Prospectus

Pakistan International Freight Forwarders Association – PIFFA is a non-profitable organization representing more than 600 Member Companies engaged in International Freight Forwarding and Logistics Services.

PIFFA was established in 2005 and is Pakistan’s National Member at FIATA (International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations) and CFCFA (CAREC Federation of Carrier & Forwarder Associations).

PIFFA aims to achieve standardization in the Industry and promote high degree of professional conduct among its Members. With this objective in mind, right at the inception of PIFFA in 2005, need was felt to have training facility to enable the freight forwarding fraternity acquaint itself with updated and modern norms of the international freight forwarding. The Founding Chairman Mr. Babar Badat approached FIATA for assistance in this respect and with his efforts a team of FIATA instructors visited Karachi in December’2006 to coach local resource persons. This core group specially coached under FIATA TOT Program was instructed in course development, methodology of instructions, pedagogy & presentations and finally assessment and evaluation.

The diploma course was developed during January-June’2007 by the local resource persons and submitted to FIATA for validation. The FIATA Advisory Board on Vocational Training (ABVT) before validating the course in its session held in Dubai on 20th October’2007, oversaw development of the course material of each subject. The course is revalidated at a regular interval of 4 years by FIATA as to standards and adherence to their guidelines.

During the course, the quality of instructions is monitored through spot visits and exchange of views with Faculty Members and participants by Training Manager and Training & Education Committee Members. The participants’ feedback / comments through evaluation forms on course contents and instructors delivery have been of immense value to bring about improvement.
