Association Members

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.

Individual Members

Individual Membership with FIATA is the result of a free choice by a freight forwarding entrepreneur to show a sense of compliance and belonging. The most important consequence of Individual Membership is connected with the reputation of the Individual Member, in as much as the Individual Member identifies itself in the objectives and rules of FIATA e.g. the Business Integrity Statement. Most Individual Members decide to get affiliated with FIATA because they want to benefit from the reputation that a highly protected brand such as the FIATA one affords. 

Individual Members applying after 30 September of a given year should note that – if and once their application has been approved –, they will become members from 01 January of the following year. For example, Individual Members applying after 30 September 2022 will become members starting 01 January 2023.

Please contact [email protected] in case you have any questions.
