I would like to thank all my team members for their consistent effort which allowed us to move the shipments professionally.”

Globalia London carries out the delivery of a special pre-historic discovery of human remains

Yes 2 Ship also took charge of arranging for urgent customs clearance of this shipment

Globalia member in London, Yes 2 Ship, saved the day on Tuesday of this week when they were called upon by University College London (UCL) to assist in the urgent Customs Clearance and direct drive delivery of a very special pre-historic discovery of human remains found in a remote area of Southern Sudan.

UCL is the leading worldwide player in the mapping of mankind’s DNA and having discovered a “pre-historic” skeleton they needed help from Yes 2 Ship’s government contacts to obtain customs clearance with virtually no paperwork of these priceless artefacts.

Prior to Yes 2 Ship’s involvement, the shipment was stuck in London Customs for over 14 days with little chance of being resolved. However, this issue was sorted within just 3 hours and delivered personally to UCL by Yes 2 Ship’s Globalia Manager Charlie West. The “Pre-Historic Skelton” is in the UK to be DNA tested and may prove to be the missing link in mankind’s move from nomadic African hunter-gatherers to those who first ventured to what is now the modern Middle East and Europe.

In the words of Ian West, Managing Director of Yes 2 Ship Ltd “Although Yes 2 Ship has moved everything from artwork by Van Gogh to Gold Bullion, this shipment consisting of the irreplaceable missing link from everyone’s “family tree” has been our most significant move to date.”

Congratulations to Yes 2 Ship for the successful delivery of this special shipment!

Globalia Logistics Network begins operations – AJOT

Limerick, Ireland – The industry’s newest exclusive freight forwarder network Globalia Logistics Network begins operations today with 52 member companies in 74 cities across 56 countries.

“We are really pleased to be launching today with this exceptional group of founding companies. Each has successfully gone through our strict selection process and been audited and approved by Dun & Bradstreet,” explained Founder Antonio Torres.

“I truly believe that the only way to really know whether a company is financially stable is through a third-party examination which only 10% of applicants pass. I carry out the same application process in my other network CONQUEROR. Like it, we offer each member exclusivity in their city, operating in delimited territories with no overlapping and therefore no competition,” explained Mr Torres.

Globalia Logistics Network was set up in response to the unprecedented demand for membership of Conqueror Freight Network, Antonio Torres’ first freight forwarder network founded back 2010.

“As you can see from our numbers, we still have some way to go to be the same as Conqueror but we have made a good start; size is not everything, the main priority for every network should be the quality of its membership, not the size of it,” he emphasised.

Globalia Logistics Network’s launch comes at the end of a significant year for the industry where freight forwarders experienced many challenges including cargo delays caused by the collapse of the Korean shipper Hanjin, new SOLAS regulations and Brexit causing a drop-in sterling which benefited multinationals not independents to name just a few.

“It is more important than ever for freight forwarders to come together and be part of a network; it’s lonely out there for companies when they face challenges at every turn. Networks should be offering support and assistance to their members and I am proud to say that Globalia and my team will be offering members assistance every which way we can,” Mr Torres said.

Antonio Torres invites interested agents to get in touch. “We would welcome applications from those companies who although not the largest in their city, are the most secure, professional and knowledgeable; especially those whose current network isn’t working for them.”

New Freight Forwarder Network forms to take on multinationals – TT

A new industry group called the Globalia Logistics Network has been formed to align independent freight forwarders to compete with large multinational logistics providers.

The association is accepting applications for membership from ocean and airfreight forwarders. It plans to accept one agent from seaports and airports in 26 U.S. states.

“With the multinationals taking more and more of their business daily, independent forwarders find themselves in a cooperate or die situation which rogue network operators are exploiting,” founder Antonio Torres said. “In the last decade, the majority of the emerging networks have only been interested in one thing; collecting a membership fee. None offer the rigorous selection process we do.”

Globalia investigates the forwarders’ employees, facilities, vehicles, services, business volume, insurance policies and its accreditations, the company said.

“[Applicants] provide financial data for the previous two years and this is forwarded on to Dun & Bradstreet, an extremely reputable third-party auditor. They will review the companies’ financial history and its current status, looking for any anomalies as well as any countrywide issues,” said spokeswoman Anna Barton, who added that nine out of 10 applicants are rejected.

Aside from the United States, the freight network plans to have members in more than 100 countries across North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Oceania region in the Pacific Ocean.

Industry’s Newest Freight Group opens for applications- ARABIANSUPPLYCHAIN.COM

Applications have begun being accepted for membership of the industry’s newest freight group, Globalia Freight Network, which has the Middle East as one of its key air/sea freight hubs worldwide.

The Globalia Freight Network will be accepting applications from agents in the Middle East and the rest of the world, it said in a release.

Globalia is born out of the Conqueror Freight Network founded by Antonio Torres 7 years ago. “Conqueror is the only network to offer exclusivity per city, audit all applicants and only accept those given the green light by an external auditor,” explained Torres.

“Because of the unique nature of Conqueror, the amount of interest in membership is still unprecedented and in truth, there is simply not enough room to accommodate every qualifying company, so, I felt it was right to give more agents the opportunity to enjoy the same benefits through a new network,” he added.

“Some might say that what we are launching is not new, and they would be right. We are offering the same opportunities as Conqueror but for a new group of first class companies, allowing them to work with the same calibre of agents as themselves worldwide,” said Torres.

“With the multinationals taking more and more of their business daily, independent forwarders find themselves in a cooperate or die situation which rogue network operators are exploiting,” he added. “In the last decade, the majority of the emerging networks have only been interested in one thing; collecting a membership fee. None offer the rigorous selection process we do, none offer the financial security we do and none offer the daily support and amount of quality complimentary marketing tools we do.”

Applicants for Globalia Freight Network will undergo a tough selection process including external auditing and those 1/10 applicants accepted will enjoy the first six months free. “This will be a trial -period for both parties,” explains Torres, “thus ensuring that every member is bringing business to the network and adding value to the brand.”
