Freight operator wins ‘Logistics Provider of the Year’ Award


First GBRf, Britain’s most reliable rail freight operator, has picked up the ‘Logistic Provider of the Year’ Award at McCloskey’s Coal UK Conference, 2009, which took place on Thursday 26 February, 2009 at Lords Cricket Ground in London. 
The award, which was introduced by Coal UK in 2006, asks customers, suppliers and fellow freight operators to vote for their favourite logistic provider. The company with the highest amount of nominations is then awarded the prize. 
David Price, editor of Coal UK, which runs the awards said: “We are pleased to present the award for ‘Logistics Provider of the Year’ to rail freight operators First GBRf.  Our readers are given the opportunity to cast their votes anonymously for their favourite provider and this year First GBRf were top by a large margin. We offer them our heartfelt congratulations and wish them further success in 2009.” 
John Smith, Managing Director at First GBRf said: “At First GBRf we are always thrilled when we win awards, but this one, which we see as the ‘players’ player of the year’ award because it is decided by the very people who commission coal services or run them themselves, really is something special. It proves that the people who are using our trains to transport coal, and the coal industry at large, are genuinely impressed with what we are doing.” 
The award win marks the third time First GBRf have been formally recognised for success in the coal field. In September 2008 the haulier picked up the ‘Freight Achievement’ title at the National Rail Awards and more recently at the HSBC Rail Business Awards the operator was highly commended in the new freight category for its work on coal.  
First GBRf first started hauling coal in 2006 and has, in less than two years, achieved a 12% share of the market.
