The proficient services of the Warelog team along with their Walmart accreditation are some of the factors which helped them secure this project for the 5th time
Warelog Gestao de Servicos Logisticos LDA, a Coop member in Lisbon and Porto, Portugal, gets nominated for moving a cargo of Christmas Butter Cookies from Portugal to USA, Canada and England. As said by Mr. Luis Pinto, the General Manager of Warelog, “Warelog is the only logistics operator in the country accredited by Walmart for consolidation of their foodstuff containers and they, together with their supplier, keep on awarding us all the logistics operation in Portugal.”
After receiving the products from the factory they started loading the first lot of a total rounding about 300 x 40’ hc. The shipments will continue to be loaded until the end of October. “This is indeed a very significant project for our team. During the exhaustive accreditation audit, Walmart pointed out our extraordinary level of organization, safety, and care throughout the workflow, and we ended up getting a fantastic 97% result on that same audit!” adds Mr. Pinto.
Congratulations to Warelog for garnering this important project for the 5th time!
After a 2 ½ month recruitment campaign, The Cooperative Logistics Network’s ‘Founding Members’ will begin operations today
“Today is the beginning of The Cooperative. The day when all our members will start contacting each other and begin building the foundations of those important business relationships, which will be cemented when agents meet at our annual meeting in May next year,” said Managing Director, Antonio Torres.
The founding members are located in 60+ cities across 50+ countries, together boasting a total of 5000+ employees and a sales turnover for 2013 of over 550,000,000EUR.
“Since September, we have been inundated with applications because, I believe, independents understand they are in a ‘cooperate or die’ situation. No company wants to be left out in the cold when the multinationals are conveniently gaining 1% of the market annually,” explained Managing Director, Antonio Torres.
Mr Torres continued, “Hand in hand with cooperation is intimacy. Cooperation simply won’t work if a network is overcrowded which is why we are only allowing a maximum of 3 agents per city with the exception of the largest cities allowing 5.”
