Lognet Global Conference Moves to Miami

2017-07-14T01:00:04+00:00July 14th, 2017|

We’ve just returned from the Lognet Global Annual Conference, held this year in Miami.

Warm weather brings rest and relaxation, but commerce never stops. Freight must keep moving, getting from point A to point B with speed and efficiency.

Summer is also an excellent time to meet with our global partners, to enjoy the season while trying to build strong working relationships to effectively serve our mutual clients. We’ve traveled overseas to previous conferences, but this year, Lognet Global decided to hold this annual gathering here in the U.S.

GTM executives meeting with international partners

One of our key objectives this year was to meet with as many Lognet Global agents as possible. We brought several members of our staff with us, including Mark Brodie and Robert Gruschow, Managing Members; Gordon O’Leary, Sales Manager; Mike Unsworth, Senior Director Branch and Customs Operations; and Joe Field, Senior Director Domestic Fleet and Warehouse Operations. Our intention was to build strong professional, face-to-face relationships with various international agents. Of course, we also discussed current business and future business opportunities.

Global partnership-building through one-on-one meetings

To grow our logistics business and properly serve our customers, we seek partners that are financially sound, communicate effectively, and are ethical and service-oriented. We want to ensure our GTM clients receive a superior level of care throughout every step of the shipping process. This is our commitment, and we only choose partners who value customer service as highly as we do.

While we were there, we met with several key agent partners, including Max Gulmayo, of AGX Express Philippines; Florencio Venté Coha, from AG Logistics in Colombia, Lisa Tian from Lead One in Guangdong, China; and Thomas Bitter of Westfalia, in Germany.

We welcomed agents to our booth, held many one-on-one meetings and attended social events, even a boat cruise around Biscayne Bay. GTM staff especially enjoyed discussing business as the sun set over the water.

During our meetings, we focused on several of our capabilities, including air import and export, ocean import and export, warehousing and distribution, trucking, customs clearance and final delivery services.

We found that our cohesive door-to-door service appeals to clients and fellow logistics professionals alike, and we remain focused on continuous customer service improvement. This was a successful trip for all of our staff, and we look forward to returning to next year’s conference.
