Regional exclusivity at Atlas Global Cargo Network

Be the exclusive network partner for your area

One of the cornerstones of the Atlas international global cargo network is regional exclusivity. All members of the network, be they a sea or an air member, are granted a regional exclusivity protection for their city or (air)port. Exclusivity is granted per region or state (not per country). This means that in your region, you will not have to compete with other Atlas members. It also means that you will easily find the best partner in a certain area other than your own.

Exceptions

The maximum for regional exclusivity protection within the network will never exceed 3 members, of which 1 member will need to be either a sea or an air member.

Cities

  • Cities that have over 5 million residents can have a total of 3 members
  • Cities that have over 10 million residents can have a total of 4 members

Ability to cover the market

Each member must have sufficient commercial strength to cover the region appointed to them, otherwise an additional member could be appointed.

Request by 3 members

3 members can ask for an additional member because of current commitments of their Atlas counterparts. All members are invited to share this information with the Atlas global cargo network management.

Code of ethics

Whenever a member has complaints about untimely payment or untimely replies from another member, an additional member might be nominated for the region in question.

Annual meetings

Whenever a member fails to attend 2 consecutive annual Atlas Conferences, an additional member might be nominated for this member’s region.

Membership combinations

Whenever a member is both a sea and an air member in the same city or region, an additional member might be nominated for this member’s region.
