Association Membership

Join as an Assocation Member

Association Members are organisations representing the entire (or part of) the forwarding sector in a territory. Each Association Member holds the right to present motions, as well as nomination and voting rights.

Association Membership with FIATA means an international representation among key stakeholders and decision makers in the freight forwarding and logistics industry. FIATA supports its members by advocating policy issues that will benefit them in their regional contexts. Association Members join a global community of freight forwarders and are provided with the tools and resources necessary to make their voices heard by governments and industry leaders.

Bring Your Expertise to FIATA

FIATA relies on its institutes and advisory bodies to provide advice on technical and policy issues concerning land-, sea-, air- and multimodal transport; logistics and customs; trade concessions; information technology, and more. FIATA members are spread across four regions: Africa and Middle East, Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe.

FIATA members interested in joining one of the institutes, advisory bodies, and/or regions are encouraged to visit the dedicated page to learn more about how they can get involved.
