UK freight forwarder association BIFA yesterday held its annual awards, hosted by paralympian and broadcasters Ade Adepitan and attended by more than 550 people.
Host Adepitan announced eight winners from the 33 freight forwarding companies that were shortlisted as finalists, as well as three individual award winners.
The winners of the eight General, Modal and Specialist categories in the Awards, which has established a benchmark of quality for the British freight forwarding industry for more than a quarter of the century, are: Brunel Air Cargo Services, Core Management Logistics Ltd, Davies Turner, Morgan Cargo, Noatum Logistics, Spatial Global, Westbound Logistics and Zencargo.
In the Individual categories, the winner of the Young Freight Forwarder Award was Jenna Morgan of Wallis Shipping. In the Apprentice of the Year category, which was first introduced in the 2018 awards, the judges declared Thomas Frost of Geodis Freight Forwarding and Jack Reddington of Hemisphere Freight Services as joint winners.
During this year’s Awards luncheon, Adepitan delivered a motivating speech, which gave some clear insight into how challenges need to be overcome if success is to be achieved.
Robert Keen, BIFA director general, said: “After 30 years, the BIFA Freight Service awards have established a reputation as the Oscars of the UK freight and logistics industry. Whilst the awards are all about rewarding excellence, the luncheon once again proved to be an excellent opportunity for Members and guests to network, cement existing relationships, and develop new ones.”
