Denise Hill, Ian Mallon, and Chris Packwood have all joined the British International Freight Association’s (BIFA) board of directors.

BIFA states that their appointments underscore the association’s dedication to strengthening its leadership team with seasoned professionals who can drive forward its goals and objectives.

Steve Parker, chairman of BIFA, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Chris, Denise and Ian to our board of directors. Their extensive experience and leadership in the freight forwarding industry will be instrumental in guiding BIFA’s strategic direction and supporting our mission to represent and promote the interests of UK freight forwarders.

Hill joined BIFA’s secretariat as member engagement director in April 2023 to oversee and develop BIFA’s interaction with its membership in regard to the services it provides and how they are delivered.

With her additional election to the BIFA board, Hill’s strong background in commercial and relationship management will assist with the governance of the trade association’s work.

Mallon, managing director of Neon Freight, joins the BIFA board with over two decades of experience in the logistics and freight forwarding industry.

Under Mallon’s leadership, Neon Freight has grown into a leading provider of international shipping solutions. BIFA says that Mallon’s global logistics expertise, coupled with his strategic vision, will be invaluable in helping the association’s board navigate the complexities of the modern freight industry and advocate for its members’ interests.

Packwood, managing director of Geodis UK, brings a distinguished career in freight management and supply chain solutions to the BIFA board.

With a deep understanding of both the operational and strategic aspects of the freight industry, Packwood has been instrumental in driving Geodis UK’s growth and enhancing its service offerings.

BIFA says that Packwood’s comprehensive knowledge of international trade and logistics will strengthen the association’s efforts to support its members through advocacy, training, and industry leadership.

Parker added: “Their appointments come at a pivotal time as we continue to navigate the challenges and opportunities presented by the global trade environment.”
