COOP img

The Cooperative Logistics Network (The Coop) is a capped non-exclusive alliance of hand-picked freight forwarders in each major air/seaport who co-operate in a financially secure environment to reduce costs and risks and grow their businesses by actively working together to compete against the largest multinationals.


What does the freight forwarding industry look like today?

Large multinationals
On one side are the 10 largest multinationals holding a 44% monopoly of the market and conveniently gaining another 1% each year. Their well-known brands and global appeal ensure that they win the biggest contracts and get the best rates from carriers.

Independent freight forwarders

On the other side are independent freight forwarders who lack a global brand and a network of reliable agents, resulting in an inability to bid for the largest contracts and receive better rates from carriers. They are faced with the prospect of working with unknown agents who rarely send business their way and occasionally break promises. The result of which is dissatisfied customers and some unpaid invoices.

But as a member of The Coop, members immediately gain a global brand, a directory of reliable, financially secure agents who actively work together to bid for the biggest contracts and negotiate lower rates from carriers and insurers.
