Just one week on from its launch, the team have already processed hundreds of applications and started building its block of founding members, as well as receiving hundreds of website hits (www.thecooperativelogisticsnetwork.com) and requests for information.
“This is as good a start as any network founder could hope for,” said Managing Director Antonio Torres, himself a veteran network owner, who exactly 4 years on has launched The Cooperative Logistics Network, a capped non-exclusive network with freight forwarders in each major air/seaport who co-operate in a financially secure environment to reduce costs and risks and grow their businesses together to compete against the multinationals.
“The popularity of the network is reassuring us that our first goal of recruiting 100 agents for our December operational launch is achievable as well as our target of 75 main cities covered by our first annual meeting in May 2015,” said Mr Torres.
A six-month trial is being given to those agents who, once accepted into the network, commit to attending the networks’ first annual meeting. “You could say this is a bit of a risk but I firmly believe that those applicants who say no to attending do not have a genuine interest in developing a worldwide network of agents,” explained Mr Torres, “These are not the kind of members we want.”
