2020 has winded up being one of the most inopportune years of the century which was marked by the pandemic, health hazards, lockdown and the resulting economic crisis. The supply chain industry nonetheless, has continued to play the leading role in providing indispensable services even during the peak of the pandemic. Many of the Globalia members have played a domineering role in organizing the movement of medicines, PPEs, and hospital supplies to places where it is most required and we would like to say a big congratulation for their commendable effort.
The achievement of our network in 2020 has also been significant and in spite of all the challenges, we have continued to provide our members with all the means required to augment their businesses. Let us now take a quick look at all the accomplishments of the Globalia team in 2020.
A successful Virtual Meeting for increased collaboration and networking
Globalia’s 1st ever Virtual Meeting conducted over our member-exclusive meeting platform has allowed our agents to do their networking and increase their share of business within the network even in the year of the pandemic. The meeting afforded the members the yearly opportunity of touching base with their network partners for discussing the prospects of exchange of projects.
The new features of FreightViewer
Globalia’s member-exclusive TMS FreightViewer has allowed our members to be at the cutting edge of digitization and enabled them to compete with the big players in the industry by automation of a number of important business processes.
We are working on the integration of the main co-loader’s buying tariffs on an international scale into FreightViewer. For this reason, we have signed an agreement with SHIPCO to offer their LCL buying rates online through FreightViewer and we are in the process of negotiating the same with WEBCARGONET which will enable us to upload and update more than 14 million buying airfreight rates to FreightViewer. Our partnership with Onus Cargo Services (an insurance broker offering rates from different insurance companies) will allow you to insure your cargo directly through FreightViewer, thus making the process even easier.
Almost 40 new members
Globalia Logistics Network has welcomed almost 40 new members in 2020, which is a big achievement we shall celebrate, taking into account that this has been a pretty hard year worldwide. Little by little, Globalia is increasing its coverage with the aim to become a network with reprepsentatives in the most important countries in the world.
Custom-made online brochures for members
Globalia has designed a customizable online brochure for boosting the brand image of our members. The idea behind the creation of this brochure was to maximize the corporate identity of our members and promoting their brand. Our agents were able to personalize the design of their corporate brochure, include their logo, brand colours and add their own company information.
A brand new blog section on our website
The Globalia website now comes with a new “Blog” section where we have been publishing useful and instructive posts on several topics related to our sector as well as the network. The purpose is to keep the members well-versed with all the trends and important news from the industry.
We are pretty sure that the arrival of a vaccine will put an end to the ongoing crisis. Till then stay safe!
