The SIL Barcelona, the leading Logistics, Transport, Intralogistics and Supply Chain Fair in southern Europe will be held one more year in Barcelona between May 31 and June 2 of this year. This year it will have the representation of more than 650 companies, 220 speakers and more than 250 events spread over 3 days.
The International Logistics and Maintenance Exhibition (SIL), organized by the Barcelona Free Zone Consortium, is the leading annual fair in southern Europe and the Mediterranean, in which the entire logistics chain is represented: transport, logistics, mobility, distribution, intralogistics, storage, supply and new technologies.
This fair is the leading fair in the logistics sector in all its fields. This year, like the others, the unmissable annual event for the international logistics sector will be held at the Fira de Barcelona's Montjuic site. But, what is the SIL?
The SIL was born as a congress 24 years ago, in 1998, and a year later it held the first edition of the Fair. Year after year, the fair has been evolving hand in hand with the sector, becoming faithful to its annual appointment uninterruptedly until reaching its twenty-first edition. Now, after a forced break due to the global health situation, this new edition of SIL arrives with a renewed image, a new logo and a greater presence of new technologies that will promote the new generation of networking opportunities. To do this, the fair has an app that will facilitate the transmission of data between exhibitors and visitors by simply scanning the corresponding QR codes.
The SIL celebrates its 22nd edition reaffirming its position as the reference logistics event in Spain and the Mediterranean thanks to the interaction of 4 lines of action that have been present since the first edition:
- To be the meeting point of the logistics sector, offering a wide range of quality and opportunities to establish contacts.
- International projection: Year after year, SIL attracts more exhibitors and international visitors, becoming a bridge that connects the European market with Latin America, North Africa, the Middle East and the Mediterranean basin, especially the Maghreb area and the southeast of Asian.
- To be the true forum for logistics knowledge, a qualified and privileged place for reflection. For this reason, it promotes an outstanding agenda of congresses that will take place throughout the days of the fair.
- Bet on new technologies as a strategic factor in the logistics sector and bring the latest developments and trends in the sector.
The organizer: The Barcelona Free Zone Consortium
The Consorci de la Zona Franca de Barcelona (CZFB), the first consortium established in Spain (1916), is a public entity for economic and social revitalization. Since its creation, it has managed the Zona Franca industrial estate and its customs area. It has also promoted a multitude of projects in other parts of the city and the metropolitan area, always linked to high value-added activities with a strong component of innovation. In addition, it works to promote the international projection of Barcelona, Catalonia and Spain in the trade fair, logistics and new economy sectors. It has more than 10,000,000 m2 of industrial and urban land in different stages of development. Its corporate mission is to boost the economy of the metropolitan area through the management of the Zona Franca Industrial Estate, as well as the customs of the Zona Franca, generating economic and social value, and raising international awareness
In addition, in each historical period it has contributed to economic and social growth with pioneering initiatives. The governing and management bodies are made up of representatives of the main economic entities in Barcelona, representatives of the Barcelona City Council, the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Government of Spain: the decision-makers reflect their spirit of public-private collaboration.

In recent years, the hitherto unknown logistics sector has become an industry considered by all to be a key and essential sector for the economy. One of the great novelties of the XII Barometer of the SIL Logistics Circle is that for the first time Spanish industrial companies have been asked about the factors that have contributed the most to the visibility of logistics as a sector of primary need among the public. And the results highlight two fundamental causes above all: the Covid-19 pandemic with 46.3% and the rise of eCommerce with 41.6%. 10.4% of those responsible for logistics and/or supply chain in the Spanish industry also consider that the microchip supply crisis has contributed to this, while only 1.7% point to other causes such as the lack of professionals in the sector, reverse logistics or shortages.
