As a matter of fact, NAGAFF was formally established to usher in a sustainable freight forwarding practice in the logistics supply chain and to enthrone professionalism in the industry. It was a total liberation mission that led to the pursuit for the establishment of the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarders in Nigeria (CRFFN) by Dr Aniebonam and a few other great minds in the industry. Today the development of the sector is gradually moving towards its destination, with NAGAFF on the lead.
