BIFA – the British International Freight Association – will be exhibiting in full force at the forthcoming Multimodal 2016 from May 10-12, 2016, and is looking forward to meeting existing and prospective Members, as well as other stakeholders, as it delivers its messages to the wider UK freight industry.
BIFA uses Multimodal 2016 as its prime annual event to showcase the Association’s offerings to logistics visitors from all over the country.
The trade association for UK forwarders will be exhibiting on stand 1250, and all of the senior management, as well as BIFA’s four Regional Consultants will be on hand to meet visitors and provide any advice or information they may require.
BIFA Director General, Robert Keen says that among a number of seminar and workshop sessions being staged to keep visitors up-to-date with the latest logistics trends will be handson learning opportunities on new legislation such as the EU Customs Code and the Home Office Haulier Accreditation Scheme.
Panel discussions will cover topics including the impact of mega ships, e-freight challenges, the future of rail freight and the future of airports in the UK.
BIFA’s Policy & Compliance Manager, Robert Windsor, will form part of a panel of five experts in the discussion entitled ‘The EU’s new Union Customs Code explained’.
This one-hour workshop session will be held on Wednesday May 11th, starting at 12:00.
As Multimodal approaches, BIFA reports that it is in good shape financially and operationally with significant momentum, a membership of over 1,500 companies, and a clear strategy that leaves it well positioned to continue to provide effective representation and support for the UK and international freight services industry.
Keen adds: “The UK freight industry continues to be presented with a broad spectrum of challenges related to developments at home and abroad, leaving UK freight forwarders and logistics companies with plenty on which to focus their attention.”
