A day marked by optimism, resilience and the desire to regain normality in the activity that brought together 300 professionals and 122 transport companies from all over the continent and that carried out a total of 4,225 quick interviews in the Speed Networking rounds and 434 private meetings in the Cargo Area.

WConnecta regains its status as the sector's benchmark event

In total, more than 42,000 minutes of networking put the cherry on top of WConnecta 2021 in Barcelona, the first event held after the pandemic, which took place in a reduced format and with exceptional security measures due to the health situation.

WConnecta reinforces its status as the benchmark event in the sector, a setting that allows delegates to connect with as many partners as possible and establish long-term relationships of trust within the Alpega Group's transport community, which includes the Teleroute and Wtransnet freight exchanges.

When asked about the importance of the WConnecta event, Cecília Araújo-Behm, Sr.Manager, Head of Sales West & Southern EU for Coyote Logistics said, “It is very important attending WConnecta because we get to connect with partners we already do business with and also meet new ones that can end in a long-term partnership. I would definitely recommend WConnecta because we really like the opportunity to meet face to face. Speed dating is one of our favorite parts!”.

WConnecta is back at a time when freight transport is facing the difficult challenge of sustainable mobility. Business-to-business collaboration is now more necessary than ever to reduce empty runs, making WConnecta the best place for carriers and logistics operators to expand their network and opportunities for more sustainable business growth.
