BIFA said that Packwood, managing director of Geodis UK, has a deep understanding of both the operational and strategic aspects of the freight industry, and his comprehensive knowledge of international trade and logistics will strengthen BIFA’s efforts to support its members through advocacy, training, and industry leadership.

Steve Parker, chairman of BIFA, stated: “We are thrilled to welcome Chris, Denise and Ian to our board of directors. Their extensive experience and leadership in the freight forwarding industry will be instrumental in guiding BIFA’s strategic direction and supporting our mission to represent and promote the interests of UK freight forwarders. Their appointments come at a pivotal time as we continue to navigate the challenges and opportunities presented by the global trade environment.”
