Individual Membership with FIATA is the result of the free choice of the freight forwarding entrepreneur to show a sense of compliance and belonging. The most important consequence of Individual Membership is connected with the reputation of the Individual Member, in as much as the Individual Member identifies itself in the objectives and rules of FIATA e.g. the Business Integrity Statement. Most Individual Members decide to affiliate to FIATA because they want to benefit from the good reputation that a highly protected brand such as FIATA affords.
You can view all the benefits of becoming an Individual Member.
You are also kindly requested to read the FIATA Statutes, in particular Chapter 4 on Membership, article 4.5.7.
You can use the FIATA new member registration manual to guide you through the process.
