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.
