Conqueror Freight Network, the largest exclusive freight forwarders network in the world, has this year completed 10 years in the industry. It has celebrated this special occasion during the Conqueror’s 2nd Virtual Meeting, held on 29th and 30th November. As a token of appreciation, a touching video with the best highlights during the past decade was screened before the Speech delivered by Antonio Torres, Conqueror’s President and Founder.
During the event, which saw network members representing more than 50 countries worldwide coming together, the delegates conveyed their appreciation for the video and expressed their pride to be a part of the Conqueror family.
“I have been a member of Conqueror since 2011 and have seen it grow. The video played at the Event was very heart-warming, since it made me remember all the good moments we have had at the Meetings, the friends we have met there and all the work and efforts we made along these years”, says one of the Conqueror members in India.
Conqueror was launched back in 2011 as an exclusive network for freight forwarders. Since then, it has been helping independent freight forwarders from around the world to effectively compete against the largest multinationals of this sector. The network started its operations with 47 cities in 33 countries and now it has more than 260 members across 137 countries, becoming the largest exclusive international freight forwarders network.
Torres said: “We have come a long way since the foundation of our network. All these years, we have grown together, expanded our business, established long-term relationships, being present in 10 editions of Virtual and Annual Meetings. Since the very first moment, there has been a fantastic personal and professional relationship among all Conqueror members, that is why I would like to thank all of them for their trust throughout these years, and even more in these difficult moments.”
During all these years, Conqueror’s Annual Meetings have helped freight forwarders to get together for enhanced networking and better prospects of project exchanges. “Conqueror’s 1st Annual Meeting at Phuket in 2012 gave the members the first insight into the immense potential of this network. This is why there couldn’t have been a better time to celebrate our 10th Anniversary with our members than the Second Virtual Meeting,” continued Torres.
Conqueror’s custom-made meeting platform allowed each delegate to schedule a maximum of 28 videoconferences with their international logistics partners, scheduling a total of 1680 videoconferences. Additionally, this year, the participants got the option of accessing a chat room with up to five random partners and engaging in friendly chitchats.
The delegates also attended the FreightViewer workshops where Andrea Martin, Conqueror’s FreightViewer coordinator showcased the several utilities of Conqueror’s member-exclusive TMS.
“One of the Conqueror’s biggest achievements in the last ten years is the creation of our own digital freight quote generation platform. We are the first international network with global coverage to launch instant quoting ability for our members, through FreightViewer,” continued Torres. “Our team always strives for more and better services, in order to provide members with the most innovative and unique benefits – apart from FreightViewer, every year we increase the wide range of logistics and marketing services we offer our members.”
