Jarza will be responsible for liaison with UK government departments such as HMRC and Border Force, as well as other relevant external stakeholders. He will work work closely with Igor Popovics, policy advisor Customs, and Robert Windsor, member services director policy and compliance. He has almost 20 years of experience in the logistics industry, mainly in Customs compliance-focused managerial roles.

The appointment comes at an important period in the management of the UK frontier post-Brexit with the ongoing roll-out of the Border Trade Operating Model and the Single Trade Window that, when fully operational, is designed to provide a gateway between businesses and UK border processes and systems. It will allow users to meet their import, export and transit obligations by submitting information once, and in one place, according to BIFA.
