GPLN delegates convene in Bremen

More than 180 delegates of the Global Project Logistics Network (GPLN) convened at the Dorint Park Hotel in Bremen earlier this week for the group’s 16th annual meeting.

GPLN members, sponsors and media representatives networked across the three-day event, which took place from May 18-20, 2019. Attendees were treated to a ro-ro shipping seminar, a selection of high-quality presentations, one-to-one meetings, along with a gala dinner at the Emma am See restaurant within Bremen’s charming Bürgerpark.
 
GPLN’s executive director Luzius Haffter said that the network today boasts 270 member companies, with 330 offices located across 220 ports and cities around the world. “This year, we had 20 new members attending our meeting,” he added.
 
Bahrain-based Turk Logistics and Heavy Transport was announced as the winner of the group’s annual photograph competition (see below). The company secured free admission to GPLN’s next annual general meeting, which will take place in Casablanca, Morocco, from May 31 - June 2, 2020 – just after Breakbulk Europe 2020.


 
The group has also undergone a rebranding process, with a new corporate logo. “The red colour represents fire and blood and is associated with energy, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. The blue colour signifies the sky and sea. It is often associated with stability and symbolises trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, truth, and heaven,” said Haffter.
