With the increase in the trade volume between countries, the market of freight forwarders industry has been gradually growing. However, not only in Korea, with the number of global freight forwarders increasing, global competition has been increasingly fierce, and domestic freight forwarders are facing enormous challenges, therefore, the relevant policy sectors have carried out a series of supportive policies, while academics have conducted various researches. But most of them have focused on the current situation or the business model, and they could not get feedback on government support policies from enterprises. Using the AHP analysis, this study decided the priority of the government`s ongoing supporting policies, compared the cognitive differences among of the companies of 3 different sizes, which was further verified using t-test. Then we compared the government support policies with the actual expectations of the companies to see if they matched on the basis of the previous results of this study, in order to help to strengthen the competitiveness of our freight forwarding industry.
