Hemisphere Freight Services Win Another BIFA Award
7th February 2024
Hemisphere Freight Services, our members from the UK, are very pleased to share they won the Project Forwarding category at their recent outing to the BIFA Freight Service Awards 2023.
The BIFA Freight Service Awards 2023 took place at The Brewery in London, hosted by ‘Queen of the Pit-Lane’, Suzi Perry.
Not only were the company shortlisted for two categories, Hemisphere took the win for the fifth time!
This year, the company won the ‘Project Forwarding’ category for their work on the T-Pylon project.
Being nominated showcased Hemisphere's involvement in the commission of 116 new pylons in the South West of England.
This project is part of National Grid’s Hinkley Point C power station initiative to provide low-carbon energy to 6 million homes and businesses as part of the UK’s efforts to reach net-zero by 2050.
Hemisphere were asked to handle the logistics for the components from a UK port to the various locations of the final installations.
Their scope of operations covered unloading vessels, hiring cranes, providing storage facilities, marshalling the many pylon parts, and organising the trucking - ensuring a safe and timely arrival to the sites.
"It was the personal involvement from our team and our fierce attention to detail that enabled the project to run as smoothly as it did for all involved."
