ACEX RUSSIAN WORLDWIDE ALLIANCE
ACEX AllIANCE HEAD MESSAGE
I am the Board Director of the First Russian Worldwide Logistics Alliance. For already 20 years I have been working in the international logistics and 15 of them I have been leading one of the Russian freight forwarding companies.
Associated Cargo Experts (ACEX) Alliance - is an association of independent logistics companies, primarily in Russia and also in the CIS countries and worldwide.
Freight forwarders from different regions and countries are invited to join the alliance. We are waiting for like-minded people, the best local forwarders in their areas and regions who do not have their own global international coverage, but still wish to develop and expand their international business.
Nowadays in the existing market conditions small and medium-sized companies can’t exist and be successful alone, focusing only on their sector-specific regional market. Competition from the large multinational corporations is becoming tougher and stronger.
By joining the alliance, forwarders together will get a full range of logistics services in any field as air, sea, land transportation, customs clearance, warehousing services or express delivery.
GOALS OF THE ALLIANCE
Our goals are clear and close to every forwarder, who acts at his own risk in complicated market conditions (exchange rates fluctuations, unstable legislation and lack of reliable partners) and include but are not limited to:
- creating a platform for sharing experiences and technologies, which would help participants to compete with global multinational integrators, using their knowledge and working skills as local operators (freight forwarders, customs brokers, transportation companies, warehouse operators);
- creating the possibility to choose among the strongest and the most reliable partners abroad, receiving rates straight from the source, without intermediaries;
- establishing unified standards of service based on the best experience of the strongest and the most successful companies;
- consolidating various freight flows, building logistics supply chains, uniting capabilities and expertise for entering new international markets and expanding the clients’ base;
- increasing profits and reducing expenses of each independent group partner who enters the alliance.
Each member of the Alliance is able to make decisions within the whole group, and any voice is important and decisive.
The goal of the alliance is not a merger of different companies, it is the maintenance of the individuality of each member, its flexibility and uniqueness, the multiplication of these qualities in a single concept, which will allow each single member and all at ones to say their word in the logistics and to be heard by local and international market.
