Picking a winner is always tough…

Building a business isn’t easy. Starting up, finding your target market, increasing your sales, stealing a march on the competition….

That’s why it is so very important to celebrate our business achievements – to take stock, look at how far we’ve come and spend time with our customers and our staff who helped us along the way.

But to build a business and then take it overseas – that’s a phenomenal achievement in anyone’s book. We should know – we’ve been working with businesses trading internationally for more than 20 years and have unrivalled experience in this region of transporting goods for SMEs overseas.

That’s why we are delighted once again to be a sponsor of the Shropshire Business Awards in 2017, organised by Shropshire Chamber of Commerce. We love to read the entries detailing the fantastic successes of overseas sales when it’s time to shortlist nominations and to visit the businesses working so hard to build markets beyond our borders as judges before making a final, and always tough, decision.

The Global Freight International Trade Award at the 2017 Shropshire Business Awards is again a closely fought battle and no matter who picks up the trophy on June 23, all the finalists, Sirane Ltd, Red Step Marketing, KRL and Stallion AI Services, should be congratulated.

As a former winner at these awards, and as an international trade business ourselves, we know what it takes to go the extra mile for our customers. By sea, by air, by rail, by road!
