With the introduction of the Ro-Ro Line of the Year and the Break Bulk Operator of the Year awards, the Global Freight Awards is the only awards programme for the shipper that recognises the excellence of all the various types of transport operators that allow the cargo owner to move freight by air, sea, rail and road.

The awards ceremony was held at the Lancaster London Hotel in the UK on November 3 and gathered more than 500 freight and logistics professionals. 

Also winning an award at this year's Global Freight Awards was the 2013 Orcelle Award winner, ECOsubsea. ECOsubsea won the Product Innovation Award. To learn more about ECOsubsea and the Orcelle Award, click here.
