Judges' testimonials

Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC)

The awards provide an opportunity for actors at all positions of the supply chain to set out and challenge their processes, successes and failures both internally and as part of a global-scale event and use it as part of a continuous improvement process. The winners then set a refreshed bar for everyone to strive to better in the following years.

Alan Lewis Director


The Global Freight Awards are important to the the freight industry because it gives recognition from a broad spectrum of industry stakeholders.

Simon Polmear Logistics strategy manager

Lloyd's List Containers

The Global Freight Awards are important because an industry as complex and dynamic as ours needs to be celebrated. It is not about soothing egos, as companies and individuals need to be told they are appreciated so they continue to excel in the business and inspire others to follow their lead.

Linton Nightingale Deputy Editor

British International Freight Association (BIFA)

I think that the Global Freight Awards are important because, as a Judge, I know that the awards are fairly and neutrally decided so the best entry wins.
