Every year, FIATA organizes, and the TT Club sponsors, the Young International Freight Forwarder of the Year Award (YIFFYA) which, since 2022, is called the Young Logistics Professional Award, to encourage and nurture passion of the young talents representing all sectors of the industry, whatever their specialization.

In line with FIATA’s guidelines, every year CIFFA puts forward the best Canadian candidate to compete for this award.

The competition advances in three stages:

Stage 1: the Canadian round – interested applicants:

After meeting all the above requirements, the applicants will receive the topic for a dissertation and instructions for its completion. The deadline for submitting the completed dissertation is mid-January. CIFFA’s panel of subject-matter experts mark all submitted dissertations and select an overall winner. The winner receives a CA $1,500.00 cash prize and a digital award that can be shared on social media.

Stage 2: the Regional round (Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia):

Stage 3: the Global round – the four Regional winners:

The Global winner is announced after all four presentations are completed. The winner receives an international certificate, a trophy, one-week practical industry experience in Hong Kong, London or New Jersey, one-week academic training in the TT Club’s Head Office in London, and one-year free subscription to the International Transport Journal in English, French or German.
