FIATA World Congress 2016

  • Location: Dublin
  • From: 03/10/2016
  • To: 08/10/2016
  • Time: 09:00

An opportunity for learning and sharing industry practices amongst logisticians from all over the world!

In keeping with the theme of the Conference in 2016 – ” Ireland: Where Networking Comes Naturally” – there will be an enthusiasm for networking amongst freight forwarders who, at the same time, can enjoy the friendly atmosphere of our city and country.

Freight Forwarding began in Ireland in the mid 1920’s when Lep Transport set up operations in Dublin. There were some further local additions during the 1930’s but it was not until foreign direct investment in the 60s and 70s, that an upsurge in the number of freight forwarders took place. To-day, in spite of amalgamations over recent years our association has over 110 full trading members. Since the late 1970s training of staff members plays an important part in our activities. In fact, Certificates of Competence in Freight Forwarding were presented to successful participants of our freight forwarding course during the last FIATA Congress held in Dublin, in 1981.

Networking will serve as a core focus prior to and throughout the Congress program, from the exhibition to the tea and coffee breaks and from the gala dinner to the ancillary delegate options.

In recognition of information technology’s crucial role in freight forwarding and supply chain management, and Dublin is headquarters of leading IT firms such as Google, Facebook and Linked In, there will be contributions from such firms aimed specifically at investigating how this technology can further enhance the industry’s contribution to world trade and commerce.
