Dear Friends and Colleagues,
As President of FIATA I am delighted to invite you to attend our 2018 World Congress which is being held in the historic city of Delhi in India.
For many centuries Delhi has been a dominant trading & commercial centre in northern India. This tradition as well as Delhi’s important role in the economy of modern India makes it a perfect place for FIATA members from all over the world to gather, meet & greet, explore business opportunities and update their knowledge on global logistics, freight forwarding& connectivity issues.
The increase of global production and acceleration of urbanization created a demand for more investment and amplified capacities in logistics. More roads, railways, airports, bridges, ports, and logistics centres are needed, the sustainability, efficiency and effectiveness of which to be brought about by intelligent IT solutions. Investment into our industry’s human resources must ensure that freight forwarders are prepared to meet future challenges. All these objectives and dynamics are condensed into our Congress theme ”The Future Starts Here”.
This year’s FIATA World Congress will continue to add value for both Association Members and Individual Members. The gathering of the various Institutes, Advisory Bodies and Working Groups will once again give participants cutting-edge information and ideas on our industry, whilst a diversity of networking sessions will enable our members to meet with business partners all over the world in a cost-and-time efficient manner.
I believe that participants will be impressed with the business opportunities and attractions as well as the hospitality of our local host, the Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations in India (FFFAI).
We extend to you the invitation to register early and participate in the 2018 FIATA World Congress, I look forward to seeing you soon.
