UK – The British International Freight Association (BIFA), has extended the deadline for its annual Freight Service Awards competition, which are open to all members of the trade association. The deadline for entry registration has been extended by one week to September 30th, with written award entry submissions due by October 14th.

The awards ceremony luncheon will take place on Thursday 19 January next year and will be hosted by former competitive swimmer and television presenter, Sharron Davies. Robert Keen, Director General of BIFA: “The BIFA Freight Service Awards are a great opportunity for the best in the industry to be recognised by their peers.

“Every year, after the awards have taken place, I hear from members who say that they wish they had entered. So we have decided to extend the deadline to give all the trade association's corporate members, large, mid-sized or small, a little more time to get their submissions together."

BIFA invites further registrations in the following categories of the BIFA Freight Service Awards 2016 competition:

  • Air Cargo Services Award - Sponsored by: IAG Cargo
  • Cool Award - Sponsored by: American Airlines Cargo
  • European Logistics Award - Sponsored by: TT Club
  • Ocean Services Award - Sponsored by: Port of Antwerp
  • Staff Development Award - Sponsored by: Albacore Systems

The registration deadline has been extended to Friday 30 September. Your completed entry must be delivered to BIFA by 5pm on Friday 14th October. A judges’ meeting will take place in late October to select four finalists per category, and winners will be announced at the BIFA Awards Ceremony luncheon on Thursday 19 January 2017, which will take place at its traditional venue: the Porter Tun Room at the Brewery, London EC1.
