The Numbers Don’t Lie

FORCE, or Freight Organization of Related Cargo Experts, is a world-wide association of independent freight forwarders, providing multimodal global transportation and logistics services. Established in 1982 the network has continually attracted quality growth to it’s membership year on year, representing and increasing its presence in all major markets. It was founded back in 1982, when six freight forwarders from Europe, America and Africa met in New York. At the first meeting in 1981, it was decided to develop an international network of independent, compatible freight forwarders, which would work together for both company and customer benefit.

The next meeting took place in Paris in the following year, where both the name and logo were adopted. The name FORCE and its original acronym – Family of Related Cargo Experts – embodies the spirit in which these independent companies now continue to work together. In 1998 FORCE found a home for its full-time secretariat in the UK, becoming a Limited Company under the title of The International FORCE Company Limited, trading as The International FORCE Group. In 2008, the organization ceased use of the UK based Limited company and now trades merely as “The International FORCE Group”.

FORCE members have experienced enormous benefits in meeting other forward-thinking forwarders from different countries at FORCE events, such as the Annual Congress, Regional meetings which have been held in countries like Australia, New Zealand, China, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Egypt, and more recently, Netherland to name a few. Here, companies and individuals forge lasting links and friendships, helping to expand their business potential and global representation. All FORCE members are well established both operationally and financially. They have an excellent reputation both within their country and internationally, and carry out their business with the utmost integrity. The name FORCE embodies the spirit in which the members work together, and is synonymous with their aims and objectives to provide the highest standard of service to customers. It is also an expression of their determination to maintain a powerful influence in the global transportation industry.

FORCE membership guarantees customers of the network a global and multimodal capability, and a reliability second to none for the carriage and handling of their cargo.
