This article reports on the ballot result regarding the migration of British International Freight Association (BIFA) members to the Institute of Logistics and Transport (ILT). On February 4, 2004 BIFA announced that the vote had been heavily in favor of migration. The ILT will be a natural home for those who recognized themselves as members of the Institute of Freight Professionals and the Institute of Freight Forwarders. ILT and its predecessors specialized in the needs of individual professionals for many years and it has the infrastructure to support their learning and development and the resources to provide the services required. ILT has been engaged for some months in a dialogue with BIFA to bring together freight forwarding and logistics skills into a single professional qualification environment. These developments will bring major benefits for the members of both bodies. Those joining ILT from BIFA will have access to the strong position of ILT in professional development and on the international scene. Existing ILT members will have the benefit of access to the skills of those coming from BIFA to the ILT to reinforce further the institute's strength in the areas of logistics and transport.
