Trade Finance Global – Shipping Awards for Excellence

Trade Finance Global Shipping Awards are totally independent. They are presented each year, recognising outstanding companies in the shipping, maritime, transport and logistics sector for being leaders and pioneers in their respective space, driving innovation and contributing to international trade.

Winning a TFG award is certainly something to shout about and winners often incorporate the awards logos as part of their email, marketing and promotional campaigns.

The TFG awards logo is a frequently used badge of excellence in both the intermediary (B2B) and direct (B2C) markets.

The Shipping Awards for Excellence will be based on independent trusted reviews, opinion from experts in the shipping sector and reflecting quantitative market data.
