Our Association has participated on the 2023 Global Freight Summit organized by DP World, one of the world’s giant logistics company, held from 15-17 November 2023 in Dubai, UAE.

EFFSAA joined the second edition of GFS as an exhibitor and a panelist.

Participants who visited its exhibition booth had acquired vital information about the association and the country’s logistics industry as well.

Our Association also had a privilege to share a stage with fellow African Freight Forwarding Associations as panelist of the event under the title “Building Hubs: Africa – An Emerging Supply Chain Powerhouse?”

Represented by its Vice President Dawit Woubishet, who is also the chairperson of AFI of FIATA, the current position of Ethiopian Logistics sector was briefly explained to participants.

The Global Freight Summit is DP World’s vision to create a platform to convene the influential minds from the international freight forwarding and supply chain communities. An event that brings industry leaders and the global freight community together to discuss the pressing challenges and issues keeping them awake at night. On its first year in 2022, GFS was able to connect over 1500 delegates from 65+ countries.
