Universal Freight Organisation
Rachel Humphrey established the Universal Freight Organisation (UFO) in January 2000 (Registered in the UK. Company No 3966794) to provide independent freight forwarders access to a trusted, worldwide network of agents who could handle their shipments, whilst working professionally and safely under a strict Code of Conduct.
Today, UFO is an ISO 9001 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) certified association built on a foundation of mutual trust, shared knowledge, experience and resources to help each Member company grow their business by either referring one another or doing business directly with one another.
With 119 independent freight forwarders located in 106 countries, we are proud to have maintained our ‘One Member per Country’ policy (with the exception of USA and China), making us one of the only remaining exclusive freight forwarder networks in the world.
Due to our exclusivity, the quality and professionalism of each approved company is of utmost importance. Members are selected due to their excellent reputations within the industry, their accreditation by international authorities and have passed a strict entry procedure.
Our Quality Control Survey and Online Payment Monitoring System ensures continued high performance levels. Each company is required to be an active member, prepared to reciprocate business and attend our Annual Meetings in order to develop business within the spirit of UFO.
