In an instant, an agent can have hundreds of good partners, through network membership, who are ready to cooperate within the general cargo or project cargo industry.
Global Reach and Regional Expertise
Dynamic and Experienced Headquarter
The average age of the INO staff is thirty, and they all have university degrees, such as: International Logistics and Transportation, Maritime Administration, Tourism Hotel Management, English Literature, German Translation and Interpreting The entire INO staff is subject to an internal training program to provide the best service to member companies. The work experience and career of the team are parallel to their academic and educational backgrounds, which allows them to understand the depths of their field and needs of their clients.
Complimentary Membership in First Year
There are three primary purposes of providing free membership in our networks. The first purpose is to see new members’ performance during the year. The second is to provide an opportunity for new arrivals to see our services and performance. The third is to encourage new members to attend the first available Annual General Meeting (AGM) to help them activate the potential in the group. INO Networks Group has had a rock-solid reputation in the industry since 2009, and our members are actively cooperating based on mutual benefits and have increasing shipment volume. We are looking for like-minded agents that are aggressive in marketing and ready to contribute to the success of our members.

High Calibre Members
Quality is more important than quantity! This is one of our key success factors. INO Networks Group has strict membership requirements in each of its networks to keep specific quality standards for ongoing productivity, development and increasing shipment volume.
We do not sacrifice quality for the sake of adding more members. Our networks ensure a trusted global network with local market knowledge and network standards that guarantee effective handson management and help build lasting relationships.
We regularly scan, analyze and replace any company that fails to meet the quality standards of INO Networks Group, based on the feedbacks coming from our members.
Save Time and Money in One Shot
A network is a dedicated platform, which provides speedy sales and marketing opportunity to the members. Thus, if an agent is located in Australia and wants to meet with other agents from Europe and Africa, then he or she cannot go to France for one week and then Egypt the next week.
INO Networks Group arranges an INO Summit every year, which is a joint conference of three independent networks and an event where members can meet members of their own network, including members of other INO Networks in a systematic way.
All Members are invited to attend the INO Summit to exchange leads and develop business. The event is a great opportunity to meet overseas agents that you would, otherwise, rarely get the opportunity to meet. Members also have access to our one-to-one online program, which allows delegates to set up 20 minutes of private business meetings prior to their arrival.
Well Organised Networking Events
A face-to-face meeting plays a significant part in communication and business. It is not just how you said something, but your facial expressions and body posture are also important. Agents mostly do not prefer to give their client’s valuable cargo to one another without some form of meeting or communication.
The INO Summit is a three-day joint conference, which brings the members of three well-known associations together in one place. The summit is held by the participation of the members from OPCA, 3F and FM. These three associations are independent and separate from one another and have different members. Each association serves different expectations, needs and strategies of freight forwarders and logistics companies. They come together for this glorious summit to create perfect synergy, potential and networking opportunities.
The three-day event is a great opportunity for all agents to meet with fellow members and potential partners by attending the social networking events. Attendees are encouraged to take full networking advantages of this great gathering during optional activities (e.g., a city tour, football tournament, paintball tournament, karting race, welcome cocktail and gala dinner), while focusing only on their own network partners during one-to-one meetings. The INO Summit is a unique joint conference with its distinguished feature of keeping each association’s specialty, while giving more networking opportunities to attendees during social events.
Definitely, the INO Summit will be a major success that should not be missed to help you build new business relationships, strengthen existing ties and make new acquaintances with the joint power of INO Networks Group. read more about INO Summit 2019...
Payment Protection Program
INO Networks Group has a payment protection program called, ‘INO Global Protection’, and it is created to cover unpaid invoices between member agents. It is a unique and exclusive program for the members to protect themselves against possible debtors or delinquent companies in the network. It is a self-funded program and managed by INO Networks Group. There is no insurance or third-party behind the program, and it gives full control to the management in the budget.
Case and Claim Management
INO Networks Group aims to provide a safe environment to all members with all aspects. In all cases, our members are assisted by the network management, with a professional approach. The INO team has years of experience in dealing with members’ disputes. Each case is handled in an efficient and timely manner.
INO Networks Group has a case and claim management service to solve disputes and problems between members. The case and claim management procedure is designed in three categories, which are detailed in a separate guideline. Please note, however, that all disputes arising between members are handled as explained in the guideline. All member agents must follow these instructions and steps meticulously in case of any dispute. The case and claim management is a free service, and any decision given by the network management is binding for all parties.
Build Your Brand
Each network of INO Networks Group has terms and conditions that regulates both the cooperation between members and the relations with the network itself. These rules bring discipline together with stability into cooperation between members. All of our members agree to follow the terms and conditions automatically, due to their membership, and it helps us to have sustainable success.
Members who break the rules are dismissed and replaced by the next best-qualified candidate on our waiting list. The terms and conditions are valid agreements between all members, and they establish the liability and responsibility of each party in the network. These rules are available for our members in the members-only area on our website.
Agent networks are where you can display your business reputation and credibility. Being part of a network is the strongest endorsement you need to stand out from other freight forwarders. Membership shows your accreditation and integration to the industry, and it differentiates your company from any other average freight forwarding or logistics company.
