REILE 2024 will be taking place in La Guardiaweg 59, 1043 DE Amsterdam, The Netherlands. REILE will bring together senior decision makers from all across Europe and as Amsterdam is considered the gateway to Europe, we felt it was the perfect location. For centuries, imports and exports have shaped the region’s economic activities and laid the foundation for its current position as one of the most important European logistics markets. With Europe’s largest seaport in Rotterdam, one of the major Airports in Europe and its central location, the Netherlands form the logistical heart of Europe. The logistics sector accounts for 9% of GDP and affects the whole Dutch economy. More than 400 transport and logistics companies have found a home in the Amsterdam Area. Businesses embrace the region’s reputation for innovation, and take a fresh approach to powering the industry forward. Amsterdam is even considered the home of the Digital Supply Chain.
