British International Freight Association names policy and compliance officer for Customs issues
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.
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.
Robert Keen, director general, BIFA, said, “We welcome Pawel and are sure that his experience in the Customs environment will help our Policy & Compliance Department to fulfill its role of providing effective representation and support for BIFA members within the broader context of the UK and international freight services industry.”
