Dear WFN Members

I hope you’re well and have had a great start to the year.

DEPARTING SISTER NETWORK MEMBERS

As you know, our sister network IFN members have access to some of your details, for countries where we don’t yet have an IFN member. The following IFN members have been terminated due to late payment and a lack of response: Flyfresh, Belgium and MDL, Italy. Please let us know if these members owe you any money. Please also note that Worldlink A & O Singapore is no longer an IFN member.

YOUR STORY

I would like to invite you to write to us and share your story. How you are, how your company is doing, how you got into forwarding. We’ll then share this on our news page and in the next update. It’s a great way to promote your company. If you would like to share other company news, you’re also welcome to. Please mail Debbie to arrange.

WFN MEETING: COSTA RICA (18 – 20 JUNE 2023)

We will be gathering in Costa Rica at the Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Convention Center, 18 – 20 June 2023. I can’t wait to see you. 

THANK YOU to everybody for signing up. It’s great that we have reached over 100 delegates already! 😊 Get behind the event and get our delegate list back up to the numbers we used to experience before COVID-19. 

Attending the meetings is the best way to make the most of your membership. The events create business and friendship between you and your fellow members and are essential to the success of our network and its members. 

We’re so fortunate to be able to travel and gather, after being denied the opportunity for so long. We should take full advantage before another reason gets in our way. I hope you will join us, especially if you weren’t able to attend in Croatia last year. Mail Debbie to sign up.

PAYMENT MONITORING SYSTEM

The Payment Monitoring System (PMS) is available for all members, as an easy way to manage payments within the network. Simply log in and enter the details of your invoice and the system will keep track of it for you. A statement is sent by the system every 2 weeks, as a reminder for the owing party and to save admin time for the owed party. It’s in everyone’s best interest to keep payments smooth and timely and this system is here to remind, rather than to discipline. If you receive one of the automated statement emails, please note that you have not been reported to Head Office. Your partner is just making use of the system, which we encourage. 

As soon as the payment is received, we ask that the invoice is marked as paid in the system. If you have sent a payment and still receive a reminder, it usually means that the amount has not yet reached your partner’s account, or they have not yet had time to remove it. Just let Debbie know and she can resolve this. Similarly, if you have already made an arrangement to pay later than the due date (e.g. adding a small amount to another invoice, to save on bank charges), that’s not a problem. You can ignore the reminder on those occasions. For all invoices showing as overdue in the system, Debbie will check with the owed party as to the situation. She will then follow up for payment, remind them to mark the invoice as paid if relevant, or leave it between you if other arrangements have been made.

WFN WHATSAPP GROUP

Many of our members use WhatsApp as a means of quick communication. We have a WFN WhatsApp group where members share company news/shipments and are often requesting rates. If you would like to be added to the group, please forward your number to Debbie via email.
