The giant logistics and transportation trade show MEGATRANS2018 will feature a logistics technology summit conducted by the Australian Logistics Council.

"Technology is a major component of the logistics supply chain and will play a dominant role in the exhibitions at MEGATRANS2018," said Australian Logistics Council (ALC) managing director Michael Kilgariff to Logistics Magazine.  "The Supply Chain Technology Summit 2018 will align well with the technology theme and ensure that those who attend the integrated event can maximise their time and investment."

"The ALC operates a number of events each year and technology has been an increasing focus.  The dedicated Supply Chain Technology Summit will focus on the policy priorities articulated by ALC in "Freight Doesn't Vote" - our submission to the Inquiry into National Freight and Supply Chain Priorities.  This includes collecting greater data on freight movements, adapting to automated technologies and global labelling standards.  Further details on the Summit will be announced in 2018."

MEGATRANS2018 will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre 10–12 May 2018.
