New forwarder network now up and running
After an around ten week recruitment campaign, The Cooperative Logistics Network's founding members began operations this week. The new network's managing director Antonio Torres said, "1 December 2014 marks the beginning of The Cooperative. It was the day when all our members started contacting each other and began building the foundations of those important business relationships, which will be cemented when agents meet at our annual meeting in May next year."
The founding members, located in more than 60 cities across more than 50 countries, together boast a total of over 5,000 employees and a sales turnover for 2013 in excess of EUR 550 million. Torres added, "cooperation simply won't work if a network is overcrowded. This is why we will only allow a maximum of three agents per city, and five in the largest metropolises."
