Each year, Trade Finance Global nominates and presents Shipping Awards in Excellence to entities that directly or indirectly contribute towards the development of shipping, import/export and trade finance sectors..
The TFG Shipping Awards are totally independent and presented in recognition of outstanding companies/bodies in the shipping, maritime, transport and logistics sector for being leaders and pioneers in their respective space, driving innovation and contributing to international trade and especially skills and knowledge development..
The categories are
- Best Shipping Blog
- Best Shipping Network
- Best Shipping Body
- Most Innovative Shipping Company
- Best Shipping Carrier Services Company
- Best Shipping Recruitment Agency
- Best Shipping and Transport Insights
Each category was judged by a panel of professional judges and 2016 was the biggest awards to date, chosen from over 30 companies across 7 sectors..
I am pleased to announce that Shipping and Freight Resource received the “BEST SHIPPING BLOG” award for 2016..
According to TFG’s judging panel
“Shipping and Freight Resource were singled out for their engaging content and TFG felt that it provided immense value for new and established players in the shipping industry. This was also reflected by the engaged and active global community of Shipping and Freight Resource and their coverage of in depth information for industry specialists.”
James Sinclair, Editor of Trade Finance Global said:
“Shipping needs to be protected; it’s involves 90% of the world’s trade and is a key driver in our economy. There is a maritime skills gap, a need to reform the UK shipping register, and invest in seafarer training, if the UK wants to maintain its stronghold and boost the UK’s multi-billion pound shipping industry.”
“We were proud to nominate winners across our categories this year. It’s been a pleasure for the judging panel reading independent reviews, talking to experts in the sector, and reviewing websites.
“It’s good to see that digital is driving innovation and competition, which is why we have awarded shipping companies who are striving for digital excellence. Trade finance is a growing industry and we really support shipping companies driving this.”
This blog has grown quite a lot in terms of its popularity and readership and I am very honoured and privileged to receive this award.. This further motivates me to produce more educational and interesting content for all my readers..
I would like to thank TFG for this nomination and award, but most of all, I would like to THANK MY LOYAL READERS for making this endeavour possible..
It is the interest and participation that you have shown that makes it all worthwhile..
