The event’s organisers


promise that companies within the engineering procurement and construction sector, serving the oil and gas, energy, heavy engineering and mining industries will be able to meet and talk with project logistics service providers to discuss the safe and efficient movement of heavy, over-dimensional and modular equipment.


Logistics hub


Event general manager Felix Schrick said: “We chose Singapore as it is the major regional logistics hub for the oil and gas, heavy engineering, petrochemical, maritime and offshore supply industries. It also serves as an important project cargo transhipment centre for Southeast Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, Middle East, Far East and Australia. “Among the participants, we


already have many of the sector’s big brands participating, on both sides of the supply chain, including Chevron, Technip, Jacobs Engineering,

conference A packed two-day conference agenda will see speakers presenting on a broad range of subjects including: EPCs and project logistics; maritime operations in project logistics; finance and risk prevention; equipment trends and solutions; project logistics in the oil, gas and petrochemicals sector; the energy sector; as well as project cargo by mode – addressing infrastructural issues.


Notable presenters include:  Gil Demene, logistics


Mammoet, Jumbo Shipping, SAL Heavy Lift, Panalpina and JAS Forwarding.”


Schrick explained that the main purpose of the exhibition is to help generate partnerships between the participants and the heavy transport service providers that will be exhibiting. “Picking the right partner can be tricky when it comes to working in countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Laos and Myanmar,” said Schrick, adding that PowerLogistics Asia 2013 will also be a great platform for European, African and American project forwarders to meet partners based in ASEAN countries.


Myanmar logistics


Recently Myanmar has attracted much attention from the oil, gas and mining industries and there is a huge demand for project logistics


services and equipment providers in this region. Consequently Myanmar’s logistics needs will be a subject for discussion at the PowerLogistics Asia 2013 Conference. Procurement and supply


chain professionals within the oil and gas, heavy engineering, power and mining industries have been invited to attend PowerLogistics Asia 2013; and the organisers make it clear that this is not an event for general freight forwarders. Schrick said that it will focus on the heavy lift and transport of project cargoes.


The event will also include a


full programme featuring speakers from the industrial side such as Chevron, Technip, and Jacobs Engineering; plus heavy lift and transport experts who will be highlighting industry specific issues.
