As COVID-19 has severely limited public events for the past fourteen months , you may have missed that late in 2019  at it's World Congress in Cape Town FIATA elected  Basil L.S. Pietersen, the former Chair and longtime director of the South African Association of Freight Forwarders to serve a two-year term as President of the global organization.As we celebrate Black History Month here in America and elsewhere around the world, it’s important to share that Mr. Pietersen at FIATA in 2021 is one of the very few African born top executives to serve at any global transportation association in the world.
