PCN celebrates 3rd birthday

August 9 - The Project Cargo Network (PCN) is celebrating its third anniversary. Today, PCN has an international presence that includes 197 members spanning more than 700 worldwide offices in 93 countries.

The PCN head office is now preparing for what will be its largest member gathering to date - the PCN Annual Summit, November 17-19, 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand.
 
Rachel Humphrey, founder and chairwoman of PCN, observed that starting a network during the global financial crisis was a calculated risk: "Having seen recessions in the past we positioned ourselves to take on the many challenges associated with managing a network through difficult times.
 
"In working with heavy lift and project cargo specialists we have found that a company's ability to adjust to the changing economic climate significantly affects how well it will emerge from challenging times. We were prepared and ready to assist our members to help build and develop their specialist services."
 
Humprey added that over the last 12 months PCN accepted 71 members; more than 80 applicants were rejected due to a lack of experience, too many of their own overseas offices, or due to a country being fully-represented.
