Our Story

In 1996, United World Telecom (UWT) started as a callback service provider in Florida, US. With a growing customer portfolio and increased demand, UWT transitioned to being a call forwarding service provider over time. We then established Global Call Forwarding (GCF) in 2007 as a distinctive brand dedicated to providing international toll free and local numbers.

Since then, we have grown with global and diverse teams, thousands of multinational customers, and expanded our operations to the APAC region with a regional office and dedicated staff located in Bangkok, Thailand and a new POP in Singapore. With over twenty-seven plus years of experience, we have close partnerships with reputable service providers around the globe. This ensures we provide the highest service quality and reliability to our customers.

Now, Global Call Forwarding is a leading provider of local and international toll free numbers. With our extensive global network of partners, we have access to the largest inventory of local and toll free numbers in the world. This lets us provide businesses with phone numbers that are unique to a specific country or region so they can establish a local presence anywhere in the world.


“We are geared to grow as we keep investing in technology and infrastructure to ensure that our services remain reliable and easy to use, which has helped us to establish a strong reputation in the industry”
Beny Mouen, Regional Sales Manager - APAC

What We Can Do For You

We successfully serve thousands of businesses around the world, from small enterprises to large multinational corporations. We do so by providing feature-packed local and global phone numbers, utilizing an advanced global network.

In today’s competitive global marketplace, communication between businesses and customers is essential. Without a local point of contact, businesses are at a clear disadvantage, costing sales and growth. That’s where Global Call Forwarding comes in.

While we specialize in serving companies with an international footprint, we dedicate the same amount of time to small businesses as we do to our corporate clients. We value all of our customers and provide the best support possible for each one, regardless of their size.
