What makes GFA so special for your company?
Our logistics networks are focused on helping members network with the right agents. Unlike many other freight forwarding associations, we can proudly say: "we have chosen nearly all of our members personally!"
This is done through our extensive travel work and personal recommendations and referrals. Our representatives travel all over the world, visiting members and potential members in order to evaluate them and their facilities. To date, GFA representatives have been sent to 100 countries around the world.
Our administration is heavily involved in the quality of cooperation amongst our partners. Any issues regarding member reliability, disputes and financial issues are reported to the network’s management and will be taken care of immediately.
GFA is the only logistics network with a shipment obligation policy which is monitored by our custom developed online software platform. This way we can oversee the day to day business of our network and make sure that our members are cooperating with each other to a certain extent. Most importantly, this system ensures that members are receiving an appropriate return of shipments.
Invoice Shipment Report
ISR – Our custom Invoice Shipment Report (ISR) system, sends out automated payment reminders to members of our network and gives us an overview of the outstanding amounts within our group as well as any payment defaults.
We all are humans, not robots. As a human we may make a mistake from time to time. GFA assists its members in finding a mutual solution whenever a dispute arises. We evaluate a situation neutral and with the full background of our decades of knowledge in the global forwarding industry.
Dispute Management with the aim of a "golden handshake".
