Globalia Logistics Network begins operations – AJOT

Globalia – Best freight forwarder Network- 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.”

Globalia Logistics Network has begun operations today (Wednesday 15 December) with 52 member companies in 74 cities across 56 countries. The network was founded by Antonio Torres in response to the demands for membership of Conqueror Freight Network, his first freight forwarder network founded in 2010.

Globalia says its launch comes at the end of a challenging year for freight forwarders including the collapse of the Korean shipper Hanjin, new SOLAS regulations, and Brexit devaluing the pound sterling, which it says benefitted multinationals but not independents.

Torres says applicants were subjected to a strict selection process, explaining: “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.”

He adds: “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.”

 “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.

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.

New Globalia Forwarder Network accepts only top flight operators – SHIPPING GAZETTE

The Conqueror Freight Network has set up the ‘Globalia Logistics Network”, which will be open exclusively to “first class” freight forwarders in each air and seaport location. Applicants for Globalia will undergo a rigorous selection process including external auditing. The one in 10 applicants accepted will enjoy six months’ membership for free, reports London’s Air Cargo News.

 Globalia founder Antonio Torres explained the importance of networks for independent forwarders: “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.

“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.

“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.”

The freight forwarding network was founded by Antonio Torres, six years after launching Conqueror Freight Network, which had reached capacity, so he launched Globalia, to be a clone of Conqueror.

Torres says Globalia has been receiving dozens of applications and only one in 10 have made it through to the second stage, the auditing by Dun & Bradstreet.

He says: “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.”

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.

best freight forwarders network

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.”
