ELITE introduces new facilities for freight forwarders
ELITE Association of Logistic Networks, the independently- owned logistics and freight-forwarder networks in the world, has made significant progress since its foundation less than 12 months ago. Roy Stapleton, President, Global Logistics Network ( GLN) and cofounder, ELITE, said, “With a combined membership of over 3,450 logistics companies in 7,000+ offices around the world, ELITE members have a combined annual turnover of over US$ 60 billion. With 10 of the world’s leading freight forwarder networks joining the association, ELITE has made significant inroads in providing the industry with a clear pathway for logistics companies and shippers to locate and utilise networks. Recently, the association introduced three new facilities for its members. The new benefits include ELITE Insurance, ELITE Technology and ELITE Courier.
ELITE is now able to offer all member companies world-beating, flexible and high- quality cargo and freight services liability ( FSL) insurance products through ELITE Insurance.
To ensure that all freight forwarders are able to meet and exceed current and future demands for electronic global connectivity and security regulations in the new ‘paperless environment’, the association has also created ELITE Technology. With the Worldwide Information Network ( WIN), all member forwarders now have access to this system. It is connecting forwarding agents with each other and with brokers, air/ sea carriers and other logistics service providers.
