Staying on track in 2015: Make these your goals

I know that it is the second part of January already and that the year is well underway. But I think that it is still early on enough that we should set some goals to keep an eye on throughout and for year to come. So why don’t you take these into consideration for this year?:

  • Make sure to have elevator speeches prepared for the service segments you want to promote.
  • Be at the networking events, especially the Annual General Meeting. Your network partners depend on you and your company will grow from it.
  • Make sure to plan prior to going to networking events.
  • Make sure to follow up after networking events so that new contacts don’t go cold
  • Make sure to do everything that you say you will do at a networking event. Don’t come off as flaky.
  • Keep good records of who you meet, how you met and how you might help one another.
  • Share your networking intelligence with your team.
  • Involve your entire company in the networking process and activities.

I recommend that you take down that list and put it somewhere where you can see it in your office on a regular basis. Let it be a reminder of the path you will take this year. Incorporate these points into your goals. Let networking be one of the biggest tools in your arsenal to make your company strong and profitable. If you do follow these, I promise you that you will be very glad that you did.

2020 Logistics




South Africa

Logistics is a word that you would see most often on the side of trucks. it might sound like a simple-enough business of moving things around, but it is growing to be more complex than this. Good logistics can make all the difference to a company’s ability to serve its clients. In an ever changing world of commerce, where the process of doing business with end users keeps evolving, the importance of logistics becomes more prevalent. At 2020 Logistics we know that the word has an even bigger meaning: it is all about the management of the flow of materials through an organisation, from raw materials to finished goods – ensuring the successful delivery of the right product to the right place at the right time. The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination to always apply the best of ourselves to any situation. Our aim is to follow a forward-thinking, proactive approach to all shipments thereby ensuring that all global freight forwarding and procurement challenges are effectively managed. At 2020 Logistics we have a clear vision in mind – to ensure we do everything we can, to move your business forward.
