Richard James Overton

CEO / Founder
X2 Group

X2 Logistics Networks was born 10 years ago to create new standards within the logistics industry and to focus on the freight forwarding segment of the supply chain. Our role is to provide professional support and to assist agents all over the world to improve their financial and operational performance.

The need to be a part of an organization that can assist with the challenges forwarders are facing today is now becoming more and more relevant. Many forwarders are seeing the benefit of joining logistics networks that can help with global growth and assisting them to service more customers in more markets worldwide.

In a market dominated by the multinationals, a professional logistics network is designed to link together like-minded independent forwarders from all over the world in a freight forwarder network that will give them the tools necessary to compete on a global scale. Winning more business, servicing more clients and working with more reliable agents worldwide. All of this can be achieved by working within a global network of fellow forwarders that can be trusted in all markets worldwide.

A professional logistics network is essentially an alliance of hand-picked freight forwarders who are required to meet certain standards and are encouraged to work together to grow their businesses and serve their clients globally. Some of the benefits and services that a freight forwarder should receive by joining a professional association are highlighted below.

A good network should have an impressive global presence where members are able to work cooperatively to serve clients globally, wherever in the world they need to send a shipment. Consider that the aggregated figures of networks members may show superior resources in terms of size and reach than some of the largest multinationals. Now combine these advantages with local capability, flexibility, and the ability to serve shippers faster and to reach almost any market worldwide.

There is simply no better generator of new business than the power of working within a group as one cooperating entity. It makes sense that as a member of a professional global network you are in a strong position to secure new business by exchanging shipments with other members in different locations.

Essentially a professionally managed logistics network should tick the boxes of increasing profitability, competitiveness and long term growth for freight forwarders. But of course no different from any successful business everything comes down to the financial investment in the organization. And the knowledge, experience and professionalism of the network team members and management.

To ensure that X2 will be a network for the future and will continue to add value to its members by striving to have a competitive edge in the international logistics networking arena. Richard's vision is to bring an innovative and professional approach to the world of Logistics Networking and he believes in identifying customers' value propositions and delivering on them without exception.
