The Irish International Freight Association (IIFA) has designed, delivered and administered the FIATA Diploma in Freight Forwarding, to people currently employed in the freight forwarding and supply chain industry. Since 2008 to 2011, the course was the first to be delivered online.
IRELAND, from the “land of saints and scholars” in the 7th Century to an international centre of educational excellence.
IIFA is the sole representative body and official voice of Freight Forwarding in Ireland. Established in 1962, it has 100 members who between them employ more than 3,000 people and handle more than 90% of Ireland’s €148 billion international merchandise trade.
70 MILLION PEOPLE worldwide proudly claim IRISH Heritage.
IIFA is aware of the strategic importance of its role in a country where 82% of manufacturing output is exported, much of it by the 1,000+ overseas companies that have located here. The association is pledged to raising the professionalism of the Freight Forwarding sector in Ireland through its educational and representative roles; and by fostering the highest ethical standards among its membership.
Throughout the ages, IRISH music has reached all corners of the world. Contemporary musicians such as U2 and Van Morrisson continue this acclaimed tradition.
IIFA’s overall aim is to ensure that the concerns of members and their clients are heard and acted upon, thus ensuring that the flow of physical trade between Ireland and the rest of the world is as efficient and cost-effective as possible.

Freight Forwarding in recent years has undergone a massive transformation in response to the demands and opportunities presented by technology and globalisation. The Freight Forwarder’s role will continue to evolve with technology and trade. In the years ahead, it is anticipated that freight forwarding will develop as a valuable export service in its own right.
