About the FTA

Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) is Australia's leading representative body for the international supply chain sector bringing together importers, customs brokers, freight forwarders and logistics service providers.

The Australian Peak Shippers' Association (APSA) is the peak body as designated by the Federal Minister of Infrastructure and Transport performing a vital role in protecting Australia's export supply chain.

Together we form an influential advocacy alliance ensuring that our members are at the forefront of all emerging supply chain issues through our responsive operational support, professional development training, industry updates, commercial services and corporate events.

FTA is approved by the Australian Border Force and Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment as a provider of mandatory training for customs broker Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Continued Biosecurity Competency (CBC) training. This training is provided online and at our FTA CPD Border Compliance face to face events nationally.
