First independent freight forwarder is GIL's "best in class"
The Global Institute of Logistics (GIL) has accredited Quick Cargo Service Germany (QCS) with "best in class" status in recognition of the company’s outstanding contribution to the development of best practice in independent freight forwarding in Germany and beyond. QCS is the first independent freight forwarder to achieve this accreditation from GIL
The announcement, made last week in Berlin by Kieran Ring, CEO and founder of the Dublin-based institute GIL, is the result of the body's ongoing research into the evolving role of the independent freight forwarder in global logistics.
The research, the results of which will be published in 2017, is in response to the increasing trend by beneficial cargo owners (BCO’s) to outsource the management of their freight traffic, logistics and supply chain support functions to the independent freight forwarding sector.
