Peter Quantrill, Director General of BIFA, said: “This year, the entries from new Members and first time entrants, show the strong interest in the Awards that have come to represent the best of British forwarding. The BIFA awards are inclusive and encourage entries from small, medium and large companies. I applaud the effort put into all the entries that were, as ever, of the highest quality. It is not luck, but hard work and determination to provide customers with first-class service every time, which is key to winning one of the BIFA awards.”
