Gregory Krief, Managing Director of MSC in Togo and Business Development Manager for MEDLOG in West and East Africa, will speak on a panel about “Risk Management in the Rice Industry"
Recognized globally as a leading carrier for rice shipments, MSC connects traders, exporters, brokers and suppliers around the world with their key markets, providing end-to-end transport and logistics solutions for this commodity.
Considered as the premiere conference focused solely on the rice industry, the two-day event is a perfect opportunity to meet MSC’s experts. They will be at hand to discuss how we can help foster rice trade through our sea-freight weekly services, overland intermodal and logistics services and port terminal operations, and this from all main rice producing areas to major rice cargo destinations.

He will explain how the combined strengths and synergistic links between MSC and MEDLOG can minimise risks providing a hassle-free global service from door to door.
MSC & MEDLOG, the partner combination that your business needs
A reliable shipping & logistics partner is an extension of your business. Whether you’re engaged in large or small scale rice trading activities, dealing with big players or multiple retailers, you want to ensure that your shipment will be delivered on time and in perfect condition, minimising all types of risks.
Yet rice traders and importers can sometimes need to cope with unforeseen situations such as bad weather, sudden port congestion, implementation of new regulatory processes and customs changes.
“It is increasingly apparent that reducing transit time, demurrage costs, length of port storage, and other risks related to documentation is a game-changing and cost-saving strategy for the shippers, the consignees and other players in the supply chain,” says Gregory Krief.
“We want our customers to have peace of mind, which allows them to focus on their own business instead of worrying about where their rice cargo is and unexpected extra costs.” he adds.
