Logistics in Argentina is booming due to favorable laws
Do you know which country ranks second in terms of GDP in South America? With 40 million inhabitants and close ties to European cultures, Argentina is a key regional power with important agricultural and mining resources (1). A well developed transportation industry enables companies to distribute products all across its vast geography, which is the 8th largest country in the world (1). Furthermore, the Argentinean city Ushuaia is the most southern logistics hub. Logistics to and from this service is booming and multiple international companies use this logistics hub. To learn more about logistics in Argentina, the EXPOLOGISTI-K event is held.
From the 7th to the 10th of August, logistics and transportation sectors will exhibit their know-how at the 10th edition of EXPO LOGISTI-K, held in Buenos Aires. 275 companies, some of which include MIEBACH, CEVA Logistics, MHIA and ERNST & YOUNG, will welcome 20,000 visitors in an exhibit space of 23,000 square meters! This edition is organized around three different themes. The first is intralogistics as an integration vector – how logistics helps to coordinate and optimize flows of management. Next is the role of packaging in the supply chain – how packaging design can help reduce costs and improve customer experience. Then finally, international transportation, with the focus on the post-international segment.

Under the same roof, attendees have the unique opportunity to find and learn about in-plant handling equipment, industrial vehicles, carriers-conveyors, inventory management technologies, labeling and packaging machines, load protection material, automatized storage systems, freight forwarding services, software suppliers and integrators as well as consultancy and training services. In short, whether you’re a plant director, a logistics professional or work in import-export, this is a one-stop event you definitely should attend! In addition, conferences and training workshops will be offered by the ARLOG (Argentinian Logistics Association). Last but not least, field trips to third-party logistics facilities can help you decide about the new logistics supplier you want to do business with. To sum up, EXPO LOGISTI-K has the potential to help you expand your professional network as well as purchase logistics services while knowing exactly what you’re paying for!
The Southernmost Logistics Hub (3)
Few of you might know that most of the cell phones and electronic household equipment bought by Argentinian families are assembled in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, only a few hundred kilometers from the Antarctic. Because of favorable tax and investment laws, as well as higher duties on finished imported goods, Argentina has managed to developed an impressive “end-of-the-world workshop”. Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, LG and many others now ship semi-finished goods from Asia to Ushuaia, mostly by boat as Ushuaia has a modern harbor. There, the final assembly step is performed, before the goods are shipped or forwarded by road to Buenos Aires. Because of this, the need for logistics and freight forwarding services to and from Ushuaia is booming. Fortunately, many international as well as local transportation companies can help you manage this segment of your supply chain. Just a little tip, you’ll surely find some of them at the EXPO LOGISTI-K.
As we had written in an earlier publication, Latin America is waking up slowly. Its economy is growing and so is the need for efficient logistics and transportation services. Argentina is a country with high potential for making business deals and EXPO LOGISTI-K is the key regional event for logistics and transportation industries in the area. These are two good reasons for you to register don’t you think?
