Event description

Description

PLEASE NOTE: This event is for employees of BIFA Members only.

Have you any idea how much organised crime takes place within our sector? Probably not.

Then why not come along to the next BIFA Young Forwarder Network event in the north west, where our guest speakers will be the team from Operation PANDORA (Joint Borders Intelligence Team), who are working with the shipping and forwarding trade to combat this.

They will give a fascinating and interactive insight to this huge issue with input from Border Force, Counter Terrorism Police, HMRC and the National Crime Agency. You will see real-life scenarios of criminality at the border, including terrorism, drugs, firearms, smuggled cigarettes and tobacco and organised immigration crime. You will also learn how you can protect the reputation of your business and help safeguard the public, by raising your awareness.

At the event, the local organising committee will also give an update of what they have planned, other YFN activity and you will also be able to give ideas and opinions for future events. As well as some networking, yourself!
