NAFL represents UAE at FIATA World Congress
The National Association of Freight and Logistics (NAFL), the oldest association of freight and logistics service providers in the Middle East, recently brought the spotlight on the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as a logistics hub at the world’s largest gathering of international freight and logistics experts and decision makers at the FIATA World Congress held in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia, from October 4-8.
UAE is among the biggest contributors to the GCC’s logistics sector. With Dubai alone awarding construction contracts worth Dh11 billion this year in preparations for the World Expo 2020 and investing much more toward developing infrastructure and enhancing its logistics facilities in the run up to the Expo, the country offers unparalleled smart infrastructure facilities for international businesses.
Globally, the logistic industry is expected to reach $15.5 trillion by 2025, at an average annual growth rate of 7.5percent. As business worldwide becomes increasingly borderless, companies are seeking to expand their operations and are seeking efficient and reliable movement of goods across international borders.
The NAFL delegation met with world’s logistics experts and update, brainstorm, shared information and spoke on groundbreaking issues pertaining to the industry, during the five-day congress.
The delegation comprised of Abdullah bin Khediya, General Coordinator, Nadia Abdul Aziz, President, Ahmed Abdul Razak, Vice President, Praveen Chandrasen, Board Member, Ibrahim Abu Zayed, Board Member, Sudesh Chaturvedi, Board Member, and other leaders from freight and logistics industry in the UAE.
