The world's largest dedicated project forwarding company, Worldwide Project Consortium, continues to expand in the lead up to its annual conference in South Africa during March with seven new franchise appointments.
WWPC General Manager, Kevin Stephens, speaking from the company’s headquarters in Queensland, Australia, said today (February 22, 2007) representatives had now been appointed in Cambodia, Pakistan, Egypt, Philippines, United Arab Emirates, Azerbaijan and Bahrain.
“The think local work global formula has ensured the phenomenal growth of the WWPC from a core group of 30 to partnerships that now stretch around the world under a unique agreement whereby all members can operate under a single name and brand,” Mr Stephens said.
“This franchise arrangement means that the WWPC is the largest dedicated project forwarding company in the world with the scale and critical mass to tender for oversize, breakbulk, heavylift cargo projects anywhere in the world,” he said.
“The strength of the WWPC rests firmly with the quality and credibility of its individual members who join the organisation by invitation only.”
The recent expansion includes: Global Link Service Pte Ltd (Phnom Penh, Cambodia), Blue Sea Shipping Lines (Karachi, Pakistan), Khedivial Marine Logistics S.A.E. (Cairo, Egypt), Royal Cargo Combined Logistics Inc (Manila, Philippines), Triple Crown Shipping and Logistics (United Arab Emirates, Dubai), Consolidated Shipping Line (Manama, Bahrain) and DGT Logistics (Baku, Azerbaijan).

Major conference sponsors 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.
