SFN Zoom Social Connects Members

Zoom Socials have become a regular fixture at SFN, as a way for our members to connect more frequently throughout the year, in between SFN Meetings. SFN Operations Manager Jess Baker recently hosted our September Zoom Social.

Jess told us more: "We met today and shared updates from around the world, with members from Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Libya, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain, Turkiye and Vietnam all in attendance.

We discussed the rising trade in e-commerce and the opportunities it holds; use of WhatsApp as a tool for quick updates in forwarding; trade in Europe and countries affected by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine; the negative effects of inflation; why certification such as ISO and IATA are good investments; why diversification of services can help forwarders stay competitive and survive in today's industry, and much more.
Several members also confirmed that they would be attending the next SFN Meeting in April 2024 in Dubai. It was a very enjoyable call."

Some of the members who joined the discussion shared their comments.

Helia, who joined us from World Ocean Cargo Iberica in Spain, said: “The best opportunities for connection are the meetings, and on Zoom. Thanks to SFN for making it possible. If was very good to see you and we will see each other in Dubai!"

Prakash from Seatrans Agencies in India said: "Thank you so much Jess and all the members we met today. It is nice to meet you all and looking forward for a great association."

Alex from TOL Hong Kong added: "Nice to meet you guys here. Looking forward to seeing you all at the upcoming SFN Conference!"

Jess concluded, "Zoom is a great platform for us to connect throughout the year, in between our annual meetings. Putting a face to a name, when contact is usually via email, phone or text, really helps build familiarity and stronger relationships."
