Shortlist revealed for BIFA Awards

BIFA Awards 2020

The BIFA Awards are fast approaching and 26 freight forwarding companies have been shortlisted as finalists for the nine categories, while 11 individuals made the shortlist in the Apprentice of the Year and Young Freight Forwarder categories.

Robert Keen, BIFA’s Director General, commented: “It is no surprise that many entries to the BIFA Freight Service Awards 2021 document the obstacles encountered by our members since the onset of Covid-19 and the exit of the UK from the EU, and the innovative measures taken to overcome them, while continuing to manage their businesses through an incredibly trying time.”

In the Air Cargo Services Award, Kerry Logistics (UK) Ltd, Maltacourt, Pentagon Freight Services PLC, and Uniserve Group are the shortlised companies.

Keen adds: “Over the last 18 months, the COVID-19 pandemic and Brexit have created huge challenges for our members and propelled international forwarding into the public eye as never before.

“During this extraordinary period, during which the world came to a virtual standstill, BIFA members overcame many of those challenges to maintain the UK’s supply chains.

“The finalists in each category will now go forward to the final round of judging with winners due to be announced at the BIFA Annual Luncheon and Awards Ceremony on Thursday 20th January 2022.”
