The Australian Federation of International Forwarders (AFIF) and the Customs Brokers and Forwarders Council of Australia Inc. (CBFCA) recently meet with the CTO of Sydney airport to discuss proposals to increasethe security of freight collections.

As part of these discussions the subject of mis-delivered freight was raised and the CTO has agreed to have this measured by AFIF and the result sent back to them for analysis.

As a result, AFIF has asked its members to advise the secretariat if they have received mis-delivered cargo. If so, AFIF will enter this information onto a spreadsheet and give it back to each CTO to allow what AFIF called “putting right what is a major issue with freight delivery”.

It said the procedure has the full backing of all CTO’s.
