The United Arab Emirates will have a representative at the prestigious Young International Freight Forwarders Award (YIFFA), 2011. 24-year-old Niranjan Venkatesh, who was also recently awarded by the National Association Freight & Logistics (NAFL) for his winning dissertation on the local freight forwarding industry, has been selected from amongst other contenders in the Africa/Middle East region.
The NAFL submitted his dissertation to the organisers of YIFFA (FIATA, TT Club and IATA), wherein consequently it was chosen as the best piece.
“I am honoured and proud of this moment in my life. I would like to express my gratitude to the NAFL for giving young logistics practitioners like myself this opportunity. Logistics is my chosen profession and passion, the NAFL and my employers at Transworld Logistics have been a huge part in this development of my career,” Niranjan commented.
NAFL president Issa Baluch released a statement on behalf of the association, saying: “This is good news for the local freight forwarding industry. To have the UAE represented at the YIFFA is a big achievement not only for Niranjan, but also for the NAFL.”
