About APT

Benefits of membership

Freight forwarders/ logistics firms which belong to APT have the legal right to issue the 'FIATA Multimodal Transport Bill of Lading'. It stands out as a transferable document which can be negotiated in banks throughout the world, an asset to import and export companies of Mauritius. The responsibility of printing and distributing the 'FIATA Multimodal Transport Bill of Lading' rests upon the 'Association Professionnelle des Transitaires' (Association of Professional Freight Forwarders) in Mauritius.
APT ensures through the dissemination of information that its members are kept abreast of the latest developments in the industry in a growing number of fields (electronic technology, changes in the import or export rules & regulations in different countries, cargo security controls...) Changes in rules and regulations are constant. We constantly update our members in a timely manner by scanning information from national and international sources.
APT sets up regular training courses not only targeting new recruits but also, to enable those already in employment to further their skills and career opportunities. Courses in management, dangerous goods, and other specialist subjects are run throughout the year.
