2016 Freight Industry Times Supply Chain Awards

19 April 2016

Our Manging Director was delighted to accept an invitation from Richard Shreeve of Labeline to the Freight Industry Times Awards, hosted by The National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.

Richard Shreeve was one of the award judges for Freight Industry Times, and also a good friend and colleague of Hazchem Network; so Ali Karim was delighted to be asked to be his guest, and spend time with him.

Richard Shreeve and Labeline are important suppliers to Hazchem Network, with Richard first meeting with us in 2004, when he worked for The National Chemical Emergency Centre in Harwell, and was instrumental in setting up the www.hers-info.co.uk consortium, our unique emergency response scheme for all our goods while within the Hazchem Network Supply Chain. Since then Richard moved onto Labeline the premier documentation support company for those who work with Dangerous Goods

It was good to mingle with colleagues, meeting up with Paul Sanders, Chair of Association of Pallet Networks [APN], Richard Posse of DHL and many others.

So after an excellent dinner, it was time to support the Charity that Freight Industry Times had selected for the evening Transaid; and then settle into our seats to see who the judges had selected for recognition in 2016.
