The GIMA Awards 2017 have confirmed that multi-model logistics provider FCL Global Forwarding is celebrating its fourth year as headline sponsors of one of the garden retail industry’s most popular events.
FCL Global Forwarding commercial director Paul O’Malley said: “The garden retail industry is a pivotal part of our business, so it’s great to be able to give back through our ongoing sponsorship of the GIMA Awards. The awards themselves are a fantastic way of celebrating the best the industry has to offer, and it’s a pleasure to be part of this. The evening also provides a great opportunity to network with both new and potential clients. For us, the awards really are not to be missed.”
