Again, a combined meeting together with ALNA, Airfreight Logistics Network for Africa, the sister network of ALN arrived at its 2nd in-person meeting.
The growth of the networks have been impressive in the last years: ALN counts on 220 members, 80 of them in Africa and 140 in the other Continents. The 100% of Africa covered with at least one member. ALNA already have more than 100 members but is growing very fast since the restart of the meetings face to face.

“My father Alessandro founded ALN because we wanted to be stronger in Africa with our Freight Forwarding company – says Marcello Saponaro, Chairman of Africa Logistics Network-. Not to have yet another "network". The goal was to have the best network of Small and Medium sized Enterprises Worldwide and covering 100% of Africa, to support our company and to support every member of ALN”.
“And we did it – says Marcello Saponaro – “.

The main part to the conference is dedicated to the one-to-one meetings between participating members of the Networks but there will be many opportunities to reinforce friendships and confidence during the social time: the time spent during lunches and dinners.
