CrossTrades OBL Annual Meeting in Ethiopia


The annual CrossTrades OBL network meeting was held in Addis Ababa from September 23 through 26. Agents from all over the world met in the Ethiopian capital for this three-day event to exchange experiences, visit clients and plot out the future of the logistics network.

The CrossTrades OBL network connects more than 200 logistics offices all over the world. The choice of Ethiopia as the location for this year’s annual meeting was no coincidence; with a population of more than 100 million, the African country is one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

The program was packed full of interesting sessions; after all, there’s a lot going on in the network. The meeting featured a combination of workshops and interesting presentations from speakers. It goes without saying that the further development of our digital platform was a dominant theme. The platform connects the data from all the CrossTrades OBL offices in real time, and also offers advanced track & trace possibilities for shipments. We also looked at the opportunities blockchain technology can offer.

Visits to a few international companies were also on the schedule; speaking with clients on site enables us to better align our services with their specific challenges. Finally, the attendees had the opportunity to network, learn from one another and enjoy the local hospitality and coffee culture.
