Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
IMPEX Logistics, an international logistics consulting company, has successfully launched an Ocean Transportation Purchasing Cooperative for small and medium-size NVOCC’s and has secured its inaugural member. The sole purpose of the IMPEX-managed cooperative is to secure lower rates for small and medium-size NVOCC’s, so they can more effectively compete with larger NVOCC’s.
“We had more than 40 NVOCC’s register for our recent webinar announcing the IMPEX NVOCC Purchasing Cooperative,” said Randy Smith, President of IMPEX Logistics. “We were thrilled with this initial response from the NVOCC community, which validates our belief that small and medium-size NVOCC’s are desperate to find ways to become more price-competitive with their larger counterparts.”
Cargo Transport Systems, a NVOCC and freight forwarder, was the first member to join the IMPEX’s NVOCC Ocean Transportation Purchasing Cooperative.
“While we are more nimble and service-oriented than our larger NVOCC counterparts, our customers need the competitive pricing provided by IMPEX,” said Matthew Mirizzi, President, Cargo Transport. “When we heard that IMPEX was putting together a cooperative of small and medium-size NVOCC’s to aggregate volumes across its members and secure more competitive ocean transportation rates, we knew immediately this would be a critical strategic partnership for us.”
