The British International Freight Association (BIFA) has chosen Ade Adepitan, one of the UK’s most well-known Paralympians and broadcasters, as the host for its annual Freight Service Awards competition.
BIFA’s Freight Service Awards are open to all members of the trade association, which represents UK companies engaged in managing the international movement of freight by all modes of transport.
Sponsored by a number of blue chip companies, each of the eleven award categories is recognised as very prestigious and winning an award has become more coveted year-on-year.
The awards ceremony luncheon is an annual event on the industry calendar. This event will take place at The Brewery in London on Thursday January 16th next year when Ade Adepitan will host more than 500 BIFA members and their guests.
