THE INTENTION OF THE FUND US TO LET IT GROW AND LET THE PAY-OUT LIMITS GROW ACCORDINGLY
Q&A WHO HAS CURRENTLY SIGNED UP TO THE FUND On our website you will find 8 participating Global Networks who are each promoting The Global Fund to their members as part of the membership criteria – SPECIALIST FREIGHT NETWORK WORLD FREIGHT NETWORK GFP – GLOBAL FORWARDING PARTNERS TMI WWPC GLOBAL LOGISTICS CLUB CHINA LOGISTICS CLUB TWIG WHEN DOES THE FUND START As many networks hold their AGM in the later part of the year, we have decided to commence the fund on 1 st January 2015 HOW DOES THE FUND WORK IN TERMS OF A CLAIM ? Claims to the fund must be filled within 150 days of the date of the unpaid invoices and during the cover period. No claims will be accepted for invoices less than 90 days old.
HOW MANY MEMBERS DO YOU EXPECT TO JOIN ? Of course, every member,every office from every network would be wonderful but We encourage the GFP Board to promote this as we see this as an administration free payment protection service which benefits not just the GFP but agents that the GFP Partners also work with who are members of other organisations. We have already 5 of the GFP Partners signed up. We would prefer after AGM Presentation, we sign up at least 25% of the GFP. Remember the fund will only pay out if both parties are signed up to the GLF. HOW DO WE SIGN UP ? It’s simple, via a simple application form via the website or you canwww.fdrs-ltd.com appoint your Secretary to act on behalf of the GFP COST ? USD 500 per member, per office, per year HOW DO WE KNOW WHO IS A MEMBER? On the GFP WEBSITE the Payment Protection Members will be shown with a logo of the GLF ( this provided by the GLF ) this gives any partner the easy decision to work with the other knowing they have payment protection
WHO REPORTS THE AMOUNT IN THE FUND ? The Global Logistics Fund reports the fund values, the claims and the non payers Via the website which is updated weekly. The claims will also show the number of Agents involved and the amount of each claim. HOW DO WE START A CLAIM ? Via the website their is a Members Log In and the claim form can be downloaded And past for judgement. On approval both parties enter into a claim. That claim will show on the website and already will highlight a NON PAYING AGENT The idea of the Fund is also to stop and blacklist ROGUE FORWARDERS WILL THE COST OF THE FUND INCREASE ? No, for now we will keep the fund at the fees agreed. We may decide at a later stage To offer a larger pay out option like – max pay – out amount per claimant p.a USD 20,000 ( now set at USD 10,000 ) In that case we could look to increase the Fees for those who prefer a higher cover level WHO MANAGES THE FUND ? The fund is managed entirely by the FDRS – Forwarders Dept Recovery Service.
