The Five Star Freight Systems Global Agency Networks were established in 2004. Collectively they form the complete alliance, which takes in the following groups;

Our office locations cover nearly all the major ports and airports globally.

Our complete alliance covers more than 800 offices in over 180 countries worldwide, taking in thousands of staff who collectively share a vast amount of professional and invaluable industry experience.

GSFN is an open network, meaning we accept options for our agencies,

We like to offer a choice for our members, as history shows us, some have strengths in a specific mode of transport, whilst some possess strength in others, in this way no business enquiry is lost.

However we do not believe in flooding our agencies to dilute business away, it is simple competition with healthy options for all.

As of 2019 GSFN fully encourages all its members to develop ALL types of business together, so by joining us you are committing to develop in all directions of forwarding

In 2018 we made an important and strategic decision to partner up with a very forward thinking company, Buytasker, who have are bringing now another dimension in system operations and huge benefits to all our members via the introduction of their digital platform.

The Five Star Alliance continues to be a leader in International Networking. Established 14 years ago, and with 25 global conferences behind us, and now with the huge added value of all our technology products, we believe we offer a great balance of reputation and value
