A company must keep at least one year beginner level (excluding protection) membership in the network. Only the members who have minimum one year history and smooth background in the network can upgrade its membership to the Verified Level. After successfully completion of 1st year free membership, the company must advise two references from inside of the network who can confirm service quality and credibility to become a VERIFIED member. Verified members enjoy the liberty to cooperate with one another without hesitation.

INO Global Protection is applicable for freight payment defaults only. It provides compensation for unpaid invoices related to the handling of freight transactions such as air freight, sea freight, land freight, inland transportation, customs clearance service fee and standart local port charges.


Cyber fraud, customs penalties, warehouse charges, storage charges, demurrage charges, value of goods, duties/taxes, errors and omissions are not covered/protected by INO Global Protection. Cargo claim is not applicable in this program. A member can obtain the cargo insurance and third party liability insurance separately. Business conducted between members of different INO Networks Group associations/networks is not covered.


Forwarders avoid to start new cooperations considering that they may not collect the freight amount from new partners. This often may cause to miss a great opportunity to cooperate for heavy volumes in future. On the other side, partners who have been in cooperation since long time may enter into a discussion how to finance a shipment. INO Global Protection removes all these hesitations and allows members to minimize risks. INO Global Protection works based on "protection against a verified member".
