An Ipswich logistics director has scooped a major industry award.
Louis Perrin, of global logistics firm Hemisphere Freight Services, beat back five ‘outstanding individuals’ under the age of 32 to take the Young Freight Forwarder of the Year at the British International Freight Association (BIFA) Freight Service Awards at a ceremony in London.
The firm also picked up a finalist award in the Ocean Services category.
“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,” said Louis.
“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.”
