COOP agent in Ahmedabad and Mumbai encourages all members to use FreightViewer in order reduce time to quote and easily share rates between agents

Our member, Mr. Ajay Shukla, from Translog Express PVT LTD, has given very interesting suggestions to improve FreightViewer and make it even more useful

After the launch of The COOP’s exclusive software, FreightViewer Department has been receiving plenty of applications from our members to test the software and suggest its improvements. Ajay Shukla, Executive Director of Translog Express PVT LTD, has been collaborating with FreightViewer Department and is now willing to start to work with FreightViewer.

Ajay Shukla states: “FreightViewer is a very good tool and I think it will save a lot of time in quoting rates between agents, as once shared with each other the rates are available online,It also helps forwarders who do not have elaborate and expensive software to easily keep track of their quotes and approvals from their customers […] it will be extremely useful as trusted agents can share the rates and quote to their customer instantaneously” 

Our member, Ajay, has also suggested to have several detailed quotes in one page and a more simple solution for air rates. All these comments have been quite useful for FreightViewer Department and have helped us to improve the tool. Following our member’s statements, we are sure FreightViewer will enable all members of The COOP to reduce time to quote and save costs as it isa free tool for members.

FreightViewer Department will be happy to assist you if you may need any assistance with the use of the software or would like to know more about the system by scheduling a personalized demo, by contacting amartin@thecooperativelogisticsnetwork.com. We will be happy to assist you.

The Coop turns 5!

The Coop started accepting applications from members in September 2014 and commenced their global operations since December 2014

The Cooperative Logistics Network which started its journey from September 2014 has turned 5 years old. The Coop was formed with members from over 60 cities across more than 50 countries which together had a total of over 5000 employees with a sales turnover exceeding EUR 550 million for 2014. Since then, The Coop brand was endorsed worldwide as a practical and attractive new opportunity for freight forwarders who henceforth benefitted from the tailored service of a strong network of local independent agents, and an international reach.

“It was during our 1st Annual Meeting at Bangkok in May 2014 when members began to realize the enormous potentials of our network and the rewards of collaboration. Since then we have travelled a long way and presently we count on over 288 agents from numerous cities covering 124 countries with a total of more than 13,928 employees.” says Antonio Torres the President and Founder of Cooperative Logistics Network. Last year alone The Coop was joined by 85 new members and the number keeps increasing.

Presently, The Coop is one of the premier non-exclusive networks of independent freight forwarders who are offered an international brand, a digital infrastructure, and an impressive global presence. Apart from 5 highly successful Annual Meetings, the steady rise in the number of our agents, and the introduction of an array of online tools and PR services for our members, one of our most significant achievements in the last 5 years consist in the introduction of our member-exclusive online tool FreightViewer, which has taken the digitization efforts of independent freight forwarder one step further.

Sealand Logistics, Coop Gdynia/Gdansk, merges with the oldest freight forwarders of Poland- C.Hartwig

C. Hartwig takes over all of the business liabilities and assets of Sealand Logistics

The process of merging C. Hartwig Gdynia with Sealand Logistics- a young and rapidly expanding company – began in the last quarters of 2017. Since then, they optimized the structures of both the organizations to make the most out of their combined potential and now they are able to provide better rates and services than ever before.

 

The outstanding performance in the freight forwarding sector delivered by the two companies will be maintained by their dedicated and experienced employees. The scope of Sealand’s services as FCL, LCL, air, road, rail, and project cargo was enlarged by the more specialized C.Hartwig’s projects such as their own warehouse, fair logistics and bulk shipping projects. Formally, the merger has been written down in Polish Court Registry System on 2nd Jan 2018 after which they will continue as C.Hartwig.

 

In the words of Radek Januszczak, Network Development Manager, “This merger has been a very significant step forward for C. Hartwig and we expect that it will provide the company’s customers and partners with the benefit of joint experience, higher organisational culture and more efficient operation. Consequently, it will guarantee the improvement of service efficiency enabling us to achieve more tangible results in the future.”

All the best to the new C.Hartwig team for all their upcoming endeavours!
