World Ocean Council – the Global Blue Economy Business Organization – Expands its Scope Significantly with Three Leading International Cargo Logistics Networks
The World Ocean Council is proud to announce that Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC), Priority Cargo Network and Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) have joined the WOC international, multi-industry alliance on action and collaboration in support of ocean sustainable development.
The Networks Director, Wolfgang Karau, stated, “We need to take care of our planet and clean oceans for future generations. Most of our members are based close to shores and waterways and I am sure that our membership with WOC is the right step to manifest our commitment towards a cleaner tomorrow.”
WOC CEO Paul Holthus said, “We are honoured to have the Worldwide Project Consortium, Priority Cargo Network and Cargo Equipment Experts come on board with the WOC. Maritime transport and cargo logistics are central to global economy, moving 90% of international trade – and are thus fundamental to the future of the ocean. The WOC embraces leadership companies large and small from across the sectors and around the globe in creating the collaboration and action needed on ocean sustainable development.”
Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) was founded in 1998 to connect independent project cargo forwarding companies, and to provide a reference source for shippers, carriers and forwarding partners to locate quality project cargo specialists. WWPC spans the globe with membership for one company per country or designated area. This creates an essential framework for conducting trade in the project cargo market, avoiding confusion with subcontractors and allowing the confidential and professional preparation and handling of project related tasks.
Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) is a global platform and tool for project owners and forwarders. The organization provides networking and marketing for owners and operators of specialized and valuable equipment, carriers and manufacturers and asset-based forwarders, working within the heavy and outsized cargo market.
Priority Cargo Network works to identify demands from general freight forwarders for cost effective and dynamic network presentation with a strong brand. With specialized independent freight forwarder members per country, the network enables participating companies to operate more effectively in the global arena.
