Freight company to support global success of Midlands-based businesses
A Midlands shipping company which supports businesses with their overseas trade is helping to celebrate their success by backing one of the UK’s biggest awards.
Telford based Global Freight Services has thrown its weight behind the 2022 Federation of Small Business Awards by sponsoring the International Business of the Year category in both the West Midlands and East Midlands regions.
It is the fourth year in which the company has sponsored the award and managing director Anton Gunter is urging businesses who wish to be recognised for their international success to get their entries in before the deadline early next year.
He said: “The Midlands is a vibrant area and we know from experience that there are many businesses which are operating sustainable export programmes and growing as a result of international trade.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for these businesses to celebrate their achievements and demonstrate the success of their global reach.”
The criteria for the International Business of the Year Award calls for novice and established importers and exporters to demonstrate how working internationally has benefited business profitably, growth and strategy.
Applications for the West Midlands heat must be submitted by January 30th whilst applications for the East Midlands round close on February 20th.
Winners of the regional rounds will then be invited to a national awards ceremony to be held in Glasgow later in the year.
Mr Gunter said: “As experts in the export sector, we are delighted to be sponsoring these awards again and it will be fantastic, after a year’s break because of the pandemic, to get back to a face-to-face awards dinner and networking event.
“We’re really looking forward to finding out more about businesses in the Midlands who are successfully trading around the world.”
