Expansion in Africa and Poland with three additional franchises has set a new milestone for logistics network, the Worldwide Project Consortium, with global membership now totaling 100 in 86 countries.
WWPC General Manager, Kevin Stephens, based in Queensland, Australia, said today the recent appointment of Southern African Cargo Logistics cc in Zimbabwe and Botswana and Benad Forwarders Nig, Nigeria, and Hecksher Polska Sp. Z.o.o. in Poland had achieved the 100 membership milestone for the first time.
“The WWPC was launched in 1998 with just 30 members, and eight years later has grown to be the largest dedicated project forwarding company in the world,” Mr Stephens said.
“This is a wonderful achievement, due largely to the hard work and dedication of the WWPC Directors, and the positive word-of-mouth from our clients, and track record of success of our members.”
Mr Stephens said the development and growth of the WWPC was mirrored by the support and attendance at the Consortium’s annual Partnering for the Future Conference.
The 7th Annual Conference to be held in Cape Town, South Africa, from March 29-30, 2007, would be the most successful to date and has attracted a record 100 participants.
Major sponsors at the conference included Rickmers-Linie GmbH, Germany; Volga-Dnepr (UK) Limited; Air Partner plc, U.K.; Macs Maritime, South Africa; Beluga Chartering GmbH, Germany; and Sun Communications PR and Media, Australia.
