The annual BIFA Freight Service Awards took place in London yesterday, with the winners revealed by footballing legend Kevin Keegan.

The awards took place at The Brewery in London and attracted a record-breaking audience of 550 people who raised more than £3,500 for international development charity Transaid.

The Air Cargo Services award was won by Noatum Logistics, beating fellow finalists Deugro (UK), GEODIS Freight Forwarding UK, and Mandarin Global Logistics.

Newly appointed BIFA director general, Steve Parker commented: “Now in their 34th year, the Freight Service Awards provide the perfect opportunity to come together and celebrate excellence within the sector and it was a pleasure to participate in something that is so highly regarded throughout the industry.

“BIFA thanks the Members that submitted their entries to us, all of which were of very high quality, making the judging process very difficult. I would like to offer my congratulations to everybody who won an award and those who were shortlisted – the array of talent from everybody was exceptional.

“I would also like to recognise the support and contribution of the sponsors to the running of the competition. Representatives from each category’s sponsor have been generous enough to give their time to conduct the judging and selection process for each award.”
