WHO WE ARE
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?
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.
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
