2012-05-22 - FPS at Intermodal, 2012

“I am delighted to inform you that FPS Group’s recent attendance at the Intermodal Fair (Sao Paulo, Brazil, 10th - 12th April) was a great success.
“On behalf of FPS Group, I would like to thank World Freight Brazil for giving us the opportunity to share the costs of the stand with them. The result – as you will see from the picture – was a very prominent presence located in a central position adjacent to the Maersk Line and MSC stands.
“The Intermodal Fair at Sao Paulo has grown to become one of the foremost events in the Freight Forwarding Industry. The South American market is clearly growing, and we encourage all our members and network agents to pay greater attention to this market and its potential.
“The FPS Advisory Board was represented by Jens Ole Holmager, Michele Dougal and myself, with Kettivit acting as Consultant to the Advisory Board, and Cindy Ko (Secretariat) providing support. Hendratmoko was sadly unable to attend due to personal reasons.
“As in 2011, the Advisory Board took the opportunity to hold its bi-annual meeting the day before the show, with daily follow up meetings. I extend aspecial “thank-you” to Kettivit for spending considerable time both at these meetings and manning the stand.
“The 2012, Intermodal Fair in Sao Paulo drew a very large gathering of Freight Forwarders, Shipping Lines and related industry players from South America, the USA and around the world. There was also substantial representation of affiliated sectors such as insurance, general transportation, heavylift and media.
“To maximise their effectiveness at the show, your Advisory Board members worked on a roster system in order to engage with visitors to our stand and also to visit other standholders, to promote the FPS Group. Our main focus was on the South American market, and we had many companies registering their interest. The Advisory Board is now in the process of evaluating potential members and a further update will be provided in due course.
“We also wish to thank those FPS members and Network Agents who visited the FPS Group stand, many of whom assisted us in promoting the group at this event:
Quincy Tan - FPS Singapore
Sam Aparo – FPS Melbourne
Surasit Asavasakseri and Sona Malhotra – Leo Global Logistics Thailand

“We hope the success of this event will inspire all of you to look for more opportunities to develop business in this exciting market.”
Kind regards and best wishes
