Relaunch of the Worldwide Office Furniture Logistics Network on LinkedIn
We started the WOFLN group a while back in order to bring together fellow professionals involved in the international logistics of office furniture and commercial interiors products and together we have shipped and installed product at multiple locations around the globe.
Whether the project was large or small, the key to success has been experience, enthusiasm and communication.
We are fielding enquiries from US dealers and manufacturers on a daily basis for turnkey projects in all parts of the world, particularly in to locations where the US military has a presence.
I would welcome adding to our family of qualified professionals with strong references in inbound logistics handling, customs clearance, installation and post project support services located in particularly the following areas : Africa, Middle East, Europe, Central and South America
If you feel that your company can assist, please email Stewart Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org

World football authorities will not make a decision on whether to switch the Qatar 2022 World Cup to the cooler winter months until early in 2015, according to the head of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).
Global organising body FIFA had previously said that a resolution to move the tournament from summer, where temperatures in the Gulf state can reach up to 50 degrees Celsius, would be made by the end of this year.
“There are a lot of partners that we need to sit and talk with and find the best solution and I am sure this decision will not be taken before the first quarter of 2015,” Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa, president of the AFC, told Britain’s the Press Association.
“The decision is to look at the possibilities of the timing, as we speak now it is still June/July but the aim of this task force is to look at the other options and the concerns that some will have,” Sheikh Salman added.
