Bring transportation in sync with the world at the ultimate logistics retreat

Welcome to Transporeon’s annual community conference and logistics retreat

We are honoured to host an event that brings together all the players within freight management and movement — from shippers to carriers, LSPs to forwarders, retailers to load recipients.  

Whether you are focused on the load or the asset, navigating responsible growth in an era of sustainability or improving your people and technology, our 2023 Summit is set to the break the ceiling on automation, real-time insights and collaboration as we curate an agenda aimed at bringing transportation in sync with the world. 

Join 500+ players over a 2-day period with main stage keynotes for all, streamed content to targeting the different players (shipper, carrier), interactive round tables, panel discussions, and networking opportunities in the partner pavilion. We are excited to welcome top industry experts as well as market-leading global brands, logistics providers and Transporeon specialists.  

Hosted at the breathtaking Atzavara Hotel & Spa in Santa Susanna, Spain — just outside of Barcelona — this event focuses on both the body and mind, providing an opportunity for participants to fully embrace the learnings of the day as well as the many spa amenities. 

Let’s explore the world of freight together.

What our customers say

Transporeon Summit is one of the conferences where you can't decide which session you want to visit, because you want to visit them all! Moreover, it brings together participants with similar interests and topics to discuss, so it is always a great learning experience.

Petra Lippertova, Head of Logistics Operations - Group Procurement, DS Smith

My experience at the Transporeon Summit in London in 2022 was positive and insightful, offering valuable networking opportunities with the Transporeon team and fellow customers. I'm eager to gain further insights this year, particularly on two new Transporeon solutions, which will be revealed during the event. It’s important for us to succeed in improving processes for qualification, onboarding and finding opportunities with carriers, old and new. As we continue our journey towards efficiency and sustainability, Transporeon remains a promising partner for the future, to support our growth and add value to the industry.

Jason James, Global Ground + Rail Procurement Head, CEVA Logistics

I'm joining Transporeon Summit as it's a unique opportunity to meet all relevant stakeholders in the transportation community and to share ideas, best practice and future outlooks.

Fulvio Profeta, International & Overseas Transport Senior Manager, Barilla

The Transporeon Summit 2022 was an eye-opening and well organised gathering of Transporeon experts, customers from different businesses and experienced university advisories. It offered a perfect mix of workshops with deep insights, outlook sessions on what the future could bring, stage discussions and enough space to network with all the participants. I am looking forward to the next level!
