    How to gain value

    F&L is an active, dynamic community that works very hard year-round to deliver value. Active members and their colleagues have opportunities to strengthen personal and business performance:

    1. Attend two F&L meetings each year (May/Nov) for interaction, debate and networking. Every meeting has a theme, roundtable debates, member and speaker presentations, Think Tank, working groups, and networking events.  Conference agendas and locations are driven by what is interesting to members. 
    2. Become involved in project groups to look in depth at a topic of particular interest to you. Teams evolve cross-industry and cross-border, and benefit from wide experience of members.  
    3. Provide feedback to ensure F&L delivers. You will achieve more if you give input into conference agendas / objectives / locations and get involved with the Forum’s activities throughout the year.
    Your contract with F&L
    1. The annual corporate membership fee of €1,950 is invoiced and due in January. Members joining midway through a year pay pro-rata.  This fee has not increased for more than a decade and F&L tries to avoid increases.  You are encouraged to involve your team members in F&L as this increases the benefit and you do not pay more.  
    2. In-person meetings are heavily subsidised by sponsors and F&L.  Members pay €400 pp  to help cover costs of catering, venues and so on.  Non-members pay more.  F&L is non-profit and any surplus funds are used to subsidise future conferences / organise events and visits for members.
    3. You must give minimum 3 months’ notice to resign as a member – 30 September is the latest date by which you may resign for the following year which begins 1 January.
    4. Logistics service provider and other companies not classified as “shippers” must be bring at least one shipper into membership within the first 12 months to ensure the focus of the F&L community remains broad.
    5. You should abide by the Articles of Association as they currently stand with particular reference to articles 6 and 8 – see F&L Articles of Association – English

    “There is incredible added value in this network”

    “These F&L events free up my mind and then’s when the good ideas come.  Here I find the connections to help make things happen”

    “Looking in your business doesn’t tell you what’s around; it is my competitive advantage to know what is happening elsewhere and using that to enhance our strategy”



    Ask questions

    Build relationships with other industry leaders, learn how they are tackling issues and take away ideas you can try

    Access a host of online discussions, working groups, two high level conferences (24 hours) each year and  and other events in between

    Frank discussions – we don’t invite the press, and you and your company may not be quoted

    Drive what we discuss, what’s on our agendas: this is a members’ forum, for members

    Be part of it – you will find us big enough to be interesting, yet small enough to develop relationships
