What is Global Logistics Associates (GLA)?
We are a global not-for-profit association of independent freight forwarders and Customs brokers dedicated to providing our members and their clients with the best worldwide logistics services, adding value to their international supply-chain operations.
Established in 1989, GLA is one of the oldest and most succesful freight associations. Our primary goals are to give our members the ability to better compete against larger companies on a worldwide basis and to improve profits. Our global coverage, experience and local expertise of our members allows us to provide the more personalized service to our customers while still responding to all of their worldwide logistics needs with competitive carrier options they would find on their own.
We have our own Non-vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) called Globetrans International (GTI) to provide competitively-priced ocean shipping services to our agents and their clients. Through GTI’s joint buying power; we also have access to a wide variety of service contracts issued by a full range of well known international shipping lines.
Global Logistics is ranked in the top 5 contributors of the National Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association of America (NCBFAA).This is what our members think of GLA:
“…the strength and profitability of our company has not only increased by virtue of being member of the association, but so has our credibility in the market place and this has exposed us to clients who we would have not been able to approach had it not been for the strength of the association. The membership fees are considered an investment for the company and one of the greatest assets of being a member of Global Logistics Associates is that you know who you are dealing with, you have confidence in the person handling your shipments, and you know that your payments are safe.”
