SCN completes successful 12th annual conference in Hong Kong

Monday, March 10, 2014

   Security Cargo Network wrapped up its 12th annual conference recently.  The venue was the Langham Place Hotel in Mongkok, Kowloon, a first-time visit to that property for the group.    
   “I think the members mostly liked being in a different neighborhood, after our previous stays on Nathan Road” commented Dave Lucia, president of the network.  “Some of Hong Kong’s best markets and malls were close at hand, and the Langham was a most gracious host to our group.”  
    Adhering to the usual format, the conference featured two mornings of general sessions followed by one-on-one meetings among the members at half-hour intervals over three days.  In attendance were some 185 representatives from 128 companies in 60 countries.  “The feedback I have received has all been very positive,” Lucia said.  “Judging from what I saw of the individual member conferences, a lot of business was discussed and, one would hope, developed over the three days.” 
     During the Wednesday evening Awards Banquet, Lucia presented Distinguished Service Awards to Segaduanca Asesores Aduaneros (Caracas, Venezuela and Miami, USA), Kasy Logistics (Tianjin, China), and Neptun Transport (Copenhagen, Denmark).  Members’ Choice Awards were presented to Prantik Express (Dhaka and Chittagong, Banladesh; nominated by MAT Cargo, Spain), Merzario UK (London; nominated by US Group Consolidator, USA), and PSTS Logistics (Chennai, India; nominated by AquaAir Freight Services, New Zealand).  Special Service Awards were presented to Preford Logistics (Hong Kong) and ACI Cargo Logistics (Miami, USA and Colombia).
