Australian Shipping & Maritime Industry Awards
Transtar has been named ‘Freight Forwarder of the Year’ at the Lloyd's List Australia 18th Australian Shipping and Maritime Industry Awards.
A delegation of 500 industry members celebrated the Australian shipping industry’s night of nights, the Australian Shipping & Maritime Industry Awards, in Melbourne on November 21st. 16 awards and prizes, representing the pinnacle of industry achievement, were presented against the backdrop of the Yarra River in one of Melbourne's most stunning venues, Atlantic Peninsula.
Transtar’s growth story and performance has been acknowledged by reputable organisations like BRW, ACBA and Containerisation International since 2010, with numerous finalist placings confirming our business meets the criteria to be judged alongside the industry’s best. Transtar has previously been a finalist in the Lloyds List Australia category of ‘Freight Forwarder of the Year’, having received the ‘Highly Commended’ award in 2012, and is proud to have gone one better in 2013.
For a business that has been trading since 1986, Transtar’s ability to grow profitably through these challenging economic conditions is a major achievement. We appreciate this industry recognition, and give credit to our loyal and talented teams in ANZ and Asia, the belief and support of our many stakeholders, and, of course, our customers, who continue to drive us, to deliver a better service and outcome for their businesses.
