Less than year after it was established, PT. FPS Movers, an affiliate of the Famous Pacific Shipping (FPS) Group (www.fps-group.net) has been accepted as a member of the Household Goods Forwarders Association of America, Inc (HHGFAA).
Commenting on the development, Iskandar Zulkarnain, Chairman of PT. FPS Indonesia said: “We launched this subsidiary in Indonesia barely a year ago as a business dedicated to household removal and personal relocation services. Economic development in Asia has seen a dramatic increase in the number of expats relocating throughout the region, many of whom require such services.
“Acceptance into the membership of the HHGFAA is a proud moment for PT. FPS Movers and demonstrates that we work to the highest international standards. Customers can see at a stroke our commitment to the highest levels of operation helping to ensure that their moving and relocation will be as smooth and painless as possible.”
Based at the PT. FPS Indonesia headquarters in Jakarta, PT. FPS Movers provides a fully integrated package of relocation services, including pre-move surveys and advice, packing, storage and shipment. Also offered are personal services such as assistance with home and school searches, as well as orientation and familiarisation programmes in the destination country.
PT. FPS Movers became the first company within Famous Pacific Shipping’s global network to offer this niche cargo management service and is working with FIDI and FAIM accredited agents.
HHGFAA is a global association of forwarders and movers committed to providing customers with the highest level of service available. It is a grouping of auditing, forwarding, moving, and shipping companies. Worldwide membership exceeds 2,000 companies in more than 165 countries and territories.
Famous Pacific Shipping’s global network now includes 43 individual companies from 22 different nations worldwide, working together under the FPS banner. Whilst there are still a few gaps in the network, FPS offers global coverage and remains committed to recruiting additional members and adding to the portfolio of freight forwarding and cargo management services offered.
