Entries are now open for the British International Freight Association (BIFA) – www.bifa.org – annual Freight Service Awards competition, which are an important part of BIFA’s mission to encourage its Members in their pursuit of improved standards and excellence within the logistics and supply chain industry.
Now in their 34th year, BIFA’s Freight Service Awards are open to full Members of the trade association, which represents UK companies engaged in managing the global movement of freight and international supply chains by all modes of transport.
As well as encouraging and rewarding high standards and professionalism, these awards, which are free to enter, also represent the ultimate recognition of special achievement in different sectors of the freight forwarding and logistics industry.
Sponsored by a number of blue chip companies, each of the eleven award categories is recognised as very prestigious and winning an award has become more coveted year-on-year.
The deadline for entry is Thursday, 6 October 2022 and entry forms and guidelines for entrants to all 11 categories are available to download from the BIFA website.
Finalists will be announced towards the end of this year, with the winners being revealed at the BIFA Freight Service Awards ceremony at The Brewery in central London on Thursday, 19 January 2023, which has become an annual event on the industry calendar, typically attracting more than 500 BIFA members and their guests.
Comments Robert Keen, Director General of BIFA: “The awards represent the best opportunity for the pace-setters in the industry to be recognised by their peers, and every year the standard of the entries improves.”
