“Going the Extra Mile” for another BIFA win!
1 minute to read
On Thursday 20th January, we attended one of our favourite events of the year. The BIFA Freight Service Awards took place at The Brewery in London, hosted by well-known sports personality, Matt Dawson. We were listed at finalists in two categories; ‘Extra Mile’ and ‘Supply Chain Management’.
We were delighted to win the ‘Extra Mile’ award this year for our work with Mexico City Metro and our vital role in the fulfilment of time-critical delivery of track components. This project was a major undertaking that saw us, not only taking on their customary role of freight forwarder and total logistics manager, but taking on the additional role of the assembly line for the actual finished parts. Following our involvement, Mexico City Metro was able to run on time – an achievement made all the more considerable given the logistical challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic and the Suez Canal closure of March 2021.
