BELONG TO A GLOBAL GROUP

When introducing your Company to customers, you will have the full backing and support of a global network of freight forwarders, meaning that in terms of coverage, services and rates you will be fully able to compete with any other multinational group.

If there is one thing we pay special attention to in CONNECTA it’s the image we project in the market and to potential clients. The reason for this is that we are all very fully aware that in this sector decisions are often made quickly and often the first impression is what shifts the balance.

INTERNET VISIBILITY

Many small and medium sized freight forwarders fail in one aspect that is crucial in today’s competitive market: Internet presence. In CONNECTA we invest a substantial amount of time and money so clients find you online through our network.

CONNECTA is highly visible online and this regularly prompts potential clients to get in touch with us (especially export and import companies)who are searching for transport and logistics services providers. We then refer these contacts to network members who are located closest to these leads.

MARKETING RESOURCES

Use your Membership Certificate and customized Brochure to show your global partnership to customers, agents and suppliers. Or to start a new marketing campaign for your company.

Share news and stories of interest about your company through the network channels (website news, newsletters, Freightlink magazine, emails) and gain publicity.


PROTECTING MEMBERS

Trust is a key element for long-term business relations between members of the CONNECTA freight forwarding network.
For this reason we have a number of protective measures in place that ensure cooperation among freight association members is fully covered.

  • Strict selection of our Members as regards level of turnover, year of establishment, credit risk assessment, payment references, IATA/CASS accreditation, business trajectory, etc.
  • Control and Supervision of all operations made between members in order to avoid financial exposure and smooth cash-flows.
  • Payment Monitoring System and Payment Alert Procedures to prevent late payments and accelerate their satisfactory resolution.
  • Good financial practices. All the transactions between members are based on a series of best practices payments that are inspired on the most extended international trading criteria and rules (i.e. payments at maximum 30 days, observance of risk maps, cash payment depending on country, operation, etc.)
  • Control and arbitrage. The CONNECTA management ensures that cooperation between members is done with honesty and transparency by mediating and arbitrating to resolve disputes. If we detect any activity by a member that doesn’t comply with these rules the account will be suspended.
