Looking for partners you can trust with your clients' cargo?

We know that the SFN network will only be as good as its members and therefore it is imperative that the quality of membership remains high. We care deeply about the network’s reputation and believe that to secure reciprocal business and preserve good reputation, excellence is required.

In such a competitive economy, no company can afford to lose business due to the unprofessional operations of an overseas partner. All our members are carefully vetted and must pass stringent entry procedures in order to be selected to represent their country.

SFN members have to make a decision to seek representation in the networks that are closest to their veritable strengths. Potential SFN members must have a proven track record in their niche network; trade references must be supplied and verified from companies that also specialise in the chosen dedicated market.

Some freight forwarders are genuinely strong in several fields of freight forwarding; these applicants are welcome to seek representation in more than one of SFN’s 5 networks, or join the Exclusive General Network, which is for companies strong in Air, Sea and Project.

We ensure that all members are highly competent and qualified, with a proven strong payment record – information predominantly provided by international trade references.

SFN’s Terms and Conditions, combined with the fact that members meet one another on an annual basis (whether in person or, currently, online), means that our SFN family does all within its power to behave in a decent manner towards its worldwide partners. Members are regularly reminded to treat their fellow partners as they would wish to be treated. Our network is steeped in mutual respect, professionalism and care.

You can rest assured that when you join SFN, you are joining an excellent network of agents.

Fed up with not getting a response, or not getting paid on time?

Our members pride themselves on responding quickly and paying on time. SFN Head Office is on hand to support you and chase up responses and payments. To be fair, such a service is rarely required as our members are professional, striving to pay and respond on time.

What about the financials - you don’t want to lose money, do you?

Wouldn’t it be great to be in a network where you get paid? Well, at SFN, this is the case. Year on year, 99% – 100% of all payments are made, even during economically challenging times. Considering how much business is exchanged, that shows how strong our network is.
