Dubai Trade and NAFL discuss alliance
In a recent open forum, Dubai Trade and the National Association of Freight and Logistics (NAFL), discussed plans for an alliance that would help grow the freight forwarding and logistics industry in the UAE.
“The recent global economic crisis prompted mergers, affiliations, and alliances among companies and organisations, which ultimately signifies the need to work together,” said Mahmood Al Bastaki, director of Dubai Trade.
“To synergize with organisations such as the NAFL is a step towards promoting teamwork that will lead to advancement in the freight and logistics industries,” he added.
NAFL executive board member and IT sub-committee chairman, David Phillips of Freight Systems Company Ltd. expressed NAFL’s enthusiasm for the partnership.
“We look forward to formalizing an alliance with Dubai Trade. As part of our mission statement we aim to facilitate programs and activities that will support local government initiatives and policies relating to the regulation and development of the freight forwarding industry.”
