FIATA, the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations logoFIATA – the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations, is a non-governmental, membership-based organisation representing freight forwarders in some 150 countries.

FIATA’s membership is composed of 114 Association Members and over 5,500 Individual Members, overall representing an industry of 40,000 freight forwarding and logistics firms worldwide.

Founded in 1926 in Vienna, Austria, FIATA owes its acronym to its French name (Fédération Internationale des Associations de Transitaires et Assimilés) and is known as ‘the global voice of freight logistics’. FIATA is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.

FIATA is a reference source on international policies and regulations governing the freight forwarding and logistics industry. 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.
