WELCOME TO WFN
World Freight Network (ISO 9001:2008 Certified) was established in 2004 and has successfully linked together 241 independent freight forwarders in 103 countries worldwide (Registered in the UK: # 05275110).
The world economy has globalised at a tremendous pace over the past 30 years with the IT revolution bringing buyers and sellers from around the globe together. Shipping companies are an integral part of the process. Therefore, it is important, now more than ever, for independent freight forwarders to join together.
Every year new freight networks spring up, often started by a forwarder who observes the achievements of the world's leading networks and believes that it is easy to replicate that success. However, their motivation is often financial and not surprisingly, a year or two passes and these networks are nowhere to be seen. The fact that they disappear doesn't deter others from trying; the endless cycle or recycling continues - and freight forwarders are bombarded by invitations on a weekly basis.
What makes WFN different?
Firstly, WFN has a 9 year proven track record of generating sustainable new business revenue for Members. Not only does WFN membership bring Members new business, but we also provide them with the ability to promote themselves to their customers as an independent company with a difference as they are connected to a strong network of overseas agents in more than 100 countries. This provides our Members (and more importantly their customers) with the confidence that they have access to dedicated, expert partners to finish the job they start, as professionally and competently as if they had their own office in the destination country.
WFN has a proactive management team with strong leadership. During 2011, 100% of all WFN payments were honoured and 99% in 2012. With over 240 companies in the network - this statistic is exceptional and certainly not achievable outside the safety of WFN.
"Since joining, we have been able to develop aggressive business with various partners in the network. Today, many of the members of the group are not only business associates but personal friends as well."

As a member of the WFN, we are fishing in the world ocean of cargo with large and reliable nets – not with a rod."
