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.

The Coop member ranks among the top agents on Qatar Airways and Cathay Pacific Airlines
Translog Express Pvt. Ltd., a Coop member in Mumbai and Ahmedabad, has recently garnered 2 prestigious awards by Qatar Airways and Cathay Pacific Airlines, due to the wide range of logistic services they offered as a high-quality agent.
Every year Qatar Airways organize a Top Agents’ Award Dinner, where they thank guests for their loyalty to them while looking forward to a more promising year for the business. In 2017, the glittering ceremony was held at the Novotel Hotel of Ahmedabad, where Translog Express was presented with the top agent award.
Additionally, the Cathay Pacific Certificate was delivered personally to their office. This is the 5th consecutive year that they received this Top Agent Award, which surely demonstrates their skill and expertise in the industry.
Ajay Shukla, the Executive Director of Translog Express, has stated that: “These awards are very important to Translog as it conveys our credibility to all our partners worldwide. Now they will now know that they are dealing with the very best. Qatar Airlines and Cathay Pacific Airlines are premium cargo carriers and receiving this award for the 5th consecutive time shows the trust and respect we received from our clients.”
Congratulations to Translog Express for receiving these prestigious awards!
MADRID, Spain–The Cooperative Logistics Network launched with the promise to applicants of a 6-month free trial in exchange for registering attendance at its 1st annual meeting next May. This promise has proved extremely popular, with hundreds of applications being received weekly, indicated founder Antonio Torres.
“Attendance at the first annual meeting is the best way for agents to kick-start their membership. From our experience in the networking industry, we have found that attendance at annual meetings is crucial to ensuring any members’ success; it’s a proven fact that members who attend increase their business,” Torres said.
“Agents work with people they have formed relationships with-this is true of any industry. I believe that the best freight forwarders understand the importance of meeting in person and so those applicants who say no to attending do not have a genuine interest in developing a worldwide network of agents and, therefore, are not for us,” he added.
The Coop team has been studying and whittling down the number of applicants to a block of 100 founding members which will be unveiled when the network has its operational launch on December 1st 2014.
