The Belgian Freight
Forwarding Association


A large number of contracts are concluded, general terms and conditions exchanged, powers of attorney and mandates signed between forwarders/customs representatives and their customers. Concluding and managing such contracts is a time-consuming and expensive process. Furthermore, the question remains whether these contracts always have to be signed on paper to be legally binding. A digital signature needs to meet specific terms and conditions to be legally valid. For this reason FORWARD Belgium has developed an application to significantly simplify contract management.

FORWARD Belgium allows access to its standard agreements and proxies with this app:

  • general Belgian forwarding conditions
  • standard forwarding agreement
  • fiscal representation contracts
  • mandates/customs representation contracts
  • dual-use declaration
  • etc.

You also have the possibility to upload your own contracts and have them digitally signed by your customers.

Before your client can digitally sign the contracts, he needs to indicate via the system which persons may legally represent the company. Once this has been done, you can make all your agreements available via the application to your client, who in turn signs them digitally.

Thanks to the application, you maintain a constant overview of which contracts have been legally signed, by whom and when.


Simple, and saves time and money.

No more sending of agreements, mandates and general terms and conditions on paper.

Certainty about legal validity of the digital signature.

No more administrative hassle thanks to simple archiving in the application.
