FIATA World Congress 2017

FIATA World Congress 2017
Danny Gill

This will be the 56th occasion when the world’s logistics experts will gather to update, brainstorm, share information and speak on ground-breaking issues pertaining to the industry. Attended by decision-makers and top representatives from the various related logistics sectors, the Congress has, through the years, gained a solid reputation as a viable international platform for the exchange and dissemination of the latest and most innovative from the global logistics industry.

The theme for the 2017 Congress is: “Logistics Bridging Global Trade” – especially relevant in today’s economic climate, where the industry is required to facilitate the super-efficient movement of goods across international boundaries. As international business becomes increasingly borderless, more companies are expanding their markets into the global arena, thereby significantly increasing the demand for supply chain and logistics support. The components to success of such a facility includes an ever-increasing array of disciplines – from the influence of customs policies, worldwide legislative developments in transport, to the latest in technology, training and guidelines in security and safety. These significant issues will be addressed during the Congress, including opportunities for Regional Groups to meet and resolve local industry problems. We are anticipating a sizeable attendance from logistics-related business delegates worldwide.

We are honoured to host this important Congress in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 2017. Malaysia is a major logistics player in the Asean region – its green logistics practices and halal logistics expertise has made it a regional logistics hub. With its competitive pricing, superior infrastructure and strategic geographical position at the crossroads of Asia, it has proven to be an attractive transhipment center. Malaysia’s first-class international ports and terminals are some of the busiest in the world, with two ports listed on the Top Twenty list of World Container Ports (World Shipping Council’s World Container Ports 2013). It also offers the world’s first I-port facility – an airport within a seaport in Port Klang.

Malaysia is a well-known tourism destination, with its multi-cultural attractions in food, its people and their warm hospitality. An interesting social schedule has been planned, with a wide choice of visits to places of interest and things to do. We are looking forward to hosting over a thousand delegates in 2017.
