Specialist Freight Networks
Based in London, Specialist Freight Networks’ Founder, Kelly Bunyan, provides SFN Members with access to 255+ professional Freight Forwarders in 155+ countries. Being ISO 9001 Certified (No: 198345), SFN leads by example; all Members are striving for excellence in all aspects of their operations.
Specialist Freight Networks connects 12,000+ employees, in 800+ branch offices, covering 2400+ air and sea ports.
Not only would SFN Membership provide you with the opportunity to receive new business from your newfound partners, but also it would help you to convert more sales as your potential clients would have full confidence in your company, knowing that you are internationally connected. At SFN you would have access to dedicated, expert partners to finish the job you start, as professionally and competently as if you had your own office in the destination country – your clients will be impressed by this.
Even though a high volume of cargo is exchanged within SFN, the financials within the network are super strong. Due to the sense of family within SFN, coupled with Kelly Bunyan’s strong leadership, since SFN was formed, 99%-100% of payments have been honoured, year on year. This statistic is exceptional and certainly not achievable outside the safe confines of SFN. A payment protection scheme is therefore simply just not required. In fact, SFN Members chose not to opt into a scheme, as they do not feel it is needed.
Acknowledging the advantages of both Exclusive and Non-Exclusive Networks, SFN provides both types of associations in a specialised format, under the same global SFN brand. In total, 5 individual Networks reside under the same SFN umbrella.
The SFN Networking solution is really unique; it provides independent Freight Forwarders with a specialised platform to choose how to showcase their company. Kelly has a proven 13 year track record of generating sustainable new business revenue for her Members – she also owns WorldFreightNetwork.com (WFN).
