Jones in at BIFA
23 / 03 / 2015
The UK’s British International Freight Association (BIFA) has confirmed the appointment of Mike Jones as policy and compliance advisor to look after issues related to air, aviation security and dangerous goods.
Jones started his career in freight forwarding in 1977 when he joined Pandair Freight Ltd as a break bulk & transhipment clerk and undertook a number of managerial roles following the acquisition of Pandair by Air Express International.
In 1998, he joined Hitachi’s transport division where his role as logistics manager included the management of warehousing and distribution throughout the UK, followed by a promotion to general manager, which allowed him to develop a more strategic role working as part of the European steering group.
In 2011, he joined London Underground as logistics manager for Track & Signals. In preparation for the London 2012 Olympic Games, he rationalised the storage locations for track materials and set up critical spares stores for signalling equipment to minimise delays.
In his new position at BIFA, he will be working alongside Robert Windsor, the manager of BIFA’s Policy and Compliance Department.
BIFA director general, Robert Keen said: "We welcome Mike and are sure that his experience on both sides of the supply chain will help our policy and compliance department to fulfil its role of providing effective representation and support for BIFA members within the broader context of the UK and international freight services industry."
