Who We Are

FFSI Background FFSI Background


What is FETA? What is FETA?

FETA stands for the Far East Transportation Association which was established in 1982 by a group of Far East Asia-based freight forwarders with the objective of jointly seeking selectively reliable, aggressive and, preferably, locally managed companies to form a strong strategic global network of alliances. Through the years, FETA was able to establish effective policies to control the performance of its members in the areas of account settlement, sales and marketing, communications services and network management.

Our Future Goals Our Future Goals

The vision of its founders was fulfilled when representation in over 180 cities located in 70 countries created a quality multinational service that increased every member's capability to serve its customers and to effectively compete with global freight forwarders.

Our Growth Our Growth

In March 2000, in order to enhance the impact of FETA as an effective global Association, the Board of Executive Committee approved to adopt the Association marketing name to be Feta Freight Systems International or in short FFSI. The future in the freight forwarding industry is quite clear. One must be a part of an effective global system to stay competitive. Local companies may attempt to globalise themselves but at a much slower pace and at greater financial exposure. Even multinational companies who do not have an expansive global coverage find that FFSI offers an option that can fast track this objective.
