Kenyan capital city Nairobi will once again host the popular Flower and Perishable Logistics Africa conferences this year on October 23 and 24.
While Flower Logistics Africa (FLA) will roll out its fourth edition on October 23 at the city’s Radisson Blu Hotel, Perishable Logistics Africa (PLA) will have its third edition on the next day at the same venue.
In the last edition of FLA, the deliberations concentrated on standardising cold chain across the logistics value chain and among all industry stakeholders ranging from airports, airlines, handlers, growers, customs, and packers. With industry insights and feedback gathered since the first edition of FLA in 2016 Royal FloraHolland spearheaded a pilot project to introduce standards in boxes used for flower transport. The phase 2 of the Ideal Flowerbox was introduced in FLA 2018 after several trials and through industry collaboration.
