Freight Awards Deadline Extended - But Hurry
Shipping News Feature
UK – The British International Freight Association (BIFA) has extended the deadline for entries to its annual Freight Service Awards, giving those logistics outfits that missed out on the opportunity to enter their nominations to all modal, general and specialist categories, an extra week, as well as waiving the limit of three categories per member.

With the new deadline Monday 15th October at 9am, entrants are encouraged to submit their nominations as soon as possible, lest they miss out on this second chance. The categories are:

Entry is free of charge. Simply download the entry form, explain your entry with introduction (300 words), detail (600 words) and conclusion (100 words) then submit to BIFA.

Entrants to the Air, Cool, Ocean, Project Forwarding and Staff Development categories are particularly encouraged. The limit of three categories per company has been waived.

All entries submitted will be reviewed by members of the judging panel and a shortlist of finalists announced. All finalists will be invited to attend the BIFA Awards Luncheon ceremony on Thursday 17th January 2019 to receive their certificate from the event host, Dame Kelly Holmes (sponsored by ASM (UK) Ltd), and perhaps be declared category winner. Tickets for the BIFA Awards Luncheon Ceremony will go on sale in late October.

The submission deadline for Young Freight Forwarder has already closed whilst the new Apprentice of the Year category remains open for submissions until November 6.
