    CFR Freight in South Africa recently hosted Christian Koeppel from SacoGroupair Andy Awramenko from Simply Cargo at our ACG stall at the Air Cargo Africa show in Johannesburg from 21-23 February. Despite a slow start, the event was successful and we connected with many clients and airlines. This was a successful event in which the ACG sponsored the stand on behalf of members.
