Awards

Because independent endorsement matters

Trade awards are a fantastic way to recognise the hard work of our colleagues and showcase our services. They raise our profile and are an independent endorsement of the value that we deliver to our customers. In the last four years, Unsworth has won 10 awards, embracing customer-centricity, staff development and innovation.

Awarding Bodies

In 2013 the Unsworth board decided to start preparing entries for a small number of carefully selected awards to demonstrate how Unsworth stand apart from the competition, underline value to customers and partners, boost morale and attract new talent.
BIFA
The British International Freight Association is the trade association for UK freight forwarders. Their annual BIFA Freight Service Awards are always fiercely contested, as recognition by your peers is highly valued.

CILT
The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport is the professional body for freight forwarders and supply chain practitioners. The CILT Annual Awards honour excellence throughout the profession, celebrating talent, innovation and success.

FSB
The Federation of Small Business Awards recognises the best of the best across the UK, in every sector and industry, shining a light on some of the best, most innovative and most determined small businesses.

FTA
The Freight Transport Awards feature operators who move goods by road, rail, sea and air, and the industries that depend on the efficient movement of those goods such as retail, manufacturing, construction and the public sector.

Global Freight Awards
Incorporating Lloyds List and other leading industry titles, Informa’s Global Freight Awards, are probably the largest and most significant media run awards for the freight, logistics and supply chain sectors.

National Apprenticeship Awards
These government sponsored awards recognise excellence in growing talent with apprenticeships, and apprentices who have made, and keep making, a significant contribution to their workplaces.

WCA
Founded in 1988 WCA is the world’s largest and most powerful network of independent freight forwarders, with over 6982 member offices in 189 countries around the world. Its annual awards recognise excellence and value across the network.
