UK – The British International Freight Association (BIFA) has added a culinary touch to its annual Freight Service Awards event as this year's competition opens for entries. BIFA's Director General, Robert Keen has revealed that the celebrity host for the awards ceremony in January 2018 will be entrepreneur and musician Levi Roots. Keen said:

“I am often asked for the secret ingredients that constitute the recipe for success for any company looking to win one of our awards. So it seemed appropriate to invite someone who chose to sing his way to success to win financial backing for the launch of his 'Reggae Reggae Caribbean' sauce in the BBC's Dragons' Den competition.

“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. Levi Roots is a classic example of someone who has used an award to go on to achieve even more successes, and I would hope that any of the winners of our awards would see the same results.”

Now in their 29th year, BIFA’s Freight Service Awards are open to all members of the trade association, which represents UK companies engaged in the international movement of freight by all modes of transport. For 2017 the entry process has been simplified and all categories are now completely free to enter. The deadline for entries is September 25th.

This event will take place on Thursday, January 18th next year and will provide a valuable opportunity for the 500 or more attendees to acknowledge the winners as well as network with people from within the industry.

The BIFA Freight Service Awards are separated into ten categories, as follows:
