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 organizing 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 specialization, 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.
