FairLog—The New Logistics Control System

Planning in advance for exhibitors, freight workers and stand builders

FairLog – the IT-supported time window management makes it possible to intelligently control truck traffic during the construction and dismantling periods of trade fairs. This has the advantage that all the trucks are distributed in the Messe München loading areas to maximize efficiency of time and space, automatically and in real time.

How freight-forwarders benefit from FairLog:

FairLog—how it works:

For vehicles with a total length of more than eight meters, exhibitors or their stand builders or freight workers book a time window for their deliveries and collections via FairLog at https://messe-muenchen.fairlogportal.com.

The following information must be provided:

The system reserves a suitable time slot for the forwarders in the adjacent area / loading yard. The driver must report to check-in no later than 30 minutes prior to the start of the time slot with the log / booking reference number and provide his vehicle registration and mobile phone number. At the same time, FairLog automatically analyzes the availability of space in the loading yard on an ongoing basis. When a suitable space is free at the assigned time-window, the driver will automatically receive a free message on his mobile phone asking him to drive onto the site.

What happens if no time-slot has been booked?

Vehicles which turn up unannounced will also be recorded at the check-in and then processed via FairLog. BUT: vehicles for which a time slot was booked in advance will obviously be given priority! Drivers of non-registered vehicles must therefore expect a longer wait time.

During dismantling however, time slot booking is mandatory. Without a pre-booked time slot, access to the exhibition grounds is not possible.

When is FairLog to be used?

We are using FairLog in a targeted way! FairLog is especially useful for trade fairs with high logistical effort. There may also be an obligation to book a time window in individual phases. Smaller events, meanwhile, can be handled without FairLog.

If FairLog is used at a trade fair, its use depends on the size of the vehicle: from a total length of 8 meters or more, it is necessary to book a time window via FairLog, shorter vehicles do not need to book a time window (access according to traffic guidelines).

Where can I get more information?

You can find out whether FairLog is useful at your trade fair, whether there is an obligation to book and all other important information about the schedule, access gates, etc. in the traffic guide for the respective trade fair.
