"Ethiopia – Building bridges for Global Logistics and Supply Chain"

World Business Logistics Network (World BLN) Switzerland will be holding its 3rd Annual Conference at Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. World BLN is breaking the barrier with being the first network in hosting their Annual Conference here. Ethiopia has great tourist attractions and many others to offer, is ranked the second fastest growing economy in the world with 8.2% GDP. Addis Ababa, as the Capital of Africa, is definitely providing excellent business opportunities.


Our main objective for the 3rd Annual Conference is to connect our members on a global scale, creating value and opportunities for growth within the Industry. We are providing a platform for the Freight Forwarders and Logistics Service Providers to discover, interact and seek opportunities to collaborate.


We are equally as excited as you with all these new opportunities. We are honored to be cooperating with our local Partner, Samatra Logistics, a member of World BLN, who had volunteered to co-host this year’s conference together with the Ethiopian Freight Forwarders And Shipping Agents Association (Effsaa). With this, we are confident that the conference will be vibrant, exciting, fruitful outcome for every Delegate.


Everything is taken care off from your arrival at the airport and we assure you a relaxed and at the same time informative weekend.
