Initially, the name of the association was “Association of Forwarding Agents Port Klang” or its acronym AFAPK. As the name implies, the main purpose of the set up was to protect and champion the interest of Forwarding Agents or Custom Brokers. As the logistics industry evolved, naturally, the association would have to evolve too, thus, in May 2003, the association name, Association of Forwarding Agent Port Klang (AFAPK) was changed to Selangor Freight Forwarders and Logistics Association (SFFLA).


To promote SFFLA‘s members activities (upstream businesses) and to enhance the awareness of Port Klang as the premier port in Malaysia (the gateway to Malaysia), promoting the services and incentives available in the port and promoting more activities for the business community and logistics players (downstream busineses).

SFFLA will undertake to market and promote its members’ activities / businesses through participation in exhibitions, trade missions, dialogues and forums, locally and internationally. Through all this, it is hoped that the members will benefit directly and indirectly through the extended local and international network co-operation and collaboration in all the logistics activities.

SFFLA will also undertake to protect members’ interests through a pro-active and consultative approach in mediating and handling disputes and grievances that affect our members.
