Robert Keen, BIFA’s Director General, commented: “We were pleased by the response once again this year, especially for the two new categories introduced – the Cool Award and the Extra Mile Award. The latter award demonstrates our long held conviction that freight forwarding is often all about going the extra mile for the client. BIFA Members sell a service and when they can, they know that to go the extra mile can often cement a business relationship.”

The victors will be revealed at the BIFA Awards Ceremony Luncheon to be held on Thursday 21st January 2016 at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London, EC1.

Keen continued: “The awards encourage entries from small, medium and large companies, with the goal of identifying the highest standards of quality across the British freight forwarding and logistics sector. Every year Members tell us that they benefit from the process of application. Often in compiling the entry, managers and staff learn better ways of doing things. I would like to thank all the entrants and wish the finalists every success.”

BIFA is also pleased to announce the winner of the Young Freight Forwarder category prize draw. The prize, supplied by the category sponsor, Virgin Atlantic Cargo, is two return flights to New York. All candidates that registered in this category and submitted all the required documentation by the deadline date were entered into the draw. The winner is Hugo Cabos Larroya of Damco UK.
