The French Government delays once more the entry into force of the eco-tax which was originally scheduled for last July. It had to be put into effect in January 2014 after repeated postponements for not guaranteeing the correct operation of the system.
Three months ago, Wtransnet, the leading Freight and Truck Exchange in Southern Europe, re-launched its fully renovated Associates Searcher. Under the name of WFinder 2.0, it presents new features and search criteria that enable you to find, meet and contact the best companies of the sector.
The most specialized and safest searcher in the transport sector
The Business Assistant is the person that will accompany the new customer from the beginning and during his first months in Wtransnet to help him so that he makes the most of the application and expands his business options.
The Italian shipping company Grimaldi Lines and Wtransnet, an online Freight and Truck Exchange, have signed a collaboration agreement to promote, through their corporate websites and other communication channels, the iniciatives both will carry out for the transport and logistics industry.
This collaboration has the aim of boosting the international transport through the information exchange, the access to new contacts and the creation of collaborations between companies of the industry.
In the words of Guido Grimaldi, Corporate Truck & Trailer Commercial Manager of Grimaldi Group, “Wtransnet is a helpful tool for those transport companies interested in finding new market opportunities in different regions of Europe and we are pleased to start a co-marketing project with all their team”.
During the first semester of 2013 there has been an increase of the 2.59%, compared to the 2011 average, placing the percentage of partial loads (Less than truckload LTL), with respect to full loads (Full Truckload FTL) in a 40,34% in Europe. This means that out of 10 loads offered in the Wtransnet exchange, 4 are partial loads and 6 full loads.
The opinion of the industry is that with the crisis customers no longer buy full trailers for the loads but inferior loads that fail to complete a truck. These intermediate freights, greater than one or two pallets, or sometimes half truck are the ones you cannot send with parcel carriers, but they are not enough for filling a full truck, neither.
The media in Italy indicate that, after 6 years into the crisis, the difficulties being experienced by Italian companies are not overcome, yet. On the contrary, many of these companies managed to survive the economic crisis but now have become unable to meet payments to their suppliers.
It is not surprising that, according to Coface, worldwide leader in credit insurance, fraud in business grow daily in countries like Italy and Spain. In the case of Italy, the trend that has been increasing in recent years is that such fraud is committed by identity theft to an existing company.
In Wtransnet exists an Audit Committee for monitoring all the companies using the site and also analysing their history and watching over the established conditions inside the marketplace.
This committee have the power for penalising, blocking or even banning those companies not following the normative.
In this sense, the information of the associates about other companies is essential. For that, Wtransnet gives at your disposal this communication channel – The Report Abuse- for informing in a confidential way about any irregular action.
CDS Group meets a collective of more than 60 Italian and international companies with a specific mission “Create value added to each associate optimizing the service and the companies’ costs”
The collaboration with Wtransnet consists in the creation of a private Exchange for the companies of CDS Group and with access to the Public Exchange of Wtransnet.
This will allow the companies from CDS Group, when they need to search a freight for completing a truck or find a truck for one client, prioritize companies of the group maintaining a business relationship and only go to the market after having tried all the options inside the group.
Whithout a doubt, this way of working will give an increase in the companies business taking the advantages of the synergies created inside the collective.
