Everywhere logistics companies turn there are forwarder networks. But are they right for everyone?

You're here in Chicago, and maybe you have a few more offices around the United States. Heck, maybe you've got offices elsewhere in world. But what about where you don't? How do you find the right company to represent the interests if your customer half a country or half a world away? In many cases, the easiest solution is, "Well, I'll join a forwarder network and my problems are solved."

But not all networks are created equal. Some have voluntary or mandatory components that aren't for everyone. Some are volunteer managed, others have paid staff. Which one makes the most sense for your company? Hear from someone who has experience with several networks and can offer insights on the pros and cons of network membership.
