FEI Group ships 1.4 million Euro beer filling line

FEI Group is pleased to announce that they have successfully completed the loading of one single lot of project shipments in 12 x 40HC and 6 x 40FR (Beer Filling Line worth €1.4 Million ) for one of their most important customers, KHS Machinery from Mundra to Benin, Cotonou

This was an Ex-Works Shipment where the team were responsible for handling the cargo pick up and road transport, customs clearance and ocean freight.

Prior planning was key to the successful execution of this shipment; including numerous visits to the factory to ascertain the exact weight and dimensions of the cargo, arranging the equipment for stuffing the boxes and lashing the goods followed by a final survey. The cargo was stuffed in such a way as to ensure maximum utilization of each and every container.

One of the main challenges faced during the customs clearance was that the containers and trailers could not enter the Inland Container Depot (ICD) where the customs examination was to take place due to the cargo’s oversize dimensions.

Instead, the customs officials gave FEI Group special permission to have the cargo examined outside of the ICD, so that the cargo could be cleared and loaded on time.

“This is an excellent example of team work where all our service providers as well as the customs officials supported us to make this shipment a success. We are ready for many more such successes in the weeks to come,” said Sheen, FEI Cargo Ltd, Managing Director.

We invite all members with shipments in Kolkata to get in touch with the team.

 

Freight forwarders give a resounding yes to cooperation: Hellenic Shipping News

After a 2 and a half 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.”

Cooperative Logistics Network says recruitment drive successful: canadianshipper.com

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.

“This is as good a start as any network founder could hope for,” said Managing Director Antonio Torres, himself a veteran network owner (CONQUEROR Freight Network), who exactly four years on has launched The Cooperative Logistics Network, a capped nonexclusive network with freight forwarders in each major air/seaport who cooperate in a financially secure environment to reduce costs and risks and grow their businesses together to compete against the multinationals.

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,” Torres explained. “These are not the kind of members we want.”

The Cooperative Logistics Network will allow a maximum of three agents per city with the exception of the largest cities allowing 5. “The network will provide the intimacy needed for business relationships to grow whilst maintaining the autonomy many forwarders want when choosing business partners,” said Membership Development Coordinator, Eduardo Paternina.
