The British International Freight Association (BIFA) – www.bifa.org –  welcomes the appointment of BIFA Board Member Steve Parker as President  of CLECAT, the Brussels-based European Association for forwarding,  transport, logistics and customs services.

CLECAT’s membership consists of the majority of national freight  forwarder associations throughout the EU and its prime purpose is to guard and promote the freight forwarding sector’s interests at European  level.
Mr Parker takes over from Mark Huybrechts.

Head of Customs & Brokerage - Europe at DHL UK, Parker can boast over 35  years of experience in the freight forwarding and logistics arena.  A  previous Chairman of BIFA, he currently serves on the UK trade 
association’s Board of Directors.

Parker was BIFA National Chairman from 2011 to 2013. He is also Chairman 
of the BIFA Customs Policy Group and Chairman of the CLECAT Customs and 
Indirect Taxation Institute.

BIFA Director General, Robert Keen said: “Steve’s appointment is 
important as it helps to strengthen BIFA’s influence and involvement in 
this important organisation and facilitate contacts with significant 
stakeholders, for the benefit of our members.

“Marc had in fact succeeded Clive Broadley who is also a past BIFA 
National Chairman. For BIFA to see two senior officials elected 
President in such a short time is a great reflection of the high status 
of the trade association among our European Union forwarder colleagues.

“BIFA is already well represented on Clecat’s Board and in addition to 
Steve's chairmanship of the organisation’s Customs and Indirect Taxation 
Institute; fellow BIFA Director Mark Bromley heads its Road Logistics 
Institute and I am Vice-Chairman of its Maritime Logistics Institute.”
