About IFL


International Forwarding is a member of the following organisations, all of which offer considerable benefits that are often passed on to our customers.


Authorised Economic Operator

AEO certification is an internationally recognised  quality mark indicating that our role in the international supply chain is secure, and that our customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant. Authorised Economic Operators are subject to less stringent day-to-day customs controls which improves supply chain efficiency. IFL was granted AEO accreditation in 2010.


Road Haulage Association

The Road Haulage Association (RHA) is a long-standing British trade association, representing members of the road haulage industry and allied businesses. It provides our company with technical support, ensuring that we are aware of legal changes within the distribution industry, and that we understand and adapt to regulatory change.



International Forwarding Ltd is a member of Palletways UK & European Network, which provides a distribution service for palletised goods. IFL has been awarded Platinum Club status for 2017/18 which recognises excellence in service, performance and commitment. You can read more on our Pallet delivery page.
