In order to keep up with member demand – and with other opportunities on the horizon – BIFA has expanded its training team with the appointment of Graeme Wilkinson.

Graeme, who has over 20 years of freight forwarding experience, joins from Pantos Logistics. Prior to this, he worked for C.H. Robinson, MIQ Logistics and Emery Worldwide.

Carl Hobbis, training development manager, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Graeme to our team. His wide range of industry knowledge, covering many aspects of forwarding and logistics is perfect for the delivery of our freight and customs training.

He adds: “With Brexit and the development of a relevant freight forwarding apprenticeship in the pipeline, we expect the need for training to increase and we plan to add to the team early in the New Year.”

Robert Keen, director general of the British International Freight Association added: “It is an exciting time to be joining BIFA, while we push to improve the quality of education and skills development, and cultivate the next generation of freight forwarders.”
