo vehicles, assemblies, trailers and tractors–reached an impressive size last year, but is likely to again exceed the expectations of visitors in 2016. This will also be assured by state-of-the-art technical demonstrations and live presentations. The tradeshow program […]
