TT Club continues support for FIATA's training initiative

July 28 - FIATA has revealed the names of the four regional finalists who will be competing for the title of Young International Freight Forwarder of the Year 2010 and a prize that includes hands-on training experience at one of TT Club's regional centres

Commending the quality of their dissertations as "extremely high", FIATA has announced the regional finalists as: Region Africa/Middle East - Rion Henning, South Africa; Region Americas - Claudia Ramirez, Canada; Region Asia/Pacific - Ng Kah Yong, Singapore; Region Europe - Philipp Kueffner, Germany.

Now in its twelfth year, the Young International Freight Forwarder of the Year Award is recognition by FIATA and the participating sponsors of the need to develop quality in the industry and to reward young talent with valuable training opportunities. TT Club has been a sponsor of the award since its inception and firmly believes in the importance of individual training and development within the industry.

The award consists of practical and academic training, including a week based at one of the TT Club's regional centres in London, Hong Kong or New Jersey, attendance at the "Insight into Transport Law and Insurance" course in London and a week-long course at an IATA training centre.

TT Club's European regional director, Andrew Kemp commented: "TT Club is proud to continue partnering FIATA in supporting this training initiative through sponsorship of the YIFFY Awards. The Club is well known around the world for the emphasis it places not only on efficient claims handling but also on sound loss prevention advice. We hope that the international winners who come to us for training will return to their employers with a greater understanding of the nature of risk in the supply chain and the importance of managing it effectively."
