At SFN, it is indeed all about 100%...
"Happy Birthday to SFN, Happy Birthday to SFNNNN..." The first year is key in the growth of any new company. Specialist Freight Networks has had an excellent first year and SFN Head Office are full of happiness and joy, in light of all that has been achieved in the Networks first year.
Despite 9 years' experience of hosting physical Annual Conferences worldwide, SFN Managing Director, Kelly Bunyan, decided to break the mould and revolutionise the concept of a Freight Conference.
It is true that 'Anniversary' ought to be an Annual celebration. However, SFN Head Office is so excited by the progress its Networks have made, that it can't help but mark the 6 month, mid-way Anniversary.
After just 2 months since its launch, Specialist Freight Networks (SFN) already has representatives in every continent of the world. The Networks coverage has swiftly expanded from Europe, where its head office is based, to Africa, Middle East, Asia, Australasia and the Americas. To have such expansive coverage worldwide so soon, is a tremendous achievement.
In a world full of choice...iPhone or Blackberry, Audi or Mercedes, Armani or Guess...it is time that Freight Networking caught up and also offered variety; Specialist Freight Networks (SFN) is doing just that. SFN Members are tailoring their SFN Memberships to their needs, rather being expected to fit within the confines of a prescribed formula.
Year after year, new Freight Networks spring up, promising wonderful returns for an annual investment - ranging from minimal to extortionate. Often these new Networks are started up by a Freight Forwarder whom witnesses the achievements of the world's leading Networks and thinks that, "it looks easy enough to replicate that success" - they're out to earn a fast buck. Not too surprisingly, a year or two passes and these Networks are nowhere to be seen. The fact that they disappear doesn't deter others from trying; the endless cycle or recycling continues - Freight Forwarders are bombarded by Freight Network invitations on a weekly basis.
