ASEAN Federation of Forwarders Associations

Improving and fostering relationships since 1991.

About AFFA.

In recognition of the vital role of transport and communications in development of the economy, the Transport and Communications Decade for Asia and the Pacific covering the period 1985 to 1994 was launched by the Meeting of the Ministers responsible for Transport and Communications in February 1985. A major aim of the Decade was to accelerate the development of the transport and communications in the ESCAP region in order to keep the development of these countries in pace with global development.

AFFA’S Objective:

AFFA was formed with the following objectives :

  • to unify all freight forwarders in the ASEAN region through national forwarders’ associations.
  • to foster, promote, develop and maintain close cooperation between and among freight forwarders in the ASEAN region.
  • to represent members in their collective interests in relation to freight forwarding matters peculiar to the ASEAN region.
  • to purpose all measures to improve the quality, standard and professionalism of freight forwarders in the ASEAN  regions as well as to match with the Decade programme.

Answers in action.

Freight forwarders have always turned to AFFA for the resources and information necessary to outperform – to put answers into action. Together we are achieving amazing things.

We’ve built the essential community for forwarders by inspiring curiosity, debate and connection. We’re a collective force that believes knowledge itself is not power. Rather, power is knowledge applied.
