[ October 13, 2017   //   ]

The 2017 Young International Freight Forwarder of the Year (YIFFY) Award was presented to Bradley Davis of Canada at the FIATA annual World Congress in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 10 October.

It was presented by Mike Yarwood of the awards sponsor, TT Club.

The other three regional finalists were: Tinasche Chiwanza (Zimbabwe – Africa/Middle East);

Nian Wan (China – Asia/Pacific); and Nina Brose (Germany – Europe).

Mike Yarwood praised the “highly professional and broad array of entries”, adding: “I would like to congratulate all four finalists for their polished presentations and especially, of course to our winner Bradley Davis.”

The judges stressed that the dissertations this year were of a particularly high standard. The diverse subjects covered by the dissertations included the transport of zoological animals, Olympic team equipment, agricultural chemicals, wine and raw tea, a clear example of the variety of challenges the industry is facing in providing crucial trade services.

Each year four regional finalists are selected and are invited to attend the FIATA World Congress, providing each finalist with invaluable learning and networking opportunities. In addition the overall winner of the award is invited to attend two, one week training sessions with the TT Club at one of their regional headquarters in London, New Jersey or Hong Kong.
