The Institute ensures that it helps international trade by providing committed professional freight forwarding agents. Formerly known as the National Association of Custom House Agents (NACHA), the organization has district offices that are located in major entry points all over the country. These districts offices are saddled with the responsibility of providing their members and the public with timely information on local issues of concern in Ghana’s international trade sector.
The Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders maintains a close relationship with the government, parastatals, and other institutions that serve as an influence on the industry.
