We are delighted to share with you details of our participation at the 3 days FIATA HQ Annual Meeting which took off from Tuesday, 17th May 2022 to Thursday 19th May 2022. 

The FIATA annual meeting is an important event and we are proud to be one of the very few freight forwarding companies (in Africa & global) to have participated.

It is a great opportunity to show our commitment to this association and its members, if not for other side values, it is especially for networking with other participants from all over the world.

It also enables us to share our experience and knowledge with peers and partners in freight forwarding.

Why We Participated in the FIATA HQ Meeting

The world has become a global village and we need to be prepared for the future. The logistics industry is one of the fastest-growing industries. In fact, it is expected that by 2025, it will be one of the largest industries in the world. This is why it is important to stay up-to-date with what is happening around us, and from the global space.

When we heard about FIATA’s Meeting in Geneva, we knew that attending would be beneficial for our company as well as our clients.

We wanted to make sure we were prepared for any changes that may come about in this fast-paced industry and make sure we are able to provide our clients with solutions no matter where they are located around the globe.

We are proud to be part of the global logistics community. The meeting was a great opportunity to connect with the industry leaders, share our experience and meet the latest technological developments in freight forwarding.

The FIATA HQ meeting was an opportunity for us to reconnect with the global trade community. As an international freight forwarder, we operate around the world and have many clients that have been working with us for over 26 years. We’ve learned from them that shipping globally requires access to information that is timely and reliable.

Our business relies on this access, so participating in this meeting was very important for us. We wanted to learn more about how our industry can better serve its customers while also helping the entire industry grow together through sharing information and ideas, and maintaining true reconnection.
