Mitchell Estrada named Regional Vice President, Americas; responsible for member recruitment, education and training and networking through the hemisphere.
November 13, 2014 - Schaumburg, IL and Antwerp - Deurne, Belgium - The Chit Chat Group, LLC and Atlas Logistic Network have signed an agreement whereby Chit Chat will be the exclusive representative of Atlas Logistic Network in the Americas.
Atlas Logistic Network is the third largest global forwarding network, boasting over two hundred member offices in more than one hundred seventy five countries. Featuring a unique exclusive regional representation policy, Atlas differs from other networks in pursuing air freight and sea freight members in each of their markets, recognizing the differences in modalities and that there are businesses who excel in one or the other.
Luc Huysmans, Founding Father of Atlas Logistic Network, commented, "When I founded the group in 1998, my goal was to bring together not just forwarders in a network, but like-minded people who could become friends and generate traffic for each other not just with import or export, but with equal attention to both. Mitchell's experience and knowledge, his status as a citizen of both the United States and Venezuela and his young and vibrant network of hungry companies are the perfect compliment as we focus our expansion in North, Central and South America."
Mitchell Estrada, the founder of The Chit Chat Group and one of the co-founders of the Young Freight Forwarders Association, echoes his excitement. "Atlas Logistics Network has such tremendous coverage in the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian Subcontinent the Middle East, Africa and Europe. Their members have cast their eyes towards the Americas as the next great area of expansion for the network. It will be exciting to share this opportunity with my network and recruit members to join this mature, established and close-knit group."
Atlas Logistic Network will also benefit from the services that The Chit Chat Group provides, including education and training on general and specific logistics topics including air and sea freight, Customs brokerage and Incoterms. Chit Chat's unique networking platform will also allow Atlas members to connect with each other, creating opportunities for themselves and other logistics professionals.
