Eurteam’s vision and strategy as it marks 10 years of multilateral expertise
A strategic alliance of European transport and logistics specialists providing services to the chemical sector has set out its vision for the future as it celebrates a decade of delivering multilateral expertise.
Ian Jones, newly appointed President of Eurteam, said the alliance would be looking to strengthen its market proposition of delivering local expertise from owner-led, independent supply chain companies with a combined global reach.
To mark the anniversary, the five partner members gathered at the Anglo-German Club in Hamburg where Eurteam was officially launched in 2006.
Eurteam members include Leschaco operating in Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands; the Del Corona Scardigli Group in Italy, the Asta Logistik Grupo in Spain and Warrant Group in the UK. QualitAir&Sea in France joined Eurteam earlier this year.
Ian Jones, who is the Managing Director of Warrant Group and will hold the position of President of Eurteam for the next two years, explained.
’When Eurteam was formed 10 years ago, it was a direct response to market conditions. We knew that in order to compete in the chemical sector we needed greater reach and a stronger, global presence.
’Eurteam was created to provide a single solution to customers and all members have enjoyed considerable successes from working together to share expertise and capabilities.
’Moving forward and looking to the next 10 years, we need to focus on our strengths as a strategic, global alliance of independent, owner-led companies with a unique understanding of local conditions. Connected by technology and with a real commitment to delivering innovation, value and efficiencies, Eurteam will continue to offer strong and competitive logistics solutions for the chemical sector.’

Joël Glusman, à la tête de la contestation pour mieux défendre ses clients
Aug 2013 |
Suite à la décision prise par plusieurs compagnies aériennes de calculer les surcharges de sûreté et de carburant non plus sur le poids brut, mais sur le poids taxable, Joël Glusman a pris la tête d’une contestation qui va au-delà de nos frontières. Dans ’Voice of the Independent’, il déclare ainsi : ’cela ressemble fort à une approche concertée afin d’augmenter les prix sous couvert des surcharges. Et on ne peut que regretter l’annonce de ces décisions au beau milieu du mois d’août, alors qu’une grande partie des décideurs de l’hémisphère nord sont en congés. Avant le 11 septembre 2001, nous n’avions qu’une seule ligne de facturation. Aujourd’hui, nous comptons jusqu’à huit différentes taxes et surcharges. Le coût administratif, le temps passé à traiter les surcharges sans opérer la moindre marge montre bien que nous travaillons gratuitement pour les compagnies aériennes. Sur certaines destinations, les surcharges représentent jusqu’à trois fois le prix du transport.’ A la suite de Joël Glusman, plusieurs autres acteurs du freight forwarding ont exprimé leur opinion.Visit the site

Last but not least, Qualitair&Sea chartered a freighter Boeing B737 on behalf of an important automotive company.
The handcarry packages were loaded on 10th November. As usual, reactiveness of Qualitair&Sea staff was decisive : the “international emergency” department was able to launch the operation less than 30 minutes after having received the proposal.
The first one consists of 16 parcels weighting 96 kg, from Turkey to Madrid, where they arrived at 3pm on Saturday. The second one was destined for Paris. In both cases, the goods arrived less than 24 hours after their collection.

A PARTNERSHIP WITH CUSTOMS FOR THE AMERICAN MARKET
Oct. 2012 |
As the only French freight forwarder attending Air Cargo Forum October 2-4, 2012, in Atlanta, Qualitair&Sea is showing its willingness to strengthen its links with the American market. Air Cargo Forum is organized by TIACA, The International Air Cargo Association, and is the main symposium dedicated to air freight, with attendance of all air supply chain users: airlines, general handling agents, freight forwarders, airport management, security, civil aviation and customs administrations, IT providers, and many shippers and exporters from Atlanta and its business area.
In Atlanta, Qualitair&Sea made the choice of a strategic partnership and will attend and exhibit along with Aéroports de Paris, French Customs Administration and TLF Overseas, the French freight forwarders association. In so doing, Qualitair&Sea is confirming its image as a high-level customs specialist and is showing its strong partnership with French Customs to its local or global airlines partners, to GHA, American freight forwarders and American exporters and importers. This partnership is the result of a long time process: in 2008, Qualitair&Sea was chosen by French Customs to experiment and drive the Authorized Economic Operator certification in France. A few months later, the company was one of the first certified freight forwarders in Europe.
While attending Air Cargo Forum in Atlanta, Qualitair&Sea is willing to highlight the benefits of the agreement signed recently by the United States and the European Union for a mutual recognition of AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) and C-TPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism). This mutual recognition will allow for a secured and optimized supply chain between Europe and the United States. Moreover, US Customs admits by this recognition the quality of operational, customs and security measures implemented by Qualitair&Sea in France, for the benefit of its customers.
* * *
For Joël Glusman, Qualitair&Sea President and CEO: ’this mutual recognition between C-TPAT and AEO and our presence at Atlanta Air Cargo Forum, the worldwide and well-known air cargo symposium, Qualitair&Sea shows its abilty to adapt itself to international logistics evolutions, to strengthen its efficient partnership with French Customs and its willingness to develop its relationship with the American market.’

CrystalGroup in the business news !
July 2012 |
In this article, Joël GLUSMAN considers that French SME are less prepared for exportation than their German neighbours. ’French SME don’t have exportation in their DNA’, Joël GLUSMAN says, as president of CrystalGroup, which includes Qualitair&Sea and Setcargo, two well-known French freight forwarders. ’Roughly speaking, we could say that French SME are so confident in the quality of their products that they just wait for the customer, in their own premises.’
And then? According to Joël GLUSMAN, a lot of French companies are not eager to take the responsability of the transport of the goods, even if they are regularly registered by French customs. It is therefore up to their own customers to take this responsability.
But in many French seaports, there are more and more containers. Indeed, a French exporter has the right and the possibility to go directly to the airlines or to the shipping companies, but the administrative and regulation burden is so heavy, there are so many people to deal with, that they prefer working with freight forwarders. Moreover, SME are not able to obtain good rates : ’fewer than 1000 boxes per year, shipping companies are not interested in SME’s business. And SME are very few to have such high volumes.’ As a consequence, SME always go to the freight forwarders, like QUALITAIR&SEA and SETCARGO. ’90% of French SME are working with freight forwarders’, says Hervé Cornède, commercial vice-president of GPMH, Grand Port Maritime du Havre.
SETCARGO présente ses nouveaux outils à ses clients
July 2012 |
C’est dans le cadre accueillant de l’hôtel de la Batelière et devant un auditoire de plus de cent personnes, parmi lesquels on retrouvait les principaux importateurs de Martinique mais aussi les représentants de l’administration des douanes et les grands transporteurs tels que Corsair, Air France, Maersk, Marfret, Geest et CMA-CGM, que Joël Glusman, président de SETCARGO et de CrystalGroup, a dévoilé les projets de son entreprise en matière de traitement de l’information. Avec une accroche qui n’a pas laissé les importateurs indifférents : « parce que la maîtrise de l’information, autant que la qualité du transport, est la clé de votre réussite ». Assisté de Barbara Accajou, directrice de l’agence SETCARGO de Fort-de-France, Joël Glusman a ensuite déployé le nouveau produit de Setcargo : un outil de Tracking/tracing assorti d’une formule d’alertes email automatisées, un espace au sein duquel les clients pourront retrouver les textes législatifs et règlementaires, un module de téléchargement destiné à aller plus loin en matière de dématérialisation, un espace consacré à la satisfaction du client, et, enfin, un espace statistique où le client pourra retrouver, de manière simple et conviviale, ses principales données d’activité et indicateurs de performance. Setcargo a surtout dévoilé ce que les importateurs martiniquais attendaient depuis des années : un outil leur permettant le calcul du coût de revient non pas à l’expédition, mais à l’article, selon un procédé totalement validé par la Direction des Douanes. « Il s’agit de répondre toujours au mieux des attentes de nos clients, qui peuvent se résumer ainsi : facilitation, anticipation, et information. Vous donner plus d’information, facile d’accès, afin de leur permettre de dégager de véritables gains de productivité. »
