We Have The World Behind Us

More than just a network


Established in 2004, we are proud to be one of the most well established and professional global international logistics networks operating in the industry today. We are not simply one group that stands alone, but 3 networks that align together within to provide one of the most extensive freight forwarding groups in global logistics, so providing longevity and stability to all its members. Our alliance is proud to house the 3 following professional groups which house

- The Five Star Freight Systems Network
- PFI: Professional Forwarders International
- GENSFN: The General & Specialist Freight Network

With more than 800 global offices, in over 160 countries, in 6 continents, our 3 groups offer truly comprehensive global coverage for all their members

Philosophy


All our partners go the extra mile to assist each other and it is a great benefit to have friends in nearly all major cities and ports across the globe.

Our philosophy has never been to saturate our groups with a huge number of agents in each country.

We offer in the main sole agencies in the Five Star and PFI(Our General Freight Networks) to create a family feel (except countries with large populations and / or geographic areas) where we do engage multi agencies.

We do however revert to duel agencies if the Network recognises the need for a secondary option in any area.

GENSFN is an open network and as such exclusivity in general does not apply
