Conqueror Freight Network said it has reached a milestone in its global coverage with the addition of its 200th city in its 100th country.

“This is a significant moment for the network. With only 1/10 applications’ passing our external audit, the process of finding the best companies is not as easy it may sound,” explained the company’s founder and managing director Antonio Torres, “However it is crucial to our long-term stability and success.” 

The network’s third annual meeting is being held in Kuala Lumpur this May, and the company said expectations are high. “With this increase in members, we are expecting our highest ever turnout for a Conqueror meeting. All our members understand the importance of meeting face to face and are committed to attending where possible, this is quite a network owner’s dream,” Torres emphasized.

Currently the network has coverage in 209 cities in 102 countries and employs around 16,500 people. Conqueror is a member of ELITE, the industry's only recognized grouping of quality independent freight forwarder networks, representing over 3,550 companies with annual revenues in excess of $60 billion.
