About Specialist Freight Networks (SFN)

Based in London, Specialist Freight Networks' Founder, Kelly Bunyan, provides SFN Members with access to 255+ professional Freight Forwarders in 155+ countries. Being ISO 9001 Certified (No: 198345), SFN leads by example; all Members are striving for excellence in all aspects of their operations. ‚Äč

Specialist Freight Networks connects 12,000+ employees, in 800+ branch offices, covering 2400+ air and sea ports.

Not only would SFN Membership provide you with the opportunity to receive new business from your newfound partners, but also it would help you to convert more sales as your potential clients would have full confidence in your company, knowing that you are internationally connected. At SFN you would have access to dedicated, expert partners to finish the job you start, as professionally and competently as if you had your own office in the destination country - your clients will be impressed by this.

Even though a high volume of cargo is exchanged within SFN, the financials within the network are super strong. Due to the sense of family within SFN, coupled with Kelly Bunyan's strong leadership, since SFN was formed, 99%-100% of payments have been honoured, year on year. This statistic is exceptional and certainly not achievable outside the safe confines of SFN. A payment protection scheme is therefore simply just not required. In fact, SFN Members chose not to opt into a scheme, as they do not feel it is needed.

Acknowledging the advantages of both Exclusive and Non-Exclusive Networks, SFN provides both types of associations in a specialised format, under the same global SFN brand. In total, 5 individual Networks reside under the same SFN umbrella.

4 Exclusive Networks: Air, Sea, Project and General (strong in Air, Sea, and Project).

1 Non-Exclusive Network: Members' niche markets are listed: Air, Sea, Road, Project, Perishable, Hazardous, Personal, Time Sensitive, Live Animals.

Kelly Bunyan graduated from Southampton University with a degree in Business Economics and French. Kelly spent a total of 3 years in France and Germany, teaching Business English to professionals. Upon her return to the UK, Kelly joined an international computer software company in London. This position gained her much experience in marketing, networking and conference organising. 

A Black Belt in Kung Fu and Kickboxing, Kelly left the company to start her own business in 2000, which soon became the largest Martial Arts Academy in London. 16+ years later, Kelly is still teaching weekly classes to the elite students in her school. In 2004, Kelly moved into freight networking, combining her past experience and knowledge to create World Freight Network.

Kelly then expanded her network management to Specialist Freight Networks in 2011. SFN is a unique concept, launched to provide an alternative networking solution for freight forwarders. 

From a personal viewpoint, Kelly feels that with all the war and intolerance in the world, it is a great thing to be able to gather so many different countries and cultures together, for mutual gain.
