British International Freight Association

BIFA has announced the election of Denise Hill, Ian Mallon and Chris Packwood as new directors to its Board of Directors.

In April last year, Denise Hill joined BIFA’s secretariat as member engagement director to oversee and develop BIFA’s interaction with its membership in regards to the services it provides and how they are delivered.

With her additional election to the BIFA Board, her background in commercial and relationship management is thought to assist with its governance of the trade association’s work.

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

“Under his leadership, Neon Freight has grown into a leading provider of international shipping solutions, known for its innovative approach and customer-centric services.

“Ian’s expertise in global logistics, coupled with his strategic vision, will be invaluable in helping BIFA’s Board to help the trade association navigate the complexities of the modern freight industry and advocate for its members’ interests.

Chris 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, Chris has been instrumental in driving Geodis UK’s growth and enhancing its service offerings.

“His comprehensive knowledge of international trade and logistics will strengthen BIFA’s efforts to support its members through advocacy, training, and industry leadership.

Steve Parker, Chairman of BIFA, stated, “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.

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