Young Forwarder Network - Anglia (Nov 2019)
Anglia YFN Launch with Guest Speakers - Combatting organised Crime in Shipping and Forwarding.
BIFA are going to officially launch the Anglia region of the BIFA Young Forwarder Network (YFN).
The event is free and is open to all; employers, apprentices, graduates or those new to the industry, lunch and refreshments will be provided on arrival. Please let us know any dietary requirements. Registration is a must, via the link below.
The YFN has been set-up to provide young members, or those new to the industry, with a platform to network with their peers, learn from industry professionals and boost their continuous professional development. During this event, we will provide more details about the network and give members the opportunity to discuss how they would like the Anglia regional group to work moving forward.
We are also going to have guest speakers from Operation Pandora who are a Joint Borders Intelligence Team, who are working together with trade to combat crime in shipping and Forwarding.
They will give a fascinating and very interactive insight to this huge issue with input from Border Force, Counter Terrorism Police, HMRC and the National Crime Agency. You will see real-life scenarios of criminality at the border, including terrorism, drugs, firearms, smuggled cigarettes and tobacco and organised immigration crime. You will also learn how you can protect the reputation of your business and help safeguard the public, by raising your awareness.
