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.
