About Us

Everyone at the same table; pull up a chair
Our mission

F&L is an international network of senior business leaders focused on freight logistics across the supply chain and operating in all sectors and transport modes, based across Europe and globally.

Everyone sits at the same table at F&L.  Leaders come together for confidential discussion with a broad spectrum of leaders across other industries, sectors and geographies to network, learn, ask questions, inform themselves about the market and issues that concern them, and to exchange experiences  – what’s going well, not so well and how can we prepare for what’s coming next?  

“The high quality of your association, members, and the thematics are very relevant to our business trends and in my opinion quite visionary

Why does it matter?

Here at F&L you have the largest cargo owners on earth, the people with the solutions, and bringing that together in a dialogue is what the modern economy is about – how do you create networks, and through those conversations, how do we create solutions for the future?

The pace of change across the business landscape is accelerating and the implication and challenge for freight logistics is tremendous.  We can build a better global supply chain which serves all stakeholders.  But to be effective, we need to understand the holistic picture and other stakeholders.

F&L is a not-for-profit organisation set up in 1994 and we do not lobby.  The market and members dictate our agenda and topics for discussion.

What makes F&L unique?

F&L has always driven a breadth of participation which crosses industry sectors, country borders and job function.  We focus on our network and look always for expertise, experience, insights and new perspectives on the strategic topics that are critical for today’s senior business leader to engage with – regardless of role or industry.

This is a members’ organisation with a small and highly engaged team.  We are funded by annual membership fees and by conference participation fees.  This means that we can retain a neutral perspective and focus 100% on maximising benefit for the individuals and organisations in our network.

“There are so many takeaways that I cannot summarise – F&L is an amazing platform for networking, inspiration, learning what works for others and what we should maybe avoid.  I have a lot of new contacts and look forward to the next event”

“F&L’s format is super-good because it’s not too big and not too small; you have the ability to  connect with nearly everyone – and it’s the right insight between critical topics and current market developments” 

“If you look at history, innovation doesn’t come just from giving people incentives; it comes from creating environments where their ideas can connect“
