SALES ENQUIRIES AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Despite global economies being hit, forwarders continue to contact us about joining WFN. Recently, for countries where we have space, we’ve received enquiries from the Ivory Coast, and Ghana. Naturally, we’ve received countless more enquiries for countries where we are already full, passing them onto our sister networks. We’ll let you know if any of the enquirers are strong enough to join our elite group. 

If you know of forwarders looking for a network, please mail Debbie with your recommendations. If a recommendation joins us within a month of you passing us their details, we will discount your next membership renewal fee as a thank you for your help.

SPECIALIST GROUPS

Albert Wei at Vizion Logistics in USA has asked you to share your thoughts regarding having Specialist Groups within WFN. I pointed out that we have a search function in the WFN Member Website, where you can search for the members who have confirmed that they can handle that type of service. It pulls up a list of members for you and enables you to send an enquiry. Albert further stated:

‘We have identified our specialized fields in our profile but unless someone looks us up, they would not know we specialize in these specific industries or products. By having a “Specialist Group” we can all reach out only to those agents and make communication easier.’

Please share your thoughts on the above. If you like, we can add the profile page information to the attached Excel Member List, if you think that will be useful?

Regarding specialisms, please note that we are about to expand the current list that you can tick on your company profile page, which is here below. Please check that all your services are ticked on your profile page:

Air Freight

Sea Freight

Project Cargo

Personal Effects

Live Animals

Time Sensitive

Dangerous Cargo

Perishable Cargo

Road Freight

We will soon be adding 3 new services to the list:

Temp Control

E-commerce

ISO / Flexitank

Please let Debbie know if your company can handle these services.

SAVE THE DATE: WFN MEETING 2024: 17 – 19 MARCH, 2024

We will finally be back around to our preferred time of the year for our meeting in 2024. You have one year’s notice, so if you’re not joining us in Costa Rica, you’ll be expected to meet your partners in March 2024. The location for 2024 will be revealed at our meeting in Costa Rica. I have chosen a main hub. In theory, will you be there? Please let us know, as if I’m not going to see you this year, I’d love to know that I’ll be seeing you next year?

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

In just over 3 months, we will be gathering in Costa Rica at the Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Convention Center for our next member meeting. My team and I can’t wait to see you.

Meeting fee: $799 (‘Early Bird’ fee has now expired)

THANK YOU to the 120 delegates who are making meeting your fellow members a priority. We are going to have the BEST TIME! I can’t wait to see everybody below. If you’ve not signed up yet, might you be joining us?

We are unlikely to return to the Americas for a considerable amount of time. It was 2014 (9 years ago!) when we were last there, after all. So, if you’re nearer to Costa Rica than the rest of the world, take full advantage and meet us there in June.

ANNUAL GOLF GAME

Every year, Tim Taylor arranges a golf game. This will be Wednesday 21 June, meeting at 8.00am, with a short walk to the course. Please mail ttaylor@worldwidelp.com to sign up. Please ensure you sign up by 18th May at the latest, so Tim can protect tee times.

ANNUAL FOOTBALL GAME

So our generous Costa Rican host knows how many people to expect, please let Debbie know if you’ll be playing in the annual football game this year. Let her know if keen to spectate too, so that transport can be provided for everybody.

CITY AND CAVES TOUR: WEDNESDAY 21.06.23 at 9am – 2pm

There will be a tour available on Wednesday morning: “Culture and Mystical: A different city tour, for discovering the capital and the mystical Villa Caves. A hidden treasure!” Price per person: USD 65. Price includes:

  • Round trip transportation
  • Bilingual guide (English/Spanish)
  • Visit to San Jose Down Town
  • Tour at Villa Caves
  • Lunch

This company will be providing the service: Willy Tours Costa Rica | T: +506 2221-7777. To book your place, please let Debbie know that you would like to attend, and mail Krisbel Bonilla: reservas@willytour.com to arrange payment. For any questions or cancellations, please mail Krisbel.
