20 Years of Bridging the Gap in Global Freight Forwarding

In 2022, RW Solutions is proud to be celebrating 20 years of providing secure and reliable partnership networking for freight forwarders and logistics companies worldwide. Since 2002, RW Solutions Ltd. has grown to over 1000 members in 100 countries, providing niche, global networking solutions that ensure quality, trust-based partnerships. It has been a thrilling and promising journey for the last two decades, and we are grateful to all our members, partners, and collaborators for their invaluable contributions to this inspiring global freight forwarding community.

Since launching our first network, Combined Logistics Networks, in our first year, we have grown to eight thriving partnerships. Our global network of alliances offers our members a chance to connect with some of the leading freight professionals in all parts of the globe.

The Conference that started it all

With the growing need for reliable partnership networks in the freight industry and our growing membership, we launched The Freight Summit (TFS), where independent freight forwarders could network and connect at some of the most scenic and vibrant venues in cities across the globe, such as Bangkok, Bali, and Cotai.

At TFS, freight forwarders can connect with various industry networks and establish strong relationships with other international forwarders. TFS has built its reputation in the industry as a leading open networking event and has been attended by more than 3,000 forwarders since 2008.

Nils, our co-founder, discusses the impact of this year’s Freight Summit in Bangkok.


  • In the field of sea freight, Neptune becomes the second RW network formed and the largest NVOCC and LCL cargo alliance in the world.

  • Throughout the year, Combined Logistics Network (CLN) exhibits at Multimodal in Birmingham, Triangle Events in Miami, and Transport Logistics in Shanghai.


  • Two new RW networks, Global Aircargo Alliance (GAA) and Life Logistics launched. GAA is an exclusive network for air freight forwarders and Life Logistics connects the world’s leading pharma goods specialists on one platform.

  • The CLN exhibits at Transport Logistics in Munich, BREAKBULK Expo in Bremen, and Multimodal in Birmingham.


  • RW launches a new global network for forwarders specializing in perishables and food logistics called Cold Chain Connect. 

  • A number of our networks participated in events around the world: CLN at the BREAKBULK Expo in Bremen, Neptune at the Transport Logistics Expo in Shanghai, and Global Aircargo Alliance (GAA) at the airfreight-specific CNS and IATA Conference & Expo in Phoenix.


Even though market changes occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic, it did not stop us from creating safe (and socially distanced) connections and supporting independent freight forwarders. In the last two years, we launched a number of online initiatives and platforms, such as our popular virtual panel discussions, to engage and educate our members. As part of these online events, we have also launched a redesigned website and updated brand, as well as a growing monthly LinkedIn newsletter, called the Freight Forwarder, where the latest news from industry influencers can be found.


Offering limitless possibilities within a variety of transportation modalities, RW Solutions is proud of all we have accomplished together, and to have served our community over the past 20 years. As we prepare to launch our newest networks, EMERGE and LATAM Forwarders Club in 2023, we are excited for what the coming years hold for us and for our members. Through inspiring networking events in fascinating venues around the world and online, RW Solutions is committed to bringing freight professionals together for many more years to come.

Here’s to another 20 years of bringing the world closer together!
