FSEW shortlisted for prestigious national award

Freight Systems Express Wales (FSEW) has been shortlisted for the BIFA Freight Services Awards 2014 in recognition of the company’s environmental credentials.

The company has been shortlisted in the Environment Award category of the prestigious awards, which take place on Thursday in recognition of the outstanding work that is being done across the freight industry in the UK.

Cardiff-based FSEW is one of only a handful of freight forwarders in the UK to operate its own truck fleet, which ensures a seamless container collection, delivery and intermodal service for every client, despite truck shortages within the marketplace in recent months.

The company is part of a global alliance of forwarding agents offering door-to-door services in over 100 countries and Managing Director, Geoff Tomlinson, who oversees the 32-strong Cardiff team, said: “Both consumers and businesses have rightly become more and more environmentally conscious over recent years and sustainability and the environment have always been at the core of our values here at FSEW.

“We are delighted that this has been recognised and to be in such prestigious company on the shortlist in this category. Our environmental credentials appeal to many of our clients and we take pride in reacting to their needs and requirements.”

FSEW was established by Geoff Tomlinson in 2002 and has its own fleet of Euro 6 trucks, which offer improved fuel usage and lower CO² emissions and older trailers have also been replaced with new skeletal and tautliners.

FSEW was also the first South Wales company to identify the underused potential of the rail network for freight and linked up with Freightliner and Stobart Rail to take containers off the road. It now makes up to 9,000 container movements a year by rail.
