Virtual Multinational Forwarder Group Now Extends to a Hundred Cities
(May 20, 2011).- Less than four months after its launch, the pioneering Conqueror Freight Network has “virtual branches” in 100 cities in 58 countries.
This week’s acceptance of Aries Global Logistics, Inc. adds New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Miami to the fast-growing network, which is designed to operate like a multinational freight forwarding group, with a single member per city.
Aries (AGL) was founded in 1985, and has 90 employees. Like all members of the Conqueror group, it was checked out by an independent auditor as part of the selection process, and it meets the highest standards of solvency, size, and reputation. To date, the network has accepted only about 16% of applicants.
Aries president Frank G. D’Ambra said he hoped membership in Conqueror “will increase our reach in markets where we are not represented,” and noted that the network “has already filled in some of the more difficult regions”.
Conqueror is recruiting strong and solvent independent forwarders to act as “virtual branches” in each of the world’s 564 largest cities.
