Myles, Richard and Zoe have just returned from Dublin where they attended the WCA Regional Conference. The WCA is the world’s largest and most powerful network of independent freight forwarders. Also there was KTL Turnkey, KTL Vietnam and KTL Benelux, It was great for the team to all catch up and get together. 

A little note from Myles about the conference..

The three of us attended the WCA Conference in Dublin, WCA is the worlds biggest network of freight forwarding professionals. The conference was attended by around 700 people from all over the world and gave us the chance to meet our partners face to face but also to make new contacts and friendships. The format of the conference is similar to speed dating, you have 30 min appointments with other agents.

It was great to meet some old friends, make new friends and get new contacts and bring in more business.

The conference was also attended by KTL Turkey, KTL Benelux and KTL Vietnam

Richard who recently joined the team as our new Sales Director said this…

“Well, it was my first visit to a WCA Regional Conference, and Dublin didn’t disappoint.  The room was packed with delegates from all over the world and I must admit I wasn’t quite prepared for the sheer size and scale of the 3-day event.  I made lots of new contacts with whom I’m sure will become lifelong connections.

I look forward to growing KTL Europe’s presence worldwide and collaborating with our partners, jointly winning business together as a result.”

I also spoke to Zoe who is the Branch Manager for our new office in Heathrow. She had the following to say on the trip to Dublin..

The WCA conference was busy from start to finish but had the most amazing vibe and to think the amount of nationalities under one roof was incredible.

The meetings I attended with different agents have proved promising, already quoting business with a new agent in DXB. Many other’s have contacted and we are looking to work together and increasing volume both on Imports and Exports, sending through DAP tariff for Air and Ocean.

Personally, it was great to meet some of the KTL and Kinay team, the only downside of this conference is that hundreds of agent have contracted Covid, our Managing Director unfortunately being one of them. Although, we are no longer on lockdown, I am unsure if the world is ready for such big gatherings of over 700 people, think it was inevitable that Covid would be present.
