Our Critical Success Factors

Founded in 2003, Global Logistics Network (GLN) is an ISO 9001:2008 Certified organization that encompasses leading independently owned and operated companies worldwide that specialize in the logistics industry – including freight forwarders, transportation intermediaries and associated companies – all working together in a network environment to benefit from our Power of One philosophy.

Today, GLN has a global presence that spans 596 Offices in 309 Cities in 119 Countries. With combined Annual Revenues of USD 9.5 Billion and 27,675 experienced and capable staff handling over 3 million shipments per year, GLN is larger in size than many multi-national forwarders and integrators.

The purpose and objectives of GLN are to:

  • Act as a worldwide umbrella network of selected members who cooperate under established standards, actively promote and support each other in the handling of profitable freight forwarding, logistics, customs brokerage and related services by the pooling of sales, operational and financial resources.
  • Empower members with the capability to meet customers “Critical Success Factors” so that they may effectively compete with multi-nationals and integrators using innovative marketing and IT initiatives.
  • Embrace a GLN global branding culture for the purpose of RFQ/RFP opportunities.
  • Attract and maintain members who are the leaders in their own local markets with a global vision mentality; that maintain and surpass client satisfaction with a reputable status aligned with the highest integrity and service commitment versus accepted industry standards.
  • Provide “value added facilities” to benefit members, maintain and promote the use of the GLN website to aid and assist the development of new business and to provide any other additional initiatives to benefit members through the Power of One philosophy.
  • Develop a member-responsive network that will cooperate and develop a dynamic synergy, operational integrity and efficiencies with financial stability on a non-exclusive basis.
  • Promote a network methodology that adheres to a philosophy of on-going and continuous quality improvement.

GLN 13th Annual Conference

The 2015 Annual GLN Conference will take place at The Berkeley Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand between October 04-07, 2015.

The conference website is open at www.conf.go2gln.com for Survey & Award Nominations, Conference & Hotel Reservations. You can also view registered Delegates, the Agenda and Sponsorship Opportunities.

The Early Bird Rates expire on August 31, 2015 so please make your reservations within the next 2 weeks!

In addition to our normal Welcome Party on the Sunday evening, pre-scheduled One-on-One Meetings and Cultural Evening Buffet on the Tuesday evening, GLN is offering a number of sightseeing events on Sunday and an optional Chao Phraya River Dinner Cruise on on the Monday evening.

During the Conference, GLN will be launching 3 unique, new and exciting initiatives each designed to directly benefit GLN Members;

Preferred Carrier Initiatives
Freight Settlement Initiative
Freight Software Initiatives

We urge all GLN Members to attend this important event which mixes camaraderie with business development. Empirical evidence shows that GLN Members that attend the Conference gain a significant amount of additional business than those not attending. Besides, it is far easier to start, develop and maintain business when you have met with the decision-maker on the other side.

This year, we will be recognizing not only our Founder Members but also giving special attention to our loyal GLN "10-year members"

Early Bird Delegate fees are only USD 795 for the 1st and USD 645 for the 2nd+ delegate.
