Special Chairman’s Report from Cape Town

I attended the FIATA 2019 World Congress in Cape Town, South Africa in week 40. I met with a lot of people and perhaps the business cards of some of them may come in handy for you as members of the network. I have organised them so that the list starts with shipowners, shipping lines and airlines then customs offices, trade related bodies and finally with various freight forwarding companies mainly coming from Africa. Many forwarders attended this event since the focus was heavily on AFRICA and the upcoming Free Africa Trade Union about to be implemented.

If you need further information please do contact me directly and I will be pleased to help:
