Shipping News Feature

UK – Once again the annual British International Freight Association (BIFA) Awards will be held at the Brewery in London and nominations for the 2013 event are now open. Freight forwarding groups and others from the shipping industry can register themselves, or a company or colleague they consider worthy, for one of several awards ranging from ocean and air freight through project forwarding and European logistics to environmental, supply chain and staff categories, all of which are on offer again this year.

Last year’s event proved to be a record breaking affair with 520 of the great and the good from the industry packed into the prestigious location and the success of the event can be judged by the fact that all of last year’s nine category sponsors have confirmed once again that they will continue to support the event. The deadline for registration is 5pm on Friday 20th September, whilst the deadline for submissions/supporting documentation is at the same time on Friday 11th October 2013.

The Awards luncheon ceremony, to celebrate the achievements of the finalists and winners, will be held on Thursday 16th January 2014 at The Brewery, London EC1 with tickets available from September to what many consider one of the most important dates on the freight forwarding calendar.
