This way, delegates will be able to participate in up to 32 one-to-one videoconferences of 20 minutes duration with the previously selected partners. In order to participate in the cloud conference, all you have to do is schedule your meetings and go to The Coop’s platform on the 15th and 16th of November.

Connecting, collaborating and networking are the three pillars for the success of the transportation and logistics industry. As one of the best freight forwarding networks of our time, we have modernized our meeting platform to make this year’s videoconferencing experience an even better one.
