eyefortransport holds first Middle East summit

Delegates attend from Agility, Kuehne + Nagel and APL Logistics.


The eyefortransport Middle East summit was held recently at the Radisson SAS hotel on Dubai Creek.

An impressive number of delegates attended the event, which featured speakers from Agility, Kuehne + Nagel, APL Logistics, GSL, and Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC).

Several interactive workshops were held during the event, covering topics such as supply chain management, innovative business modelling for the GCC, best practice for warehousing, and implementing supply chain security.

Of particular interest to the maritime attendees was a roundtable chaired by industry leaders which included a ports and carriers service evaluation discussion.

Other niche areas on the agenda were implementation of the ‘track and trace’ technologies such as RFID, and working with local government, including tips on how to acheive regulatory compliance and overcome red tape.

“Feedback from the executive presentations has been excellent and we were especially pleased to see so many examples of attendees using the time for productive networking," commented Laura Goddard, eyefortransport's conference manager.

“Overall the summit was a resounding success for a first time show in the region and we are already looking forward to the summit in 2007."
