UK forwarder group the British International Freight Association (BIFA) has announced that Susanne Oud has joined its Board of Directors, replacing Roy Baker who has stepped down having been on the trade association’s Board since 2005.

Oud is operations director EMEA – verticals at BIFA member company, OIA Global, and is based at the company’s head office in London.

She emigrated from Australia to the UK in 1998 and joined Bellville Rodair, before it was acquired by OIA Global in 2013.
