There was delight for our Director Louis Perrin at the BIFA (British International Freight Association) Freight Service Awards as he scooped a major industry award.
Among the five nominees for the prestigious category that recognises the work of outstanding individuals under the age of 32 in the freight industry, Louis picked up the prize during the ceremony at The Brewery in London. Presented by acclaimed businessman and event host Levi Roots, the award is sure to take pride of place on Louis’ mantelpiece. In addition, Dan Leach received on the company’s behalf the finalist award in the Ocean Services category.
Industry recognition for Hemisphere Freight
The ceremony, in which our Bladeroom Data Centre case study also saw us nominated for the Ocean Services Award, was the first time that we at Hemisphere Freight Services have put ourselves forward for recognition in front of industry peers on such a notable stage. Louis – while understandably delighted from a personal perspective – was also really pleased with the way the awards ceremony highlighted the strides the business has made.
“It was a really significant day for Hemisphere. For our expertise to be recognised at industry level is a very proud moment for us all and I have so much to thank the team for in the work that they have put in to help me excel in my role. The professionalism and know-how we collectively demonstrated across some of the projects I have been involved in was cited as a major reason for winning the award, which shows we must be doing a lot of the right things.” Louis Perrin
Louis’ success now opens up additional opportunities, including the chance to compete for the Young International Freight Forwarder of the Year award in 2018. For the wider company, the BIFA Awards presented a good opportunity to chat and socialise with industry professionals and enjoy the food, drink and atmosphere at the excellent venue.
As Hemisphere continue to grow, we are looking for further talent to help build on our success in 2018 and beyond. If you’re interested in finding out more about working for us in one of our locations across the UK, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
