On the occasion of its partner meeting on 27 May in Prague, the cooperation for general cargo, System Alliance Europe, announced its data for the business year 2007. According to the statement, the number of European groupage consignments of all cooperation partners increased by some six percent from 10.2 to 10.8 million. This figure corresponds to 10.6 million tons handled by the member branches.
Turnover and employees on the upswing
More employees generate more turnover: this formula definitely applies to the network partners. That way, their worldwide turnover developed from 8.6 billion euros in 2006 to 9.5 billion euros in the last business year. 48,000 employees committed themselves to this outcome; in the previous year the number of employees still amounted to just over 40,000.
’Logistics with 9-Star Quality’
The cooperation partners now present themselves through a marketing and PR concept presented at the partner meeting at the end of May. Under the slogan ’Logistics with 9-Star Quality’ quality and performance features characterising the network are defined for each star of the logo. “These qualitative advantages are decisive for the consignors and account for the success of our partners”, said Oliver Rüter, chairman of the Steering Committee. He continues to explain: “The members of our network excel as European players offering local competence and service as well as flexibility, innovation and tailor-made, pan-European solutions for our customers.”
New cooperation partners
By integrating new partners and branches in Denmark, Germany, Great Britain and Italy, System Alliance Europe managed to further consolidate the network. The cooperation now counts 46 partners in 22 countries with 154 branches.
