Flower &Perishable Logistics AfricaThe Flower Logistics Africa aims to enhance collaborative actions between growers and the rest of the supply chain. Kenyan capital city Nairobi is hosting the popular Flower and Perishable Logistics Africa conferences this year on October 23 and 24.
FLA & PLA:
While Flower Logistics Africa (FLA) will roll out its fourth edition on October 23 at the city’s Radisson Blu Hotel, Perishable Logistics Africa (PLA) will have its successful third edition on the next day at the same venue.
Holland Flower Alliance (HFA) has joined Flower and Perishable Logistics Africa conferences as a silver sponsor, while Kenya International Freight and Warehousing Association (KIFWA) has pledged to be a supporting partner for the event.
Founded in 2016, the HFA is an enterprising group of floricultural industry professionals dedicated to logistics innovation and sustainability by Royal FloraHolland, Schiphol Cargo and KLM Cargo.
The theme for FLA 2019 is Making flower trade sustainable – Economically, environmentally and digitally.
For PLA 2019 is Together for better logistics – Collaboration key to enhancing Africa’s perishable export.
The conference sessions will introduce fresh perspectives, new ideas, and inspiring speakers. It provides a perfect platform to network with key stakeholders in the flower and perishable logistics value chain.
Opportunity from Kenyan airways:
Peter Musola, Cargo Commercial manager, Kenya Airways cited: “The event has created a fresh opportunity for the industry. I’m very happy to see KEPHIS and KFC bringing in good content for the stakeholders. We will support the outcomes from the event and drive our industry partners to the next level.”
The month of October will add more vigor to the stakeholders’ discussion on the flower and perishable industry as African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). This is a single continental market for goods and services will come into force by July.
KIFWA is the sole representative of all clearing, forwarding and warehousing companies in Kenya. KIFWA was born out of the need to form one national body which is cohesive enough to represent the interests of all its members.
Apart from KIFWA and HFA, the event includes Kenya Airports Authority as the platinum sponsor and Liege Airport as track sponsor.
The conferences will act as a global networking platform for regional and international service providers involved in the cold chain, logistics and packaging solutions, shippers, producers, and transport providers. Therefore it bridges the gap between the supply chain and logistics business.
