Andrew Melton has been appointed as a regional representative of BIFA, the British International Freight Association.
Melton will cover the Midlands and North Region, and joins several other regional representatives who support and engage with BIFA members across the UK.
Melton has previously served as BIFA’s non-executive director for 14 years, was its chair from 2009 to 2011, and has almost 50 years of experience of the freight and logistics industry across all modes.
Steve Parker, director general of BIFA, said: “We have made clear our strategy to further raise BIFA’s profile with our members as well as enhance engagement with them.
“Andrew’s appointment will help strengthen and support our engagement with our members in the Midlands and North, ensure that their views reach all areas of the association, and are reflected in the work undertaken by the secretariat.
“His wide-ranging experience and senior roles in successful freight forwarding companies, coupled with long-term involvement in BIFA’s governance, leaves me confident that he has the ability to engage with our members in his region to get a better understanding of how BIFA can fulfil their requirements.”
Melton joins BIFA from Ligentia UK Ltd where he was UK compliance manager.
