BIFA names policy and compliance officer as Brexit nears

The British International Freight Association (BIFA) has appointed Pawel Jarza as policy and compliance advisor with responsibility for issues concerning Customs.

This role will involve working with the trade, HMRC and other bodies to ensure customs processes and policies represent the best solutions for both trade and regulators particularly as new routines and solutions emerge during the negotiations and preparations for the UK to leave the European Union.

Jarza started his career in the industry 12 years ago when he joined Yamato Transport Europe.  After that he moved to Arcadia and Landmark Global UK Ltd, gaining experience in a traditional forwarding environment, as well as specialising in e-commerce logistics.

He has always specialised in the Customs environment and been involved in a number of Customs-related projects and assisting employers to obtain the appropriate authorisations.

In his new position at BIFA, he will be working alongside Robert Windsor, executive director and Mike Jones, policy & compliance advisor (air matters) in BIFA’s Policy & Compliance Department. He will become a member of BIFA’s Customs Policy Group.

BIFA director general, Robert Keen (pictured above) says: “We welcome Pawel and are sure that his experience in the Customs environment will help our Policy & Compliance Department to fulfil its role of providing effective representation and support for BIFA members within the broader context of the UK and international freight services industry.”
