Approach for trucks to INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR
With the rules regarding traffic and access for constructing and dismantling stands we want to help you and your stand construction companies to have as trouble-free a time on the Koelnmesse grounds as possible.
Free ride with eSlot and NUNAV
In order to optimize the entire trade fair logistics, from now on access to the Koelnmesse exhibition center during set-up and dismantling is only possible with a booked time slot - eSlot. In conjunction with the routing app NUNAV, each vehicle is automatically guided to the optimal individual route and is given the fastest route directly to the desired loading or unloading position on the exhibition grounds, eliminating the need for a stopover at the logistics building.
Please note that Cologne’s Mülheimer Brücke bridge has been closed to heavy-duty vehicles over 3.5 tons gross vehicle weight since 15 April 2019. You can find more information with corresponding maps on the website of the city of Cologne.
