RECENT ENQUIRIES
We receive regular enquiries from forwarders asking to join our network. These are sometimes in our full countries where we have long waiting lists, but we have also heard recently from companies in India, Korea, Malaysia, Poland, Spain and Thailand. We will let you know if any of the enquirers are strong enough to join our elite group.

NEW NETWORK MARKETING
We’re always trying to fill the gaps in countries where we have limited or no representation. It’s an ongoing challenge that we relish, finding high quality forwarders to join us. We are using all kinds of different marketing approaches. For example, the below. Thank you, Pearl, for your kind words.

These adverts are sent to our database of 100,000s of forwarders, sharing your company name widely across the industry. Please get in touch if you would like to be featured.

NEW ALLIANCE: CARGOWISE
IFN is pleased to announce a new partnership with WiseTech Global, the technology company behind the world’s leading global logistics software, CargoWise.

This global partnership is a strategic initiative designed to strengthen the network and open up a range of benefits for IFN members, including access to exclusive cost-savings on the integrated software platform. CargoWise has fast become the industry standard solution for forwarders and logistics professionals, so this is great news for members and the network as a whole. In fact, many members are already using CargoWise for their operations and we believe all members will experience vast improvements from the system. 

The range of modules available include freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, rate management, accounting, e-commerce, cross border compliance and more.

For more information or to see a demo, simply email industry@wisetechglobal.com. You can also visit www.cargowise.com

CargoWise will be present at our annual meeting in Dubai. You will be able to book an appointment with them to discuss the software.
