UK forwarder association Bifa has appointed Carri Marais as trainer – freight and customs procedures as it looks to continue expanding its training team.

Marais joins from DB Schenker Road Freight and has more than 25 years of experience in freight forwarding and logistics, including the management of import and export consignments across all modes, team building and training, internal sales, customs, customer service and key account management, as well as documentation.

Bifa executive director Carl Hobbis said: “With the appointment of another full-time trainer to our training delivery team, we now have a four-strong team based in Yorkshire, Manchester, Birmingham and Heathrow, which will enable us to deliver more training days for our members during 2023.”

BIFA director general Steve Parker added: “Brexit, the switch from CHIEF to CDS, and the development of a relevant international freight forwarding specialist apprenticeship, are among a number of issues that have led to a significant increase in the demand for our training programmes.

“Carri’s appointment strengthens the team and helps to ensure that we have the resources in place to meet demand.”
