JOINT VENTURE

World Options International Ltd. is een 50/50 Joint Venture tussen World Options Holding Ltd. en IXTrans Global Pte Ltd, bestuurd door mensen met een jarenlange ervaring in Logistiek, Technologie, Sales, Finance, Marketing en Franchising. De directeuren richtten de bedrijven op vanuit een gemeenschappelijke logistieke achtergrond en ervaring die goed op elkaar afgestemd bleken. Dit maakte dat de joint business een sterke kracht werd in het resellen van de "best in class service" van de koeriers aan kleine en middelgrote bedrijven.

World Options Holding is de oudere Joint Venture partner die in 2003 werd opgericht door Stewart Butler, één van de oorspronkelijke oprichters van het kantoor in Engeland.

James Edwards sloot zich in 2013 bij World Options aan als franchise en hij werd snel betrokken in het bestuur van het bedrijf in Groot-Brittannië en leeft nu in de Verenigde Staten waar World Options Inc in Atlanta gevestigd is.

IXTrans werd in Singapore opgericht door Malcolm Rees in 2009, wat later uitgebreid werd en IXTrans Global werd.

In 2014 en 2015 vormden Dirk Kruisinga en Ulrik Topp Simple2Ship in België en Nederland.

Beide bedrijven, World Options Holding Ltd. en IXTrans Global Pte Ltd. hadden dezelfde visie en doelstelling, waardoor zij als vanzelf Joint Venture partners werden. De Joint Venture World Options International Ltd. werd opgericht in april 2017 met een erg eenvoudig concept: om een snel, betrouwbaar, gebruiksvriendelijk online verzendplatform aan voordelige tarieven aan internationale B2B-klanten te kunnen aanbieden.

De bedrijven in België en Nederland werden dan toegevoegd aan de Joint Venture.

In 2017 World Options Australië kantoor werd opgericht door Malcom Rees. Zij bieden hetzelfde competitieve online verzendmodel aan voor Australische kleine en middelgrote ondernemingen.

Onze doelstelling voor 2018 is om de kantoren in België, Nederland, Australië en de Verenigde Staten in hun markten te laten groeien en om de "footprint" World Options International wereldwijd uit te breiden.

Dankzij sterke relaties met de koeriers in de logistieke industrie zijn we er trots op om consultancy aan te bieden op het vlak van internationaal verzenden. Wij werken nauw met de grootste koeriers ter wereld samen om aan hun behoeften te voldoen.

An industry-leading online system

World Options have created an industry-leading online system that allows businesses to do everything digitally.

Pioneers in the shipping industry, World Options have invested heavily in the online shipping portal, so that all of our customers’ needs can be met with the click of a mouse. Businesses can log in and view multiple quotes between carriers in seconds, make an instant booking, get access to flexible tracking options, and rely upon a dedicated account manager, just a phone call away.

The online shipping portal was created by Stewart Butler of World Options in the UK, this provides the technology to all World Options International countries globally. Stewart had a vision and knew that there had to be a better way, to streamline shipping via one online system. He saw that things needed to change in order to move away from what was previously a very time-consuming, manual process of shipping. So with hard work and technology knowhow the World Options online shipping portal was born, we are pleased to have this technology available to our business customer and work together to further improve it.
