On 19 November, ATA member JCS Livestock was awarded the Specialist Freight Award at the Global Freight Awards, held at a gala ceremony at the esteemed five-star Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London.
In the Global Freight Awards' own words:
"The Specialist Freight Award aims to recognise and reward high performance, a drive for innovation, customer centricity and demonstrable expertise. Most importantly it rewards excellent results for both the customer and the provider.
The winner of this category provides animal transport solutions for everything, from anteaters to zebras, and pampered pooches to prized pigs. Its services include collection, delivery, flights, customs clearance, and bespoke crates for all shapes and sizes of animals.
Congratulations to JCS Livestock for its specialist work with conservation bodies and the public to transport pets, livestock and zoo animals around the world."
