became clear that being an ‘transparent’
service supplier with good ‘visibility’ can be
a route to success. We should be open to our
customers and be willing to follow new idea’s
in respect of remuneration, be a true partner
with an willingness to maybe even share our
cost calculations. The conclusions of this part
of the session where very clear! Joint fair
participation! Joint sales calls and a active

                                                      workshop. As conclusion it was decided that
                                                      individual members should continue the

                                                      done so and started to work with this
                                                      company.


                                                      At the same time it was decided that the Atlas

to the delivery agent (even a non Atlas
member), same has been meanwhile
completed and can be used. During the next
workshop members discussed the necessity of
obligatory sending of sales leads and
obligator y repor ting of collaboration
between Atlas members. It was concluded
that both issues would not be enforceable
thus would not lead to success, it was agreed
that on the website a sales lead entry form
will be made available (under construction).


That last workshop handled the necessity of
pre-arranged or better said pre-agreed local
LCL charges to be levied at the point of entry.
It appeared that in the past LCL shipments

                                                      have been dispatched on which both port of
                                                      entry and point of entry local charges to be
                                                      paid by the consignee. This against to normal
                                                      practice at the point of entry and producing
                                                      substantial commercial problems for the
                                                      delivery agents. It has been agreed that on
                                                      the Atlas website at the LCL section a page
                                                      per country will be made available whereby
                                                      normal point of entry local handling charges
                                                      will be shown which will be the standard for
                                                      the transaction between the two Atlas
                                                      members. (still under construction).


                                                      The two full days of one to one meetings
                                                      where just enough to fill all the necessary

slots and appointments. The social events
prove to be an essential part of annual get
together. The welcome receptions was a very
lively and entertaining affair, a good
opportunity to meet old acquaintances and
make new friends. The cultural evening
indeed showed what Portugal cuisine has to
offer. The Gala evening was truly a Gala
affair. Hosted and sponsored by our
Portuguese member Marmod, started with a
Royal reception in the former Royal Place
(Palacaio Nacional da Ajuda) An extremely
beautiful location showing the splendor of
Portugal from the eighteen hundreds. Not
only a beautiful location but also excellent
cocktails with local delicacies where served,
followed by an excellent sit down dinner. As
cherry on the pudding the group of over one
hundred attending members where
enchanted and maybe even Voodonised by
the Portuguese performing group. After a
number of re-calls it was ‘hide them up, move
them out’ back to the busses as definitely one
of the most memorable Gala dinners came to
an end. On Friday evening still some sixty
delegates joint for the farewell diner. All in
all this annual meeting again proved to be a

huge success and supplied the members with new or renewed opportunities
to use their Atlas membership to its utmost benefit. We lie to use this
opportunity to thank our host Marmod one more time for their excellent
hospitality and assistance. Chapeau!


Next years meeting? A lively point of discussion during many of the ‘get-
togethers’. This started by the announcement that the 2009 meeting to be
held in Berlin! However based on the 2008 ‘Shengen” visa constrains,
combined with the need to carefully examine one’s travel budget and the
need to visit the Far East yearly by many of the members, it was decided on
‘popular demand’ to have next years meeting to be held in the Far East.
After careful examination of the visa requirements and good air access, the
decision was taken to organize the 10th Annual Atlas International
Conference in Singapore. The tentative dates are; start Tuesday October 6th
(evening) till Friday October 9th. Exact hotel location to be confirmed.


This magazine will reach you most probably just after yearend holidays,
nevertheless on behalf of the Atlas team, we do wish you your staff and your
family a very prosperous 2009.

                                   Atlas Insolvency Insurance Cover


1.      Purpose and scope of the insurance

The purpose of the Insolvency Insurance cover of Atlas International Network Ltd. (hereinafter Atlas) is to
provide compensation for monies lost due to non-payment of invoices for handling of transactions between
Atlas-members due to insolvency or protracted default of an Atlas member. The waiting period for protected
default is 90 days after due date of the oldest invoice. The insurance is a benefit for members of the Atlas
Network.

2.      Limitation of compensation

Compensation is limited to USD 20,000 per Atlas-member for losses caused by another Atlas-member. The
maximum to be paid in claims in any twelve month period shall not exceed USD 200,000. For all claims a
deductible of USD 500 will apply. Claims for invoices under USD 500 need therefore not be submitted to
Atlas HQ or underwriters.

Claims will be paid in the order in which they are received by Atlas Headquarters. All claims approved for
payment by Underwriters must be assigned to Atlas prior to payment. Claims for losses must be filed within
the term of the claimant’s membership of Atlas.

The maximum credit term allowed for invoices between Atlas members is 60 days.

It is further a condition of this insurance that an Atlas member should immediately report any information on
possible non-payment of the risk thereof to Atlas Headquarters. Atlas Headquarters will inform underwriters.
Information meant here concerns uncovered checks, protested exchange notes, receiverships etc.)

3.      Inception and termination of cover

This insurance covers all invoices dated on or after January 1st 2007. Incase the insurance is terminated, all
invoiced dated prior to the termination date are covered under this insurance.

4.      Exclusions

The following transactions and losses are specifically excluded from coverage under the plan:

     a. Payment for the cost of lost or damaged cargo.
     b. Losses resulting from the failure to obtain a properly endorsed original bill of lading or from the failure
        to obtain a proper bank release of cargo.
     c. Payment for losses that are otherwise covered by a member’s Errors and Omissions Insurance.
     d. Losses suffered by non Atlas-members or the clients of an Atlas-member.
     e. Losses resulting from currency exchange fluctuations.
     f. Any loss resulting from any measure or decision of national, regional or local authorities in any
        country which result in confiscation or seizure of merchandise.
     g. Losses resulting from any political event, economic difficulty or legislative measures which prevent or
        delay the transfer of payments.
     h. Losses resulting from war, rebellion, hostilities, riot, civil commotion and natural disasters.
     i. Subsequent losses after a claim is filed resulting from continuation of business between an Atlas-
        member filing the claim and the Atlas-member identified as debtor in the claim.
     j. Losses resulting from demurrage, storage, or container detention charges.
     k. Claims for losses as a consequence of technical or commercial dispute between Atlas members.
     l. Intercompany invoices

5.      Termination of Protection:

Protection under the Atlas Insolvency Insurance Cover will terminate upon e-mail notification by Atlas
Headquarters to the Atlas-member and removal of the member from the Atlas member list on the Atlas
website or upon the non-renewal of membership.



                                                         10
6.      Claims Procedures

     a. Claims to Atlas Insolvency Insurance Cover must be filed within 90 days of the due date of the
        unpaid invoice(s) and during the coverage period. No claims will be accepted for invoices less
        than 90 days of the due date.


     b. Claims must be submitted in writing via e-mail to info@atlas-network.net or by fax or regular mail.
        Claims must be received by Atlas Headquarters within the time frame indicated above under
        paragraph 6 sub a. Atlas HQ will submit the claim to Underwriters.

        Claims should be addresses as follows:

        Atlas International Network Ltd.
        Santvoortbeeklaan 25
        B-2100 Antwerp
        Belgium

        Fax +32 3 231 78 98

        Atlas Insolvency Insurance Cover            will acknowledge a claim upon receipt and will conduct a
        preliminary investigation, after which a preliminary determination will be reached:
            1. If it is determined that a dispute exists, both parties will be notified and the Atlas Insolvency
                Insurance Cover closed.
            2. For the purposes of this procedure, a “dispute” will be defined as a situation in which a debt is
                unpaid for a cause, and not simply due to lack of message acknowledgement or financial
                difficulties. If there is no dispute and the Atlas-member confirms money is owed, they will have
                15 days in which to satisfy the debt from the date member confirms debt is valid.

     c. Along with the claimform, all supporting documents such as invoices, bills of lading, delivery receipts,
        communications, etc. must be supplied to Atlas Headquarters in order to enable Underwriters to
        review the entire file before approving a claim.

     d. If Underwriters approve the claim, then Atlas Headquarters reserve the right to terminate membership
        and notify all other members of the action.

     e. Atlas Headquarters reserves the right to offset claim amounts against monies due by the claimant to
        Atlas.
