Shipping News Feature

PAKISTAN- Container shipping line Safmarine tells us it has always believed that being accessible, friendly and flexible is a winning formula and a recent industry award presented to Safmarine by the Pakistan International Freight Forwarders Association (PIFFA) is not only an acknowledgement of the efforts of its Safmarine Pakistan team, but it also attests to the success of the company’s highly personalised business approach and the value freight forwarders attach to this.

The ‘Friendly Line’ award was presented to Safmarine Pakistan at PIFFA’s inaugural Excellence Awards 2012 event following an online voting poll by PIFFA’s more than 500 members comprising freight forwarders, both local and international. Speaking at the awards ceremony, PIFFA Chairman Asim Saeed said:

“This award is a reflection of the strong bond Safmarine maintains with the PIFFA community and is an acknowledgement of Safmarine’s relationship-focused business approach.”

The PIFFA Excellence Awards 2012 took place at the Pearl Continental Hotel, Karachi on June 16, 2012 and commenting on the award, Hasan Faraz, Commercial Manager for Safmarine Pakistan, said the sought-after acknowledgement ‘recognises our teamwork and is proof that by working together, we can win together and make the difference, the Safmarine Way’.
