On behalf of the freight forwarding community, the Sri Lanka Logistics & Freight Forwarders’ Association has extended its best wishes to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and the United National Front for Good Governance for the decisive victory achieved in the recently concluded Parliamentary elections.   The Sri Lanka Logistics & Freight Forwarders’ Association was established in 1981 with the objective of bringing all freight forwarders under one umbrella, and with a view of institutionalising and professionalising the trade. 

Today the Government, relevant Government agencies and the trade have recognised the SLFFA as the apex body representing the industry.  It serves as a strong advocate to the Government on air freight, shipping and port related matters. 

It is of the view that Sri Lanka has immense potential to be a global shipping hub, and what is required today is to ensure that the various plans that have been developed over the years after considerable analysis are fast implemented.  

It assures the new Government its fullest support and cooperation in the betterment and further development of the economy and the shipping industry of Sri Lanka.
