A new network strategy has been announced by Tandem Global Logistics Network. Their 14 shareholding members and 68 cooperative partners will focus on quality, growth, value, and innovation, until the end of 2020. This allows Tandem’s Executive Board to measure the successes of this Quality Phase according to these four core tenets.

 

Founded in 2007, Tandem starts into its second decade with a new strategy. “In the first years of our cooperation, we aimed at expanding our global reach by finding partners in the most important markets around the world,” explains Frits Schouffoer, Managing Director at Tandem Global Logistics Network. “Now, the development of new quality and IT standards as well as an increase in shipments are becoming more crucial.” Quality control is vital in ensuring reliable services to customers in times of increasingly strict trade regulations and volatile market conditions.

 

Strengthening of Executive Board

 

To ensure this, Tandem strengthens its Executive Board to consequently implement resolutions. The cooperative’s Executive Board consists of three permanent members from the USA, Japan, and Germany plus one annually rotating shareholder – currently the partner from Canada. A more top down approach to decision-making is adopted to make sure every partner is committed to the network.
