Kolibri Logistiek visited the Medica 2023 to offer our logistic services to parties from outside Europe. As we can help those companies to set up an entity overhere in order to get their goods through customs. But also warehousing activities as labeling, packaging and orderpicking in our International Distribution Center from where we can ship their products to the whole of Europe.
Upfront we contacted some companies to make appointments to meet at the exhibition. In the end we had an agenda with 23 meetings planned. So now it was time to arrange a hotel room! But that was a challenge to say the least. Everything in and around Düsseldorf was already fully booked with exhibitioners and/ or visitors for the Medica 2023. Finally we found a hotel 40 minutes outside Düsseldorf.
The first meeting on Medica 2023 we had was with a Canadian company Simport who do in a whole range of products for laboratories. But we had more interesting meetings;
- Blossom who does a whole range of latex free products such as gloves, dental dams and face masks.
- Fei who wants to bring their Theraputty and Puff hand exercise material to Europe
- SW Sustainable technology with biodegradiation gloves
- Gochirp who wants to sell their chirp wheels in Europe
- TZ Medical with disposables
- Tribute Wear with solid and print scrubs
- Dan Medica south with Treat-eezi
And many more… Alltogether it was a very inspiring exhibition, tiring but inspiring!
