Yesterday the UK forwarding industry descended on London’s Brewery in Moorgate, for the British International Freight Association’s (BIFA) Freight Service Awards 2018, with Actualis clients finalists in three categories.
Double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes MBE did an outstanding job as host, with a moving motivational speech on what it takes to be a winner.
