01 / Financial Protection Plan
Member to member protection of up to USD 50,000 within the network and USD 25,000 for cross-network transactions with WCA members. Financial reimbursement is awarded only after our professional staff has taken every possible action to collect directly on your behalf. Note that due to conditions in some countries, as well as US / UN / EU imposed sanctions on others, the Gold Medallion Financial Protection Plan is not available in some countries.
02 / Freight Services Liability Insurance
GAA’s Freight Services Liability (FSL) insurance is a tailored product designed to protect members’ businesses as well as their agent and clients. FSL is purchased by freight forwarders and incorporates both Errors & Omissions (E&O) and legal liability coverage. As the world’s first such online system, GAA’s FSL is far cheaper than any other comparable insurance policies and boasts as much as twice the coverage at half the premium cost.

Partner Pay is accessible through your GAA membership; a benefit that will save you thousands a year managing foreign account settlements.

04 / Cargo Insurance
GAA is proud to offer cost-effective cargo insurance specifically designed to fit the unique needs of its member companies. Cargo insurance is designed to cover the value of your customer’s cargo and, as a result protects you, the freight forwarder, from potential cargo claims.

05 / Professional Management
The Global Affinity Alliance is managed, supported and backed by professional, paid staff members who monitor and respond to member needs. Some associations are led by members on a volunteer basis and are only as good as the amount of free time their leaders can contribute. Member inquiries, requests and concerns are of priority to GAA’s staff of professionals. Staff members are paid to provide service and support as their first job, not their last. Contact us.
06 / Conferences
GAA hosts one annual meeting and thanks to the WCA’s One-on-One scheduler, in-conference meetings can be arranged weeks or months in advance. GAA members, who attend the annual meeting, are given the opportunity to attend the following year’s WCA meetings and are encouraged to schedule appointments with conference attendees for even greater exposure to partners and opportunities.
