Industry awards announced

"Joni" Casey
Four industry awards have been announced in the US and UK

The US Containerization and Intermodal Institute (CII) will present the 2015 Connie Award to Wolfgang Freese, President of Hapag-Lloyd, Region Americas, for his leadership and contributions to the shipping industry within the last four decades at Hapag-Lloyd.

A Lifetime Achievement Award will also be presented to Joanne F "Joni" Casey, President and CEO of the Intermodal Association of North America (IANA), for her contributions to the freight transportation industry. The Connie Luncheon will be held Monday, December 7, 2015 at the Metropolitan Room at the Newark Club.

"Wolfgang Freese and Joni Casey have spent their careers committed to domestic and international trade and transportation and have helped this industry make significant progressive changes," said Michael J DiVirgilio, CII President. "We are pleased to honor these contributions with the Connie and Lifetime Achievement awards."

Associated British Ports (ABP) has been named Business of the Year at the UK Rail Freight Group awards. Judges hailed ABP’s record of innovation in the freight sector, particularly the Immingham Renewable Fuels Terminal (IRFT) on the Humber, claimed by ABP tp be the UK’s most technically advanced biomass handling facility. The £130M terminal was also runner up in the Technical Development award category.

Tony Berkeley, RFG Chairman, said: “ABP is a well-deserved winner of the business of the year award. Its renewable fuels project at the port of Immingham is helping propel the biomass sector and is important in continuing to develop the future growth of biomass traffic on rail. ABP’s success is typical of many RFG members that are leading the way in innovation in the freight sector. Biomass innovation is particularly important as the coal market continues to see declining volumes.”

ABP Chief Executive James Cooper said: “Ports like Immingham are a vital part of the supply chain for businesses up and down Britain, facilitating trade and helping protect national energy security. “Rail is key to allowing ports fulfil this role by providing an efficient and environmentally friendly means of moving goods and commodities to and from our ports.

"Together with our customers, ABP generates around one quarter of the UK’s rail freight. Helping to deliver the most efficient and effective rail services connecting our ports is an important part of our commitment to providing the highest standards of customer service and to promoting sustainable transport."

Derrick Potter of Potter Logistics was presented with the RFG’s lifetime achievement award, recognising his huge contribution to the rail freight sector as he retires and also steps down as an RFG Board member.
