The Cargo Pool of Switzerland was established in 2002 as a response of small and medium sized freight forwarders to the multinationals. The key aspect to CPS is its neutrality. Each member has his own airwaybill stock. The ability to negotiate with airlines from a strong position in terms of volumes has paid off for all CPS members. CPS negotiates the rates and achieves far better deals than would be possible for us as individual companies. Forwarders with strength in different markets help the group 'ride on each others backs'. For instance one forwarder may be strong in exports to Latin America one to Africa and one to North America. So when CPS comes to negotiate rates we are strong across the globe and we can benefit from much lower rates to any market.

Target of the cooperation is to offer a better service for the exporters and to secure on long term basis the freight capacitiy for international air and ocean freight transports.
