Join SFN

Our members will testify that joining us was a great decision for their company.

SFN Meetings are held annually to provide an invaluable forum for the exchange of  business between SFN members. For one set of travel expenses, delegates have the unique opportunity to attend 1-2-1 meetings with fellow members, in order to generate new business.

Our next meeting will be a joint event with our sister network, International Freight Network (IFN). The SFN | IFN Meeting will be held in Pattaya, Thailand, 9 – 11 April 2025. This is the perfect opportunity for our members to meet in person, sharing both 1-to-1 appointments in the meeting room and social events in the evenings. If you would like to join our network and be a part of this great event, please complete the SFN Application Form or email us for more information: kelly@specialistfreightnetworks.com

As well as the formal setting of the meeting room, the informal welcome reception, gala and farewell dinner provide ample opportunity for members to get to know one another and build trust. The meetings enable bonds to be formed and strengthened from year to year, leading to more and more business.
With Kelly Bunyan’s experience in hosting Network Meetings, the events are always highly productive and fun. Kelly Bunyan has been hosting freight forwarder meetings since 2005. You can see details of all her previous meetings on SFN’s sister network’s website: World Freight Network (WFN).

"SFN conferences are always very nice. Along with business another important element that I find at SFN conferences is friendship and genuine good ones. I always believe that conferences enhance one’s perception of a company and it is instant chemistry either to work or not work with a particular company and that’s why we see business between certain companies increases year after year. The conferences serve a dual purpose - increase bonding amongst members and renew trust and desire to work with companies which may have been missed out in the earlier instances. I am very happy that we became members and more importantly continue to be members."

"Thank you for putting together such a wonderful, wonderful conference again! This is my second year with SFN, and last year was a great success, the program far exceeded my expectations. A job well done!!! It must be a lot of work to set up and I would like to thank Kelly and the SFN Team for all their hard work and efforts in organising the event programme. The SFN Network is truly a great group of people and each year I left with new business partners and new friends as well.  Thanks again and I am already looking forward to meeting everyone again at the next meeting."

"Specialist Freight Networks is exactly that – a group of specialist, experienced and well-chosen individuals brought together to do business. Communication in our industry is key and something that SFN embodies not only during the meeting, but all year round. The meeting itself is extremely well organised, not only in the choice of venue but the agenda as a whole. It makes the art of networking easier. Kelly and the team do an incredible job to ensure that delegates get what they set out to; make new friends, expand knowledge and the ultimate goal: to win business. Our business has thrived since being part of SFN. Long may it continue."

"Just a quick thank you for the successful SFN Conference held this year in South Africa, to the members that were not able to attend, you missed out. Thank you for allowing us to host you in South Africa, it was a pleasure and many new friends were made by all. We are used to conversing via email and rarely get the opportunity to meet one another face to face. There are a lot of new prospects businesswise that was discussed at this year’s conference. Thank you for making the conference memorable and I look forward to growing the business with our partners."
