CONQUEROR in IFW, May 2011

Less than four months after its debut, virtual freight forwarder group Conqueror Freight Network has launched “virtual branches” in 100 cities in 58 countries. The group said it was recruiting “strong and solvent” independent forwarders to act as “virtual branches” in each of the world’s 564 largest cities. Network Development Manager Russell Whittington said: “The idea is to equip our members with all the advantages previously enjoyed only by the mega-forwarders, including a global network of reliable agents, exclusive software to delimit territories, a payment-protected environment and even a dispute resolution service.”
