Young Forwarder award goes to Australia’s Shanon Gould

Shanon Gould from Australia won this year’s Young International Freight Forwarder of the Year (YIFFY) Award, presented at the FIATA annual congress in Dublin.
Other regional finalists were: Lorraine Zhou, Zimbabwe (Africa/Middle East), Evgeny Kapustin, Canada (Americas) and Kostiantyn Hapii, Ukraine (Europe).
Award sponsors the TT Club said the awards were of a high standard and drew from a wide range of dissertation topics. Among the diverse subjects covered by the dissertations were the shipping of cotton bales; the challenges of transporting tyres and turbines and the solution to moving a 40’ tall fire breathing dinosaur robot across continents.
Presenting the award, TT Club claims manager Mike Yarwood said: “Congratulations to all four finalists for their hard work and excellent presentations and especially, of course to our winner Shanon.”
He added: “We are pleased to be continuing our sponsorship of this unique award, with the finals to be held at the FIATA Congress next October in Kuala Lumpur. Once again, we hope that the competition will prove to be successful in terms of attracting outstanding candidates from across the globe to improve even on the record entry of twenty-seven this year.”
