NAFL stands for the National Association of Freight and Logistics. It was previously named NCFF - or National Committee of Freight Forwarders.
The NAFL was the Arabian Gulf's first national freight forwarders association. Founded in February 1992 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, NAFL was formed primarily to bring together in one body all the major players in the UAE freight forwarding, logistics and shipping industry.
Broadly, its main goal is to ensure the UAE's leading position and Dubai's pre-eminence in the international freight and transportation fields.
NAFL is a member of FIATA, the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations, based in Zurich, Switzerland.
Providing training in the industry has always been an important part of the NAFL’s operations. It has established a training facility within its headquarters, where people can study the globally recognised FIATA diploma.
