Cargo Forum Schweiz

In order to ensure the sustainable representation of industry interests to the political committees at all levels, 6 freight transport-neutral associations and organisations in Switzerland have joined in 1999 forces to create the Cargo Forum Schweiz (CFS). These associations are the Swiss Shippers’ Council (SSC) in Lausanne, the GS1 (formerly SGL, ECR, EAN) in Bern, the Swiss Freight Forwarding and Logistics Association SPEDLOGSWISS (formerly the SSV) in Basel, the Swiss Association of Inland Navigation and Ports (SVS) in Basel, the Association of Swiss Rail Tracks and Private Freight Wagon Owners (VAP) in Uitikon and the Basel Chamber of Commerce (HKBB) in Basel.
