In autumn 2020 the work of the Estonian Logistics and Freight Forwarding Association (hereinafter ELEA) was reorganized, as a result of which the position of the secretary-general of ELEA was liquidated. Also, the articles of association and structure of the association were changed. The members of the association elected the supervisory board for the first time for the next two years with the following members: Andres Matkur – ACE Logistics Estonia AS became members; Remo Kirss – DPD Eesti AS; Toomas Orutar – Logistika Pluss OÜ; Rainer Rohtla – Via3L OÜ; Joel Timm – Balti Logistika AS; Raul Toomsalu – Operail AS. On Friday, 27 November 2020, Toomas Orutar was unanimously chosen the chairman of the supervisory board of the Estonian Logistics and Freight Forwarding Association (ELEA). The supervisory board elected and confirmed Herkki Kitsing as a new member and chairman of the management board of ELEA. Related to the amendments of the articles of association and restructuring, the work of ELEA has become much more active by co-operating more with several ministries, authorities, embassies and other professional associations and organizations both in Estonia and abroad.
