We are here to represent and support members of the Canadian international freight forwarding industry.
Whatever your role in the movement of goods, the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association is important. For freight forwarders, we offer support, advocacy and the stature of our world-class CIFFA brand. To a shipper or importer, we provide a list of highly professional freight forwarding companies, all of whom operate using Standard Trading Conditions. To the providers of goods and services and to carriers in all modes, we facilitate access to some 250+ regular member firms.
