RECENT ENQUIRIES
We receive regular enquiries from forwarders asking to join our network. These are sometimes in our full countries where we have long waiting lists, but we have also heard recently from companies in Luxembourg, Angola and Bolivia. We will let you know if any of the enquirers are strong enough to join our elite group.

BIRTHDAYS
Many of our members have added their birthdays to the members’ website. If you too would like to be wished a Happy Birthday by us and your partners, please send your birthday to Debbie. 😊

UPDATED LOGOS
As you may know, we recently updated our logos. We encourage you to use the WFN logo on your email signature, website, social media and anywhere else you’d like. Please find below our new logo, which has been tweaked again to a brighter red, since I last sent it:

Please also find below the special ‘Approved Member’ logo, which can be used to show prospective clients that you are well connected in a global network. If you would like this logo in a higher resolution, ask Debbie.

COMMUNICATION
Good communication within the network is important and we are here to assist in making sure our members are responsive. Please bear in mind the following when you’re in touch with WFN members:

Acknowledge rate requests

Even if you’re not able to give a full response with rates immediately, a quick acknowledgement that you’re working on it, is needed, so your partner knows you’ve received the request.

Provide feedback

It is frustrating to have provided rates and then never hear anything back. Indeed, if feedback is never provided and business never materialises, it will put people off answering at all in future. Again, some quick feedback of the outcome is a necessary courtesy.

Mark emails as WFN Requests

It’s a good idea to make it clear that you belong to WFN, so that your fellow partners can prioritise your requests and also be confident that you’re a high quality agent (having had WFN membership approved). Add ‘WFN Enquiry’ into the subject line and insert the Approved WFN Member logo (above) into your email signature.

Check Junk Mail regularly

At Head Office we increasingly find mails go to Junk Mail and are missed, even to/from members we’ve been mailing for years. Please regularly check your Junk Mail and ask your IT dept to ensure your partners are on your safelist. If you have sent emails to other members and they’re not being received, please use WhatsApp or phone to follow up. It may be that spam filters are the culprit. 

Utilise WFN Head Office where appropriate

You’re always encouraged to let us know if you’re waiting on a response so we can make sure communication is smooth.  

We hope you find the above tips useful; if all are followed, we can keep dealings harmonious and breed more closeness, going forward.
