Association of Freight Forwarders of Georgia

If you look up the word “NAVTE” in Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani’s dictionary 18th century, you will find out that it’s explained as “boat-man’s intermediary” that could be compared with its content to today’s forwarder company’s activity. That’s why during the establishment of our association (26thof June, 1997) e-mail address – afg@afg-navte.ge was chosen.

So, the first signs of forwarding activity existed in 18th century in Georgia that is today’s one of the main economic sector’s.
