Why an exclusive logistics network?

At the Apollo Cargo Alliance, we want to ensure that our international logistics agents can always rely on the right partners with local expertise in the right location. That is why we designed our exclusive logistics network in such a way that we only accept a limited amount of 2 international logistics agents per country or region, one for sea and one for air. For major economies, we might ocasionally make the exception to allow a third international logistics agent. In the case of small countries or regions, the number of international logistics agents per region will be restricted to one.

How do we manage our exclusive logistics network?

The Apollo Cargo Alliance is an exclusive logistics network reserved for the very best international logistics agents in the industry. To achieve regional exclusivity, we aim ontrolling the number of members per region. Hence, we implemented a multiple membership protection, in order to prevent network saturation and heavy internal competition. This exclusivity makes Apollo really unique compared to other international logistics networks.
