CIFFA’s brand has international strength. It’s recognized as a world-class association for freight forwarders, load brokers, and carter/drayage companies. With a long track record of success, high standards, and strong relationships with various government bodies, a CIFFA membership guarantees that our industry and your business is well represented.
When people deal with a CIFFA forwarder, they know they’re working with trained professionals that carry Freight Forwarders Liability Insurance and load brokers that abide by the FMSCA Surety bond requirement. Our members aren’t ‘fly by night’ organizations, and businesses trust that reputation.
CIFFA works as a champion for business and industry sector rights, and represents a common front for international freight forwarders, load brokers, and carter/drayage companies. We liaise with government, conventions, carriers, IATA and FIATA issues, both nationally and internationally.
Our association is the voice of Freight Forwarding in Canada – whether it is to provide insight to Canada Border Services Agency when drafting the new regulations, or to work with carriers and governments in drafting procedures. We also provide early visibility to members on important government initiatives.
Change is constant. Regulations change. Dangerous Goods requirements change. Association staff scans information from national and international sources, transforming data into timely and relevant information.
The CIFFA Affinity program is designed for the benefit of our members. The goal is to add value for all member firms and their employees through discounts or other cost-saving opportunities.
Travel insurance is important to help protect you, your family or visitors to Canada from costs that can occur due to an unforeseen medical emergency during a trip or an unexpected reason to cancel or interrupt a trip. Without it, travellers may be left to pay significant out of pocket expenses. If you are looking for Single Trip Emergency Medical coverage, CIFFA/Gallagher have recently introduced a new plan that provides up to $5 Million for COVID-19 emergencies while travelling outside of Canada.
