September 1 - The Global Project Logistics Network (GPLN), the large network of independent international project logistics specialists and charterers, has now turned five years old.

Gary Dale Cearley, GPLN executive director, claims: "We have grown from only ten members in our first year to being the largest projects logistics specialist network in the world. We should be around 200 member offices near the end of this year."


GPLN has also been keeping it global when it comes to its annual meetings: "We have had meetings in the past in Dublin, Bangkok, Dubai, Prague, Kuala Lumpur, Tunis and next we will be in Rio de Janeiro," says Luzius Haffter, GPLN's commercial director.
