YIFFY: celebrating young professionals

The 21st Young International Freight Forwarder of the Year (YIFFY) Award – supported by the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) and TT Club – was announced at the FIATA World Congress, held in Cape Town on October 1-5.

From left to right: YIFFY award winner Evgeniya Khokhlova; FIATA president Babar Badat; Thomas Sim, chairman of FIATA’s advisory body vocational training; and TT Club’s Michael Yarwood, chairman of the award steering committee.

This year’s award went to Evgeniya Khokhlova, who represents the Russian Association of Forwarding and Logistic Organizations and is a specialist in project logistics at SVH-Freight.

Khokhlova beat three other regional finalists selected from entrants around the world. Her prize is two one-week training sessions with insurance and risk management service provider TT Club at one of its regional headquarters in London, New Jersey or Hong Kong.

The other three finalists were: Enos Chapara, tracking and documentation agent at Bollore Transport and Logistics Zimbabwe, representing Shipping and Forwarding Agents’ Association of Zimbabwe; Rachel van Harmelen, business unit sales manager at DSV Panalpina in Canada, representing the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association; and Phillip Burgess, South Island manager at Burnard International in New Zealand, representing Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Federation of New Zealand.

The TT Club-sponsored 2020 YIFFY Award will be presented at next year’s FIATA Congress in Busan, South Korea on October 19-24.

YIFFY candidates must submit a 6,000-word dissertation outlining the pertinent details of an import and export shipment from their native country. The four finalists will then present their dissertations in person to a panel of judges at the Congress, where the overall winner will be selected.
