Young Logistics Professionals Award
For over twenty years, FIATA and TT Club have been providing valuable training opportunities for the young rising stars of the industry by organising a yearly contest. Formerly known as the Young International Freight Forwarder of the Year Award (YIFFYA), the competition has now become the Young Logistics Professionals Award (YLP Award) – to show that all the young bright minds of the field, whichever their specialisation, are welcome to participate.
The competition demonstrates the recognition by FIATA and TT Club of the need to develop skilled human resources in the freight forwarding and logistics sector and to acknowledge young talents.
This award is a unique experience for young professionals, allowing them to gain more experience in the industry and connections throughout the competition, as well as great prizes.
FIATA Association Members can themselves benefit from encouraging their YLPs to participate in this prestigious international contest, where they can improve their skillset, develop their network and gain excellent experience on a global platform.
The deadline for FIATA Associations to nominate your candidates/be nominated is 15 February 2024!
