Africa Logistics’ extensive experience in the Mozambican business coupled with its strong network of partners and expertise in the maritime industry has a huge potential to strengthen its position in the extremely fast-growing Oil & Gas Services industry in Mozambique. In 2011, off the coast of Mozambique, one of the largest gas fields in the world was discovered, with up to 15 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in place. It is expected that exploration of the field will commence the coming years.

RBG Oil and Gas is offering oil and gas operations along with a wide range of marine and offshore services to support their exploration, development and production requirements. In the words of Gilles Verlé, Sales & Marketing Manager, of Royal Burger Group, “The Port of Beira is a perfect Gateway Port for Central African countries such as Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Southern part of DRC Congo; it is also referred to as “The Beira Corridor”. We are already using this trade lane for handling raw tobacco leaf shipments originating out of these countries.”
Mr Gilles Verlé has further added: “Our oil and gas services include- vessel supply, solid and liquid waste management and staff training. We ensure that the highest standards of quality and safety are maintained in our operations which would enable us to offer all sorts of tailor-made solutions for any offshore demands of our clients.”

Globalia covers 100+ countries in just 8 months

Currently the network has coverage in 130 cities, whose members together employ around 4,300 people.

GLOBALIA Logistics Network, the exclusive network of the highest calibre freight forwarders, was launched just over 8 months ago and has already reached a membership coverage of 101 countries.

“We are very proud of this significant upsurge, since the network only began operations last December. This fact is even more impressive when you consider that for every 100 applications we receive, just 10 are accepted. This is because all our members need to pass our very tough selection process, including an audit by third party auditor DUN & BRADSTREET before acceptance.” said Antonio Torres, Manager of GLOBALIA Logistics Network.

Currently the network has coverage in 130 cities, whose members collectively employ around 4,300 people. “Our predictions are very optimistic for the coming year, we are expecting to grow at the same rate in order to extend our coverage worldwide”. Antonio Torres continues.

GLOBALIA Logistics Network has already scheduled its 2nd Annual Meeting for the 9th to 11th May 2018 in Bali, Indonesia. ”We believe that the Annual Meeting we organise every year is the best benefit of membership. It is the perfect platform for members to promote their businesses internationally, do deals and establish long-term partnerships”, Antonio Torres added.

Anniversary Celebrations for GLB Milan

We are honoured to announce that February 8, 2017, marked the 35th Anniversary of GLB Milan agent, Columbia Transport SRL. 

The company was founded in 1982 by Mr. Giovanni De Luca, who was so inspired by the Columbia Space Shuttle, the first orbiter to fly into space, that he named the company after that shuttle.

Columbia Transport SRL is now managed by his son Enrico De Luca, who has been in the freight forwarding industry for 30 years working with the company, first in sales and then in operations.

 Enrico, together with his team of experienced and motivated staff, work every day to ensure that their customers get the personalised service they have come to expect.

 The success and longevity of the company is based on the faithful support of a large client base from around the globe. It is a testament to the quality of the service, that many of their clients have been with the firm from its creation.

 Columbia Transport SRL looks forward to continuing to meet the needs of their clients with professional and innovative services in the years to come.

 GLOBALIA would like to congratulate Columbia Transport SRL on this milestone and invite members with shipments in Milan to get in touch with the Columbia Transport SRL team.

Exclusive Network draws a crowd – UK HAULIER

Limerick, Ireland, 02/11/2016- Since its launch as the newest freight forwarder network on the block just two months ago, Globalia Logistics Network has been inundated with applications for membership and visits to its website (www.globalialogisticsnetwork.com).

“The response is as we expected; there are a lot of companies out there that want exclusivity in their city, financially secure partners and a network team that will support them on a daily basis,” said Antonio Torres, founder of Globalia Logistics Network, “We are receiving dozens of applications daily and due to our rigorous selection process, only 1/10 applications is making it through to the second stage, the auditing by DUN & BRADSTREET.”

He continued, “Some might say that 1/10 isn’t very many to be passing the application process and they would be right, it isn’t. However, what it does mean is that our network has only the most financially stable and secure companies as members. The financial risks of working with our members is almost non-existent.”

Globalia Logistics Network is just the second network to offer this kind of financial scrutiny of its members and thus security for its members. The other being Conqueror Freight Network which was also founded by Mr Torres. “Conqueror was reaching capacity and the only way for other professional forwarders to get the same benefits was to launch another network, a clone of Conqueror,” he said.

“In the past six years, since we launched Conqueror, not a single new network has come out offering the level of benefits or scrutiny of its applicants that we do. Most of the networks out there just want to take a membership fee in exchange for a phone book of members; no marketing tools, no dedicated PR team promoting both within and outside the network, I could go on,” explained Antonio.

“You would be forgiven for asking why freight forwarders are joining these networks and the truth is that as the multinationals gain 1% of the market annually, forwarders have little choice but to work together even if that means taking a risk in joining a such network,” continued Antonio Torres.

“Those who successfully pass the membership process will enjoy 6 months’ free membership. When that time is up, agents should know whether or not the network is working for them. It can’t be more transparent than that,” said Membership Development Manager, Francisco Perez.
