In the framework of its actions aimed at promoting and fostering good logistical practices, and following the successful organization of the workshop on the stakes of outsourcing of logistical activities in the Casablanca-Settat Region and the Souss-Massa Region, the Moroccan Agency for Logistical Development, in partnership with the General Confederation of Companies in Morocco (CGEM), organized another workshop for the benefit of the economic actors in the Fez–Meknes Region, around the same theme. The event was organized on November 22, 2016.
This workshop falls within the framework of the operationalizing of the Implementation Contract relative to the improvement of logistical competitiveness of the sector-based merchandise flows, as signed by the State and the General Confederation of Companies in Morocco (CGEM), in May 2014.
The event, which was presided over by Mr. Younes TAZI, AMDL’s General Manager; Mr. Mohammed BERRADA RKHAMI, CGEM’s President for the Fez–Taza Region, and Mr. Hicham MELLAKH, Vice-President of CGEM’s Logistics Commission, saw the participation of several actors in the logistical sector in the region: institutional, professional associations, loaders, and logisticians.
During the said workshop, several presentations were given which highlighted, on the one hand, the overall state of the practices and the trends in the outsourcing of logistical activities in Morocco, and on the other, the significance of logistical outsourcing as a lever of company competitiveness, through the sharing of case-studies which relate lived experiences by national and international companies in this area. It should be noted that this event is part of a series of regional awareness workshops for the benefit of sector-based professional associations in order to underline the benefits to be reaped from outsourcing logistical activities, to enhance company awareness of logistical stakes, and to enable them to develop such tools as would allow them to master and succeed in their future outsourcing projects.
