The British International Freight Association (BIFA) has confirmed the appointment of David Stroud as its policy and compliance adviser with responsibility for logistics issues relating to air freight, security and sustainable logistics.
Stroud comes to BIFA with substantial industry experience and has held senior management roles with DHL Global Forwarding, Tigers Global Logistics and NNR Global Logistics. Much of his career has involved air freight and aviation security issues.
In his new position at BIFA, he will be replacing Mike Jones, who is taking on the responsibilities of Colin Young, BIFA’s regional consultant for London West and South West, who retired earlier this year.
Stroud will be working alongside Robert Windsor, executive director and Pawal Jarza, policy & compliance advisor (Customs matters) in BIFA’s Policy & Compliance department. He also becomes the manager of BIFA’s Air Policy Group.
BIFA director general Robert Keen says: “We welcome David and are sure that his experience working for some of the world’s leading freight forwarding and logistics companies over the last 30 years will help our policy and compliance department to fulfil its role of providing effective representation and support for BIFA members within the broader context of the UK and international freight services industry.”
