THE British International Freight Association (BIFA) is celebrating the first anniversary of its Young Forwarders Network (YFN) that organises events run by young forwarders in regional networks in a bid to help young talent and BIFA members to enhance their knowledge and skills in a structured, social environment.

Since its establishment, six regional networks have been formed and 20 YFN events have been held, reported London's Air Cargo News.



According to BIFA's training development manager Carl Hobbis, some 400 young individuals have attended the networking events, 'which gives a clear demonstration of their perceived value by the younger generation in the freight forwarding and logistics sector.'



Said Mr Hobbis: 'When the YFN was launched, we said we thought it would prove to be a major step forward for the industry in developing its future freight forwarding ambassadors and leaders.



'The young people who are joining the various regional groups are improving their knowledge of the sector, trends within it, as well as building their skill sets and learning from others,' said Mr Hobbis.
