RCG at the China International Import Expo 2019

05. 11. 2019

We are pleased to be represented at the second China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai.

The fair will take place from 5 to 10 November 2019 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai.

After the first successful trade fair participation a year ago, the ÖBB Rail Cargo Group will again be present at the CIIE in Shanghai this year.

The China International Import Expo is the first trade fair for consumer and industrial goods, part of the country's opening policy and offers foreign companies an excellent opportunity to enter the Chinese market or to further expand their existing business.

On an area of 300,000m², the fair offers around 400,000 visitors and over 3,600 exhibitors the opportunity for lively exchange - including a varied supporting programme with high-ranking experts from the international logistics world.

China and the connections on the New Silk Road mean immense potential for us through the connection to the maritime and continental Silk Road.

Our highlights are our latest TransFER connections and of course the five award winning TransANT, our revolutionary platform wagon.
