Shipping News Feature UK – There are some things which are immutable, the tides, the changing of the seasons and the annual shipping industry festivities which are the British International Freight Association (BIFA) Awards but time to nominate an individual or a company for one of these latter accolades is fast running out! Now in their 29th year, BIFA's Freight Service Awards are open to all members of the trade association, which represents a host of UK companies engaged in the international freight forwarding and logistics industry.

BIFA asks for submissions that detail a relevant service or project such as a specific case study, the development of a new service for a particular customer, or a more generic example of good practice, but you have only until September 25th to lodge your nominations. Sponsored by a number of blue chip companies, each with a foot in the logistics camp, the prestige of winning an award has become even more coveted as the years pass and Robert Keen, Director General of BIFA, observes:

“Every year, after the awards have taken place, I get members who say that they wish they had entered. As the entry process has been simplified, and all categories are now free to enter, I would urge all members to get their entries submitted now, so they don’t have any regrets later. The awards are an important part of BIFA’s mission to encourage our members in their pursuit of improved standards and excellence within the logistics and supply chain industry.”

Efficacy of the awards and their popularity as a networking hub can be seen by the return of the same supporters every year, and this year’s trophies and their respective sponsors are almost a mirror image of last year’s, and read as follows:
