November 7th, 2019

Bolloré Logistics Australia participated in the PACIFIC 2019 International Maritime Exposition from the 8th – 10th October 2019 at the ICC in Sydney, Australia.

The PACIFIC 2019 International Maritime Exposition has broken records for the event's 20-year history, with attendances up 27% over the 2017 event, a 20% increase in participating exhibitor companies and more than double the number of official delegations.

PACIFIC 2019 broke previous records in every major metric in a dynamic week that has underlined the event's place as the premier international maritime exposition for the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.*

Bolloré Logistics presented at a stand for the days open to trade visitors and was successful in engaging with a large demographic of potential and existing customers across the Defense verticals. The event was coordinated by the Australian team of Bolloré Logistics led by Benjamin Miles, National Commercial Manager.

The highlight of the event was having the opportunity to display our defense capabilities to the Australian Defense Industry and networking with clients, partners and other businesses involved in this sector.

Benjamin Miles, National Commercial Manager at Bolloré Logistics Australia stated: "The Airshow was a huge success for the Aerospace and Defense verticals in Australia; the key goal for the event was to continue to build the presence of the Bolloré Logistics brand in the market and through our engagement over the week, we were able to do that successfully."

On behalf of the Bolloré Logistics Australia Defense team, a warm thank you goes out to all our guests and collaborators who attended the event and assisted in ensuring that Bolloré Logistics expands its footprint in the Defense verticals in the Australasian marketplace.
