Executive Officer, Irish International Freight Association
Since joining the IIFA in 2008, Seamus has developed the FIATA Diploma in Freight Forwarding (a 10-month training course covering the corner stones of the Freight Forwarding industry), from a classroom set-up to a fully online training program. Responsible for the continued development of the programme, Seamus has twice brought the internationally recognised training programme through re-validation with FIATA, most recently in March of 2017.
More recently, Seamus was part of the Team that delivered the Clear Customs Training initiative, helping Ireland to prepare for BREXIT.
In October 2013, Seamus was part of a 2 Person Delegation to attend the FIATA World Congress (the largest Global gathering of Freight, Logistics and Transport industries) in Singapore. At that event Seamus successfully campaigned to have Dublin selected as the host city for the 2016 FIATA World Congress. Seamus played a key role in planning the FIATA World Congress which took place in October 2016 in the Convention Centre, Dublin with over 700 International Delegates in attendance.
Seamus represents the Irish Freight industry internationally with FIATA, the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations, and CLECAT, the European Association for Freight Forwarders and Customs Clearance Brokers
