African Logistics Club launched.
China Logistics Club has launched African Logistics Club (ALC) to help serve their African members better and on the request of some of our Chinese members who has asked us to get more African members to our conferences in China. Now that the business between China and Africa is much larger than the business between China and India, many Chinese members are developing new trade routes to Africa where profit margins tend to be a lot higher than to the more tradionally trade routes to Europe and the USA.
Today we reached 360 members with Al Reyami Shipping and Logistics LLC from Dubai as the latest member. Our goal is to reach 500 members by the end of 2008 to enable us to hold even more networking conferences around China.
