Freight Forwarder Leader, CQR Male, Chosen by Maritime Solution Leader Boskalis

The leading global maritime solutions provider, Boskalis International, recently called upon the services of the leading Maldivian freight forwarder, CQR Male, to handle the shipping of 18 Float Hoses and Anchor Pipes to Kenya for the Mombasa Port Development Project.

These hoses are used for the refuelling of docked vessels. The Ocean Logistics PVT Ltd team packed and loaded the 13.5 MT hoses onto a Delmas vessel, where the team also took care of the lashing.

Despite only being in operation for 5 years, Ocean Logistics has expanded to 3 offices and the company is now able to provide “end to end logistics services” across the 1,190 islands which make up The Maldives. Marketing Manager Prashan Pathirana says the secret to their rapid success lies in their team’s vast local knowledge, short lead times and professional handling of every shipment.

Conqueror is born

Madrid, Spain, January 4, 2011 – The world’s first “virtual multinational” freight forwarder began operating today as the first 50 members began contacting each other to start doing business together.

The Conqueror Freight Network, designed to equip qualified members with the tools and organizational infrastructure to compete in an industry increasingly dominated by a dozen multinational “mega forwarders”, began accepting applications for membership on September 15, 2010.

So far only about 15% of applicants met the group’s high admission standards.

The first 50 members, who have agreed to submit to Conqueror’s rules for “disciplined cooperation”, and to use each other for 50% of their shipments as the network grows, will operate on a trial basis until June, paying no membership fees until then.

Located in 47 cites in 33 countries, together they boast a total of 5880+ employees, 250,000+ shipments in 2009.

Within two years Conqueror hopes to fill the 564 slots in its network, providing coverage in all the world’s major cities.

Freight Forwarders Network Streamlines Process – SUPPLYCHAIN DIGITAL

The Conqueror freight forwarders network has simplified its membership application process. The Conqueror network was inundated with applications, which has prompted it to streamline the membership application procedure. Applicants must now complete a single form, while extra staff have been taken on to deal with the backlog.

Antonio Torres, who designed the network of freight forwarders, said: “We had a bigger response than we bargained for, and in our zeal to identify the most qualified candidates, we had asked for too much information and too many documents.”

Since the September 15 launch, hundreds of applications and thousands of emails were received, network coordinator Russell Whittington said. This forced the postponement of promotional campaigns on several continents.

Conqueror Forwarder Network to Operate Like multinational – Start One Public Relations

A new high-level freight forwarders network will operate as a “virtual multinational”, with obligatory cooperation among members, a single worldwide brand, exclusive territories, and other advantages now enjoyed only by the biggest players.

Starting today, applications are being accepted to join the Conqueror Freight Network (www.conquerornetwork.com), in which carefully selected members will work with each other on at least 50% of their shipments and follow other rules to maximize the benefits of “disciplined cooperation”, enabling them to compete against the largest forwarding group.

“The idea is to mobilize the top rank of independents to work together as another ‘mega-forwarder’, while keeping their independence”, explains Antonio Torres, a freight forwarding veteran and mastermind of the Madrid-based Conqueror network. “But this calls for high admissions standards and for intelligent, monitored cooperation among our members”.
