May 18, 2017: UK trade group British International Freight Association (BIFA) has confirmed the appointment of 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, 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.
