By Damian Brett

David Stroud - BIFA

UK freight forwarder association BIFA has appointed David Stroud as its policy and compliance adviser with responsibility for logistics issues relating to airfreight, security and sustainable logistics.

BIFA said Stroud is a highly experienced industry professional and has held senior management roles at DHL Global Forwarding, Tigers Global Logistics and NNR Global Logistics. Much of his career has involved airfreight and aviation security issues.

In Stroud’s new position at BIFA, he will replace Mike Jones, who is taking on the responsibilities of Colin Young, BIFA’s regional consultant for London West and South West, who retired earlier this year.

Stroud will be working alongside Robert Windsor, executive director, and Pawal Jarza, policy and compliance advisor (Customs matters), in BIFA’s Policy and Compliance department. He also becomes the manager of BIFA’s Air Policy Group.

BIFA director general Robert Keen said: “We welcome David and are sure that his experience working for some of the world’s leading freight forwarding and logistics companies over the last 30 years 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.”
