The Irish International Freight Association (IIFA) will be hosting a Pavilion at PACKAGING, PROCESSING & LOGISTICS at Dublin’s Citywest in May, giving its members the opportunity to take a stand under the IIFA banner and meet the country’s top decision-makers across the whole spectrum of Ireland’s industry.

“The Irish International Freight Association welcomes the opportunity for its members to promote their international forwarding and logistics services especially now that the country is increasing its exports at a steady rate. From now until May we will be supporting easyFairs to ensure a strong exhibitor base and the right visitor profile over the two days. We look forward to hosting the IIFA Pavilion at the exhibition,” commented Colm Walsh, Chief Executive Officer of The Irish International Freight Association.

PACKAGING, PROCESSING & LOGISTICS 2012 is a complete supply chain all-Ireland event, taking place on 16 & 17 May 2012 at Dublin’s Citywest Convention Centre, bringing together Ireland’s key buyers and suppliers from the most important sectors of manufacturing and industry, including: food & beverage; pharmaceuticals; life sciences; medtech; chemical; and much more.

Despite the economic challenges, Ireland exports are booming, which is creating demand for additional capital expenditure in production facilities, raw materials and services.

With Ireland currently situated as Europe’s second-largest exporter of medtech products and with nearly €1 billion in Irish food and drink exported, the economy is seeing growth and now is the time for companies to promote themselves and gain new contracts.  Indeed freight forwarding has in recent years has undergone a massive transformation in response to the demands and opportunities presented by technology and globalisation. Logistical services, modern information and communications technologies, and total supply chain management are integral to a modern service sector now very far removed from its traditional image of warehouses and docks. IIFA full trading members are at the forefront of meeting these challenges by offering a knowledgeable and professional service to Irish industry leaders at home and abroad.
