FIATA announces Young Forwarder finalists

[ July 28, 2015   //   ]

Four regional finalists have been selected for the Young International Freight Forwarder of the Year Award, FIATA’s training and development award, sponsored by insurers, the TT Club. They are: Mrs Jennifer Taylor, England, Europe region; Mrs Daniella Smal, Zambia, Africa/Middle East; Mr Kaya Karakaya, Canada, Americas; and Mr Madi Kassebekov, Kazakhstan, Asia/Pacific.

The entries this year were of a particularly high standard and displayed a wide range of dissertation topics. The work of the entrants admirably demonstrated the complexity of processes carried out within the global supply chain and the logistics skills required to serve it. The diverse subjects covered by the dissertations of this year’s entrants included the transport of Liquid Argon, Copper Cathodes, High Fashion Garments and Air Separation Plant.

The regional finalists will travel to this year’s FIATA’s World Conference in Taipei, Taiwan on 8-13 September to present their dissertations to the judging panel, from which the International Award winner will be selected and presented with the award during the conference.
