12 / 09 / 2017

UK freight forwarder association BIFA has expanded its training team with the appointment of Graeme Wilkinson in order to keep up with member demand.

Wilkinson has more than 20 years of freight forwarding experience and joins from Pantos Logistics. He has also worked for C.H. Robinson, MIQ Logistics and Emery Worldwide.

Carl Hobbis, BIFA 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.

“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, BIFA director general, 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.”
