Future Forwarding was formed in 1977 and we are proud to remain a privately owned company.

We believe since all freight forwarders and Customs brokers must use the same transport providers, what separates us from the crowd are our intensely personal service and our people. Our people are our greatest asset and we are grateful for the way they work tirelessly for our customers every day.

With a remarkable tenure and retention rate, Future Forwarding defies the industry trend and keeps our people, which gives our customers the best possible service.
