Virtual Multinational Network members meet in the flesh- Logistics View

Phuket- a staggering 90 members from the world’s first virtual freight network, Conqueror, gathered for its inaugural conference, 23rd-25th May

An unprecedented number of delegates for a first conference, 90 in total from 40 countries, made the journey to Thailand. “Considering what other networks have managed at their initial conferences, this number is a great achievement,” said Antonio Torres, the brains behind this ‘one of a kind ‘freight forwarding network.

This one off ‘Virtual Multinational’ is paving the way for a new generation of networks which want to mobilize independent freight forwarders to work together as global ‘mega-forwarders.’
This desire to join forces was evident at the conference as members vied for each other’s time across every aspect of the conference. “At the heart of Conqueror is mutual cooperation,” explained Torres. “Without it, the network simply would not function.” The 3-day conference provided over 1,600+ one-to-one meetings to enable members to strengthen this cooperation.
“One perk of Conqueror’s focus on cooperation, is that all the members do business with a give and take attitude,” said one member. “This cooperation is made even easier by each of us being the only agent in our city which, of course, cuts out all competition. What’s left is a desire to work together.”

Independent and logistics operators meet: New Trans

Freight and logistics is of course by definition the ultimate multinational business and as technology advances executives globally are becoming aware of the potential of international cooperation without the need for thousands of miles of air travel to formulate trade agreements. It was with this thought in mind that Antonio Torres first came up with the idea of what he calls a ‘Virtual Multinational’ paving the way for what he considers a new generation of networks which want to mobilize independent freight forwarders to work together as global ‘mega-forwarders.’ Last week however the members of this brainchild travelled to Thailand to meet their mutual partners in the flesh at the inaugural conference of Conqueror which Mr Torres says is the world’s first virtual freight network. Ninety members from forty different countries met in Phuket from the 23rd to 25th May as part of Conqueror’s target of setting up an exclusive ‘virtual branch’ in each of the 472 major cities in the 175 countries it has identified.

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.
