We have been nominated for the Staff Development Award, demonstrating our commitment and investment in the training and development of our dedicated team.
The awards ceremony is set to take place on Thursday, 19 January 2023 at The Brewery right in the heart of London. The 2022 BIFA Freight Awards ceremony will be hosted by English football legend, Kevin Keegan.
BIFA Freight Awards history
The BIFA Freight Awards competition is now in its 34th year, and is considered one of the most prestigious in the logistics industry. Last year, the event was hosted by former England rugby star, Matt Dawson.
For this year’s event, we’re honoured to be among more than 25 freight forwarding companies nominated for awards for services to the logistics industry.
About the Staff Development Award
The BIFA Freight Services Award for staff development acknowledges the commitment of freight forwarding companies, like Speedy Freight, to developing and training staff.
When selecting companies for nomination, BIFA judges are looking for businesses that ‘encourage and develop all personnel to be their best.’
BIFA’s official website states: “BIFA Members, whatever their size, need comprehensive training programmes to keep abreast of regular changes in regulations, industry practices and general business matters.
“In the Staff Development Award category, the judges want to understand how you encourage and develop all personnel to ‘be their best’ and contribute to the success and direction of your business.”
Speedy Freight setting new standards
Our nomination for the BIFA Staff Development Award highlights the value and importance we place on continuously training and developing personnel in what is a highly fast-paced industry.
With a local, national, and international courier network operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, we take our commitment to training and development very seriously.
Speedy Freight operates a number of specialist vehicles and offers several specialist services, all of which require continual, high-level training to maintain the standard of excellence that each of our customers have come to expect.
We are more than a ‘run of the mill’, same day courier service. Elevating standards across the logistics industry requires the right people. If you invest in people, and demonstrate that you value them, you will get the best out of them.
That’s why across every area of the Speedy Freight network, whether its drivers out on the road or those handling customer enquiries, every individual is seen, heard, valued, and gets the very best investment we can give them.
At every opportunity, we make space for personnel to advance their careers and be part of our continued success as a logistics company.
After all, it’s our team that makes us worthy of being nominated for such prestigious awards.
