The European Freight and Logistics Leaders Forum (F&L) is a shipper-driven international non profit association established in 1994 to bring together shippers and supply chain service companies together to debate and discuss current topics and best practice.
With member logistics leaders representing major shippers and service companies across currently 18 Council of Europe countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Lithuania, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Turkey and the UK) F&L is set to grow further as participation at meetings grows.
Every jurisdiction throughout Europe provides for the fundamental right to assemble. Members and participants at F&L behave at all times in compliance with competition and anti-trust laws and this obligation is stated in Articles 6 and 9 of the F&L Articles of Association (English).
F&L members debate all aspects of logistics and transport supply, based on the principle that “best practice can be shared at a high level”. Members take an important and active part in the use, development, harmonisation and modernisation of multimodal freight transport systems in Europe. This exchange of professional experience during the F&L meetings results in business optimization and consumer benefits and perfectly fits the goals of competition and anti-trust policies.
Press and journalists are not permitted at F&L events.
F&L groups entities which use, manage, service or organise freight transport to:
F&L is not a lobby organisation; we are a forum that looks to the future and considers how the learning from one country or industry can find application in another. F&L does not at any time recommend specific courses of action to the European Commission or any other Institution, however institutions and the European Commission do use F&L as a sounding board for new initiatives or legislative priorities and the round table discussions at F&L meetings contribute heavily to that.
