FIATA works at the international level to represent service providers who operate in trade logistics and supply chain management. Through its FIATA documents and forms, digitalisation of key trade documents, annual congress and headquarters meeting, training and publications, it promotes trade facilitation and best practices among the freight forwarding community.

FIATA is committed to representing the interest of its members by actively engaging with the World Trade Organization, United Nations agencies and other international organisations, transport organisations, global partners and governments to promote and protect the interest of the industry.
