The twelfth edition of transport logistic, the world’s largest logistics, telematics and freight transport trade fair, took place at premises of Messe München International between 12 and 15 May 2009. Attracting around 48,000 trade visitors from 112 countries and 1,760 exhibitors from 55 countries, it surpassed all expectations, because in spite of the recession, the number of visitors was roughly the same as in 2007, which was when logistics was enjoying a boom year.
France Wagons, which is an SNCF subsidiary, exhibited four wagons of types which it offers for hire. Three of these vehicles were older types subjected to modernisation, while the fourth was a Class Fas (seen in the title photo), previously displayed at InnoTrans 2008 (see R 1/09, p. 63) as part of the SNCF Rolling Stock Division range of exhibits, the latter realising some of the work for France Wagons.
