AUTF is the French Shippers' Council. It represents the freight transport interests of industrial and commercial businesses. Transport and logistics are complex sectors that are undergoing major changes and are subject to strict regulations. They are strategic challenges in terms of service, organisation and costs for companies.

AUTF provides its members with information and advice to help them best understand trends in this sector. Its sphere of action includes all means of transport and all related activities (legal affairs, customs, international trade, etc.).



Created in 2017 by the air cargo community at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, ACFA is a new air cargo association bringing together private companies, government departments, an airport operator, and professional organisations and associations. It is the successor to the Comité Interprofessionnel du Fret (CIF).

The main objectives of this association are:

• To promote and represent the air cargo industry as a whole, as well as its airports, operators and business lines, including on an international level.
• To work together on implementing technical improvements to air cargo services and tools.
• To publicise the value added contributed by all players in the air cargo supply chain.
• To act in a collegial and coordinated manner on a domestic, European and international level.

The roadmap developed by ACFA members will include topics such
as digital technology, the pharmaceutical industry, and the physical
handling of goods.


Over the past number of years, the customs service has made strong progress in the facilitation of trade and the simplification of customs clearance operations. 
All of the airport customs services strive daily to ensure the free flow of international goods whilst ensuring that satisfactory checks are carried out to protect both citizens and EU and national financial interests.

At a local level, the Roissy Freight and Orly economic divisions offer support to operators with regard to regulatory guidance but they also provide advice on the entry and exit formalities with which the latter must comply.

At Roissy-Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports, the customs service is fully integrated within the logistics chain thanks to the special relationships that it has cultivated with the operators. The customs service organises (via the economic divisions) periodic meetings with international parties as an opportunity to present customs-related information specifically tailored to their requirements and as such, to help boost their market competitiveness. 
Today, the customs service continues to improve its relationships with businesses; it has recently been granted European "Authorised Economic Operator" (AEO) status and has also been involved in the establishment of the CIN (Cargo Information Network) and of the "e-freight" project (digitalisation of air transport documents).
