The successful candidate will also be flown to Dubai in Emirates business class to tour its the new cargo handling terminal and facility and gain learning time with some of the most senior figures in the industry.

"We’re committed to supporting the growth of the individuals in our industry in Australia," Emirates cargo manager Australia Greg Johnson says.

"It’s for this reason that we’d like to recognise those with the talent and aspirations for a long-term career in cargo and freight."

Entrants will need to already be employed by an organisation within the cargo and freight forwarding industry that is a registered member of the CBFCA and be willing to attend a judging interview where they can demonstrate their need for further education.
