AFP Global Logistics Is Certified Woman Owned Business

What is a certified woman owned business?


National certification is provided through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). As more companies are realizing the benefits of partnering with diverse suppliers and government entities are increasingly required to give a certain number of contracts to minority-owned businesses, the demand for certified woman owned businesses continues to grow. By undergoing the complex and rigorous certification process, clients can rest assured that AFP Global Logistics is serious about our relationships with our partners. At the local level, we hold MBE and DBE MD state certifications.

What are the benefits of working with a woman owned business?


Diversity is becoming a hot-button topic and many corporations are beginning to understand that seeking out partnerships with women owned businesses allow them to leverage their business’s purchasing power in a way that benefits their supplier diversity goals. Many consumers are eager to purchase from companies that make an effort to reflect their core values and respond well to businesses that seek out a more diverse supply chain, making certification a win-win arrangement for both woman owned businesses and the companies that choose to work with them. Becoming a certified women owned business has allowed us to broaden our reach, and we look forward to what the next 25 years will hold!
