During Transport Logistics China in Shanghai, the two leading specialization networks Neutral Air Partner and OceanX agreed on a strategic cooperation, for the benefit of their members. The two networks intend to cooperate in the areas of marketing, promotion and information technology. Leveraging the strength of both organizations and enabling the members to benefit from various advantages across the two networks.
The collaboration will further expand to the sector of temperature controlled as well as sea-air cargo, where the two networks are working with industry experts to jointly develop innovative solutions for the industry.
Christos Spyrou, Founder & CEO of Neutral Air Partner stated:
“Since the word logistics became trendy, the industry has lost its identity as far as specialization concerns. NAP and Ocean X are the only networks to focus on innovation, industry specialization and vertical expertise exclusively for like-minded professionals.
Our partnership with OceanX provides to our members access to a platform of sea freight experts filtered by carrier, vertical, trade lane specialization and industry expertise. In addition to our ocean freight procurement benefit, we will be appointed as the preferred global air cargo vendor for Ocean X.“
Ruben Huber, Founder & Director of OceanX further outlined: „The two networks do share a very similar set of values and focus on expertise, providing alternatives to the increasing commoditization within our industry. Both intend to go well beyond just network facilitation but aim for reinvention from within the industry. Through this partnership, OceanX members will be able to benefit from access to leading airfreight services provided by strong players in their field.“
The two organizations will present their objectives during the 2nd ACE Air Cargo Event & Global Air Cargo Solutions meeting, which will take place at the St. Regis Shanghai on May 13th-17th 2018. The event is sponsored by TIACA and Neutral Air Partner and involves three days of workshops and networking, with a strong focus on face-to-face scheduled meetings.
