Months after our Annual General Meeting, we found an occasion for our growing network to meet and greet each other. Under the circumstances, a virtual meeting turned out to be the best possible option to bring our members and partners together, and what could be a better time than spring!
In the past few months, two of New Silk Road Network’s (NSRN) members, Ocean Bright Logistics from China and Polish Forwarding Company (PFC), from Poland, have been conducting regular block trains between China and Europe. Over the months, this successful joint venture has caused buzz through NSRN’s community.
Huettemann Group, a founding member of the New Silk Road Network, has expanded their activities in the Netherlands. Their Dutch subsidiary Rabelink Logistics has recently acquired Gesink Transport. The transfer from the previous owner has been undertaken, as Gesink Transport’s fleet of vehicles and employees are retained. The previous owner will serve on the board for three years to ensure a smooth transition period for customers and employees.
The early months of 2021 have bought many laurels to New Silk Road Network’s member Anil Mantra Logistix Pvt. Ltd. Early this year, their Managing Director Sunila Yadav had received the prestigious ‘Business Leader of the Year’ Award. In the past two weeks, Anil Mantra received two more awards from AsiaOne Magazine, a premier media house covering news and analysis from various industries, including the business world.

Here are some excerpts from his blog…
