UKWA & BIFA to co-host Brexit briefing meeting

May 12, 2017

Leading associations for the logistics industry, UKWA and BIFA (British International Freight Association) will be jointly hosting a special meeting for members in the London Heathrow area, to provide an update on a range of topical issues, including a briefing on preparing for Brexit.

Those attending will benefit from specialist advice on how best to prepare for customs and excise procedures post Brexit from specialist speakers Alan Powell, UKWA’s independent expert on customs and Robert Windsor, Executive Director of BIFA.

Other presentations will include advice on Risk Management, an update on skills and apprenticeships, as well as the latest property outlook and insights into increasing profitability in a changing world.

Members will also learn from UKWA CEO Peter Ward and BIFA Director General Robert Keen how their feedback and input can help shape the future logistics landscape as the two industry associations prepare to advise the government on the best way forward.

Commenting on the event, Peter Ward said, The two leading associations for our industry are pooling resources and sharing expertise to ensure our membership bases benefit from as much information and support as possible during this challenging time. This initial event is aimed at members in the London Heathrow area, but our intention is to plan a nationwide road show to ensure all members have opportunity to hear the latest advice on how to prepare their business for Brexit and also how best to leverage their trade association to influence future government policy.

Date: Thursday 18 May – 3.30pm- 6.30pm
