Why become a Member?
The NY/NJ Foreign Freight Forwarders & Brokers Association, Inc. has served the logistics industry in a multitude of important ways since its inception in 1917. While the issues and concerns constantly change course, the need for strength in unity in our industry does not. Become a member and have your voice heard.
Today, we are faced with ever changing technical requirements, in addition to government-imposed rules, regulations and vital security initiatives that impact on our ability to do business. As barriers to world trade continue to come down, it is only those companies that stay alert to new developments and keep well informed of changes in our fast-paced, competitive business, who will be poised to take advantage of the opportunities that lie ahead.
Our members have access to resources through the Association’s network of reliable communication channels, opportunities to meet face to face with their peers and legal counsel and attend career developing educational events.
