Our Team

Who is C5C?

Connecting 5 Continents was founded in 2007 and from the very beginning we had a vision to create a quality cargo network that helps bring freight forwarders together for mutual benefit.  The quality of such a network is based on the quality of its members and management team.  Our network does exactly this.
