Launch of new freight forwarders network
From yesterday (15 September 2014), applications are being accepted to join "the Cooperative Logistics Network", a capped non-exclusive network in which hand-picked freight forwarders in each major air/seaport cooperate in a financially secure environment to reduce costs and risks and grow their businesses together to compete against the largest multinationals.
"As the multinationals gain 1% of the market annually, those independent forwarders lacking a global brand are helpless to fight back. The Cooperative Logistics Network will immediately give members a global brand, allowing them to bid for the largest contracts and receive better rates from carriers," explained Antonio Torres, the brainchild of the new alliance based in Valladolid (Spain). The new network will allow a maximum of three agents per city, and five for the largest cities.
