Global Logistics Convention (GLC)


The Global Logistics Conference is an annual freight logistics event of the Federation of East African Freight Forwarders Associations (FEAFFA). The inaugural edition was held in Tanzania in 2017. Two other editions were held in 2018 and 2019 in the republics of Uganda and Rwanda respectively.

The conference offers a unique opportunity for professionals in transport and freight logistics sector from all over the world to share best practice, engage with transport and logistics policy makers, interact with a wide range of stakeholders as well as learn emerging trends and developments in the sector. The conference usually attracts participants from all parts of the world and is steadily establishing itself in the global calendar of the freight logistics sector.

The conference is an opportunity for freight logistics professionals in the EAC region to interact with their counterparts from advanced economies and begin positioning themselves for future challenges and opportunities in the sector as the regional economy continues to grow. The next host country is Kenya under the Kenya International Freight and Warehousing Association (KIFWA).

Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in 2020, the convention has been put on hold until the situation normalizes.
