Global Shippers’ Forum

The Global Shippers’ Forum (GSF) was formally incorporated and registered as a non-governmental organisation in the United Kingdom in June 2011. It’s the world’s leading trade association for shippers engaged in international trade moving goods by all modes of transport.

Origins of the Global Shippers’ Forum

The GSF was created in 2006 as the successor to the informal Tripartie Shippers’ Group (TSG), first organised in 1994. The decision to incorporate the GSF was taken to enable the GSF to establish formal recognition, consultation status and accreditation with the major UN agencies such as the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), International Labour Organisation (ILO), and the World Customs Organisation.

Focus and Aims

The GSF represents shippers’ interests and that of their respective organisations from Asia, Europe, North and South America and Africa.

The main focus of the GSF is to influence commercial developments in the international freight transport industry and the policy decisions of governments and international organisations as they affect shippers and receivers of freight.
