March 9 - A new network, CLC Projects, has been established to cater for smaller and medium sized project freight forwarders.

The three founders all have experience in liner shipping, ship owning, airfreight, logistics management, and project forwarding.

The network will recruit members which are, 'proud but not arrogant, humble but not crawling', according to Bo Drewsen, chairman.

The network has offices in Hong Kong covering Asia/Australia and in Malta covering Africa/Americas and Europe. "The idea is to provide a platform where SME project freight forwarders can meet, get to know each other and link up in order to compete with the global players to offer the customers a one stop shop," said Drewsen.

The network has 30 members already and will have its first conference in Chongqing, China this month (March).
