Cebu City – Cebu-based air, land and sea forwarders assembled together to officially establish the Philippine Multimodal Transport and Logistics Association, Inc. (Cebu Chapter) last September 13, 2019 at the Casino Espanol de Cebu. The newly organized association is composed of members formerly from the group of the Philippine International Seafreight Forwarders Association (Cebu Chapter) and the Airfreight Forwarders of the Philippines, Inc. (Cebu Chapter).
Elected as President of PMTLAI (Cebu Chapter) is Ms. Elaine Nolasco from Yusen Logistics Philippines, Inc. “The merging of these two associations is a milestone for the cargo and logistics group of Cebu. As PMTLAI, the only recognized logistics group not only by the Philippine Government but also known internationally. This development will not only benefit us but I believe it will help us contribute to building a better Philippines” said Nolasco.
PMTLAI (Philippine Multimodal Transport and Logistics Association Inc.) was established on October 10, 2017 after majority of the members of the Aircargo Forwarders of the Philippines Inc. (AFPI) and the Philippine International Seafreight Forwarders Association (PISFA) decided to unite and build a stronger organization to represent the freight forwarding and logistics industry in the Philippines.
PMTLAI shall be the catalyst and prime mover for professional excellence and global competitiveness of the Philippine transport and logistics industry. It enables its members to provide world-class service by providing various avenues for knowledge sharing, intensifying collaboration with regulators and other industry stakeholders and initiating or supporting advocacies that will help contribute to the uplifting of the Philippine transport and logistics industry and the communities in which it operates.
