We at Jordon freight would like to congratulate our dear friend Mr Robert Keen on his new appointment as British International Freight Association (BIFA) director general.

Robert, who started at BIFA in 1999 (the year we were formed incidentally) have always been extremely helpful to guide us through the many legislative changes over the years.

BIFA is the representative body for the international freight industry. BIFA promotes good practice and total quality in the provision of freight services by their members, encouraging us to observe the highest standards of professional competence.

We wish Robert well and look forward to seeing him lead the trade association onto great things within the global economy on behalf of its members.
