Madrid, Spain - The Cooperative Logistics Network (The Coop) is celebrating a double century with the addition of its 200th office.

Founded in 2006, Santa Marina Global Logistics in Shanghai, China, has been accepted to occupy The Coop’s 200th office. Like every member in the network, their reputation and financial credentials were thoroughly checked and verified.

“We are not simply collecting a membership fee; each and every agent is rigorously checked prior to entry, meaning all members can be confident in who they partnering with,” said Network Founder, Antonio Torres.

He continued, “Going it alone has been tried and tested and has failed for independent forwarders the world over, leaving them out in the cold whilst the multinationals scoop up all the business. The solution is a network like The Coop where agents cooperate to succeed.”

“It is a pleasure to be part of a truly global network where members understand the importance of cooperation and are motivated to build their businesses together. I can always find a willing and reliable partner in The Coop,” explained Santa Marina Global Logistics Co., Ltd’s Director, Dino Fei.

“Our ‘cooperate to succeed’ formula is having real appeal. In the 15 months since our launch, our members have seen great results from this style of working and we are accepting many new companies as a result of member referrals,” said Antonio Torres.

The Cooperative Logistics Network’s total coverage now stands at 207 offices in 144 cities in 91 countries. “We invite strong, solvent, independent forwarders interested in growing their businesses through mutual cooperation to get in touch with us,” said Antonio Torres.
