UAE to host the prestigious FIATA-RAME 2024 Field Meeting & Conference

The global logistics sector to reach US$ 16.36tn by 2027

The UAE National Association of Freight and Logistics (NAFL) has announced the 2024 FIATA RAME (Region Africa and Middle East) Field Meeting and conference dates.

Held under the esteemed patronage of HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Honorary Patron of NAFL, the two-day event, scheduled for March 5th and 6th, 2024, in Dubai, will bring together leading industry experts, policymakers, and stakeholders to discuss critical trends and strategies shaping the future of logistics in the MEA region. It will also highlight the growth opportunities in the industry and the economy in the region, according to a press communique.

The global logistics sector is experiencing unprecedented growth, with the recent Mordor Intelligence report estimating its market size to reach US$ 16.36tn by 2027. The MEA region plays a pivotal role within this landscape as a vital bridge connecting continents and facilitating trade flows worth trillions of dollars.

Red Sea

With the Red Sea situation unfolding at the heart of the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA)’s Region Africa Middle East, the discussions will serve as a critical platform to tackle industry challenges and explore innovative solutions that propel seamless and sustainable logistics across the region.

The meeting will be the perfect platform to foster collaboration between countries and stakeholders to develop efficient connectivity infrastructure and streamline cross-border trade while navigating geopolitical uncertainties, global trade disruptions, and economic fluctuations while ensuring resilience and agility.

The Conference agenda will focus on addressing the environmental impact of logistics through green initiatives, carbon-neutral technologies, and efficient operations, leveraging cutting-edge advancements in automation, blockchain, and artificial intelligence to optimize supply chains and enhance transparency and collaboration.

Field Meeting

“In this field meeting, FIATA will convene its Region Africa and Middle East delegates, and the general freight forwarding community in the region, in this opportunity to explore how to build a more resilient supply chain given the ongoing crises in the Middle East, with the use of multimodal transport to support and facilitate the industry cargo flow,” commented Dr Stéphane Graber, Director General, FIATA.

UAE’s strategic location, world-class infrastructure, and commitment to innovation make it the ideal platform for this crucial discussion. The UAE boasts the world’s busiest airports for international cargo traffic, the Jebel Ali Port, the largest and most technologically advanced man-made harbour in the Middle East, and a thriving free zone ecosystem. It is also a regional hub for major logistics service providers and technology companies.

“The conference is a gateway to exploring the immense potential of the UAE logistics sector as the country is positioned as the logistics hub for the neighbouring GCC countries and the wider MEA region. With its focus on key themes, insightful discussions, and networking opportunities, the conference will contribute to shaping a more efficient, sustainable, and collaborative future for the logistics and trade industry in the MEA region and beyond,” affirmed Nadia Abdul Aziz, President, NAFL.

The FIATA RAME conference in Dubai-UAE promises to be an invaluable event for all stakeholders involved in the logistics and trade sector, the press statement concluded.
